Christmas is Coming!

Are you ready for Christmas? 
photoI still have some wrapping to do, but all my shopping is now complete.  Hooray! I was much more frugal this year than in the past, and I’m okay with that.  There comes a time when you just need to cut back, and this was the year.

Stormie helped her daddy open his birthday presents on December 11th…  something she really loves to do!  She loves pulling on the ribbon and wrapping herself up in it. 

Our Christmas tree is up.  I love looking at the ornaments we have collected through the years.  I have many that came from the AQS 1991American Quilter’s Society founders, Bill and Meredith Schroeder that I treasure.  They used to send them to their authors every holiday.  Here is a photo of one from 1991, front and back.  Isn’t it cute?  It’s made of wood and hand painted.  So cute!

Most evenings have been spent relaxing, snuggled up under this quilt that is still in progress.  Lots of hand quilting going into it, and I love how it looks.

A little peek at it until next time…
Yes, keeping you in suspense!
We got a lot of snow over the weekend, and more is coming down right now.  It’s so pretty!  I love having snow for Christmas, and can’t imagine living in a warm climate where everything is green for the holiday. 
I hope everything is good in your “neck of the woods,” and that your Christmas is happy, healthy and Blessed.

  2. Nothing wrong about being frugal at Christmas. Now you won't be dreading January charge bills. The handpainted wooden stocking ornaments are adorable.
