Nine more days! Wow. How quickly the time is going. I’m starting to feel as though I am almost ready. The Christmas events have been keeping us delightfully busy. It is such a great time of the year – especially when seen through the eyes of the little ones. There is such magic to the season.
A lighted white horse drawn carriage ride to view the Christmas decorations started off our celebrations.
The sewing moments were short, but I did manage to get a coaster set made in between the busyness. I used the “B” from the Temecula Mini ABC quilt.
The next night was the school concert. Every child in the school takes part in the musical – from kindergarten through 12th grade. The music is amazing!
This is the high school. They are so professional by this age.
I guess it can get a little tiring for a three year old!!!
In between we have also celebrated birthdays - a busy month for us.
Over the years I have followed Thearica at her Pigtales and Quilts blog. She now has a new blog found at www.stitchandquilt.com and she is having a wonderful giveaway to introduce people to her new blog. Be sure to go over and enter her giveaway. She recently made a great sewing machine caddy. I admired it and would you believe she sent it to me???? I love it as it keeps my tools under control and right at hand. The pincushion she sent matches the backing and it is such a generous size.
We have enjoyed some welcomed rainy weather for the past few weeks. I know it has caused a lot of damage to our local burn area (Camarillo Springs), but everything around us is greening up so nicely. It is that luscious spring green that we have not seen in the last few years. Everything looks so clean and bright after such a good washing.
I finally got my wrapping done. It is always such a relief to finish that task and know that I have accounted for each one of the children. The gifts spread out throughout the living room as we need to keep a clear path for the train under the tree.
As we inch forward to Christmas, I hope we all can take the time to enjoy the wonderful beauty of the season.
