Preparing for Christmas

Decorating for Christmas is not a painful task for me.....

Believe... This is one of my Christmas cards this year when I look into my life; I have many reasons to believe...........I believe in Angels... and there are many who touch my life everyday...
These angels on the side of the hearth, I made a few years ago and look forward to displaying them every Christmas. The chair awaits me with another "lap project" and at this time of the year the pleasure of doing lap work is enhanced by watching a Christmas Special on TV....

the tree ornaments are simple .........

And this year, because of Miss Émilie (1 Year old) the ornaments on the bottom are all unbreakable.
But not only am I preparing for Christmas.. I am stocking up for the winter..my order from Cotton Charms arrived today, putting into place the ideas I have in my head for upcoming projects.....


  1. Well, I love it all. Look at the beautiful tree and that Cotton Charms loot. Thanks for your buddy comment. Emilie is a real doll, I bet she brings you much joy.

  2. Oh, Joan! Your decorations are beautiful! I hope you can show us a close-up of your angels. And, surely Sweet Little Emilie wouldn't bother your ornaments -- would she? Yeah -- your fabric arrived--can't wait to see what you make with it!

  3. I spy a Miss Rosie pattern in the pile. You are bound to make a good quilt!

  4. Love your tree...that's quite a wonderful stash from Cotton Charm...it's always fun to get a package from Kelly!
