Merry Christmas to you all!!
I’m getting all nostalgic with you and sharing my Christmas circa 1967. I’d have been two. This was what was in my Christmas stocking.
Notice my banana is even a little brown. HA!!
The ball of tin foil is for sure a popcorn ball. They were a tradition then…and still are with mine to this very day. I make them for both Christmas and Thanksgiving.
I don’t really remember getting gifts in my stocking. It was mostly fruit and nuts…and the popcorn ball…maybe a few pieces of candy.
It’s a low-key day here. The families that live in town are all over to my house today. We do something super simple. We don’t do a huge fancy meal…although we have extra hams here, so we are having ham and the fixings.
I’m sure the day will include some naps (not for me. I’m not a napper) and board games.
I want to extend a big thanks to the many of you who sent me a Christmas card. It is so appreciated. One of the kids was home and asked how I had such a big stack of Christmas cards. I smiled and said blog readers have been sharing Christmas wishes. They couldn’t believe it. Thank you.
I know Christmas can be a time of so many different emotions. Please know I have a special place in my heart for people whose Christmas wasn’t the day they wished for. For years and years…that was me. Christmas was a sad time. I’m happy to say that I’ve finally found a place of peace and I wish that for you. Hang in there…
I’m taking the evening off and there won’t be a blog post. Sorry.
If you have extra time to kill today or over the next bit of time, I did update the blog and added a page to document the quilts I made in 2015. You can find them HERE. I also did the quilts of 2016. You can find them HERE. I’ve started to work on the quilts of 2022…but am missing 2017 and 2018 so I hope to go back and do them as well. It seems there is always something that needs doing!!
I had a blog reader ask me if I could go back and list all of the quilts that I’ve made. The listing is mostly already there minus the years 2017, 2018, and now 2022. You can find them anytime if you go to the tabs at the top of the page and click the one that says QUILTS.
With that, I’m off to cross-stitch. I’ll be back Monday morning with a What I’m Working on post…Merry Christmas!!
