Christmas is coming....



The morning shadows are telling me that its not too early to start or in this case, finish some projects for Christmas.  Last year I started this advent project but just didn't get it done in time.  So once again, I am working on the 24 little felt packages that will be strung together with red and white check ribbon or perhaps some "God Jul" cotton trim.   With each package I embroider, I think about what sort of little gift to put in it.    The sunshine felt good this morning as I sat on the porch, drinking my coffee and eating my pulla.   A nice glass of Elderberry juice for health before the coffee !

I think I better begin doing some Christmas preparations, too....It's not at all too early.

BTW, your word verification is very difficult for my 67 year old eyes...Do you need this if you also moderate the comments?

I can't even think about Christmas yet, but you're not the first person I know to be planning for it already!

What kind of gifts will you put in those lovely felt packages? Are they for the grandchildren?
