These little stuffed 'people' are favorites of mine. The little angel was a gift I picked out for my Mom many years ago...at Christmastime. The snowman was on sale at JoAnn's fabric store and I took one look and said, I'll have it! I didn't get my apron sewed yet. (Actually, I had to spend a good part of my afternoon digging out and cleaning my sewing/craft room...you know how easy they get out of control, well, mine anyway. I'm a messy crafter). Its been lots of fun Christmas shopping so far. We have really nice craft stores in our area... with very special stuff. I still have two things on my mind, to make that Christmas apron and to make a 'Button Bracelet'. Oh boy, is it pretty too. I'm off to bed soon, so I just might get an early start to the day tomorrow and craft in the morning. Tomorrow afternoon, I'm invited to a Christmas tea party and I am looking forward to the fun and fellowship so very much. What a blessing the roads are still bare...good driving weather still. Thanks to each of you who've stopped by, and left me such lovely comments. They are very cheering. Wish I had the time to come by and visit you but soon though, I'll be by. I'll post a picture of the apron when I get it done. Even if the first try isn't just what I'd like, not having quite the right fabric. I can hardly believe Christmas Day is almost here..less than a week now! How wonderful that the babe in the manger was real and was God in the flesh, come down from heaven to bring us salvation. I'm so thankful!
