Everyone can be a child at Christmas.
Everyone can celebrate with glee.
Everyone can make a Christmas wish list
And gather 'round to decorate the tree.
Everyone can watch for Santa's helpers,
Darting in and out as good elves should.
Telling Santa Claus if we've been naughty,
Letting Santa know if we've been good!
Everyone can wonder at a snowfall
Blanketing the hills in winter white
And enjoy the spirit of the season
Or the moonglow on a silent night.
Everyone can know the special magic
Of waiting for St. Nick on Christmas Eve.
Everyone can be a child at Christmas;
All we have to do is just believe.
~Jan Miller Girando~
Merry Christmas friends!

Christmas Sewing...

Here is a picture (not the best) of one of the sets of applique towels I'm sending off to one of my favorite families this Christmas!

The towels are from Target and the fabric is from my stash!

More Christmas sewing to come...

Some decorating...
I decided to get into some holiday decorating yesterday.
My original plan was to do just a bit of decorating each day.
I was just going to do the mantle, but I emptied that box and had things put up in about 10 minutes. I decided to keep going. So, one box at a time, I emptied and placed item after item.
Finished and tidied up in less than an hour!
That's it!
(I've finally learned, that if you box everything up just so the year before, it really is just that easy!)
I spent the rest of my day just smiling!
Simon & Annestelle were ever so excited when they came home from school!
There were reindeer games!
And, before bed, the question...
"When will we put up and decorate our Christmas trees?"
Now for today... more Christmas making!
Happy Hobbies!
