Knit one, sew one, knit two........

click,  click......knit, knit........in the kitchen it's embroidery and hand sewing....but in the front room it's knitting...if I go down the hallway to my sewing room I make all the teddy bear body parts, or doll heads and bodies.......then I take them to the kitchen for eyes and stuffing. Hmmmm.....does it sound like I am going in circles? My days go by very quickly and yes it seems like I never stop, but I love Christmas! In fact I embrace it, the gift giving, from teddy bears and dolls to mittens and scarves......helping others to prepare or baking food gifts.....this is my time with the children and friends and family....it's about taking time to read a well loved book or two, maybe help out with the food bank, build a gingerbread house or ten.....lol. This is the time to spend with my loved ones and share my memories from growing up and Christmas past. The grandchildren love to play twister, charades and play outside in the snow, happy to come inside for hot chocolate with homemade marshmallows on top. What do you do that makes your holiday special?


 I would love to hear all about your Christmas traditions and what you plan to do for the holidays!
Love and kindness and the making of time for others just makes me happy, what makes you happy or perhaps crazy at this time of year..........
