Christmas Fun...

I didn't post very much this month because I was so busy with the holiday season! I thought I would show you some pictures of the things that kept me busy. The picture above is a silk corsage that I made to send to Miss Carole. I didn't want to post the picture until I was sure she had opened her gift!

Here is a picture of Noah, my youngest child at his preschool program. I was a little bit happy and some sad. This is my last child in preschool! Last year his teacher would tell him to sing "Loud and Proud" and that is exactly what he did.

Within the space of about 4 days, we went to four music programs, celebrated our anniversary and celebrated a proud 7 year old birthday! He waits all year to get presents since his birthday is so close to Christmas.
We made Christmas cards that were our gifts to Jesus. Here is Noah, he had a great time!

My brother and his family came on Christmas day and we always do Dirty Santa. My nephew is the proud owner of a lovely elf hat! I don't think he reads my blog or even knows I have one! Ha!

Here is Eli with the other half of my nephew's gift. It was a lovely Reindeer tie that Eli stole from him. He thought that was pretty funny!

All in all it was a very nice Christmas and I promise, my next post will be back to crazy quilting!

Merry Christmas!

So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and the line of David. He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests."

May you have a Merry Christmas,

Some more Retreat Pictures!

I am not much of a picture taker, but this year at the retreat, I really tried to make an effort to take more pictures! I would sneak into the classrooms and take pictures of things people were working on. This is a cute little bumble bee that J. Marsha Michler taught. I can't remember who stitched this (or the following spider) so if you read this, please let me know who you are!

Here is a cute little spider that J. Marsha Michler also taught. He is almost a little too real!

Here is a beautiful paisley from the paisley class that Carole Samples taught. Again, could you leave me a comment if you are the one who stitched this?

Now, I do know who this is! This is Jane and she was very excited to be at the retreat this year! She was always in the first seat next to Carole Samples! I'll post more pictures as I get to it!
Talk to you later,
