Merry Christmas

I can't believe it's Christmas already. Looking back, I also can't believe this is my eighth year blogging about Christmas. So many of you have followed me for such a long time. Thanks for all of your support and for coming along for the ride!





It wouldn't seem like Christmas to me without a little snow.










Puppy loves snow as much as I do . . .



Every Christmas my cross stitch calls. Usually too late . . . But there's always hope. We'll be doing a Christmas in July challenge next year to help some of us get a head start on our Christmas projects for 2017. 






I miss this guy at Christmas . . .




Who says a Christmas quilt can't have a little blue in it??



Driving around looking at lights in 2009 (not my house) . . .


Not my reindeer!


Our house. God bless the man who, despite the weather, has never missed a year putting up Christmas lights for me . . .






Merry Christmas! Have a lovely time with your families and friends and a wonderful holiday season after. 'Tis the season of Joy. My Christmas Words of Wisdom this year: Remember that peace begins at home, among family. Tell someone you love him or her, even if they're being disagreeable or Grinchy. Refuse to get pulled into their negativity. Sit down and listen more. Create peace through your interactions with others close to you. Then, send it out into the world. Be a light.

I'll be back with a brand new small quilt challenge on January 1. I hope you'll enjoy doing lots of other fun projects with me in 2017. Dear Jane group members - I'll be back there too, working on my blocks and hoping we can inspire each other to keep going on our quilts.

Merry Christmas to you and your family! Kathleen, I wanted to order a doll bed to put my miniature quilts on and didn't know if the people that you suggested some time ago still made them. If they do, please send me their address or phone number, I cannot locate the information. Thank you. ~Donna dcampbell1321@aol.com

Merry Christmas to you as well. Your puppy is so cute. There is something special about little black dogs. I am owned :-) by Emma, a soon to be four year old miniature schnauzer!

Peace and good health to all. . .

Thank you for the beautiful post Kathy. I just love peeking in at your house at Christmas. A Christmas in July challenge is a super idea. Looking forward to sew much SQT fun in 2017 & getting going on the quilts in your new book. Merry Christmas!

I hope you have a wonderful Christmas, Kathleen. I'm so looking forward to reading your new book! My hubby got it for me for Christmas at my suggestion (we are practical about gifts in our ole age, lol!). So I can't wait to begin sewing something from it in the New Year. All the Best in 2017, from Ontario, Canada!

Merry Christmas dear friend. May you and your family be blessed. I know what you mean about missing your little buddy. Both of our girls crossed over the Rainbow Bridge this past year. Their spirits live on. Miss them like crazy.
