Merry Christmas!

I wish you a joyous Christmas filled with family, friends, peace, beauty and love.

To those of you still sewing and crafting into the wee hours of these last few nights to finish those handmade gifts; Let the thread spools spin and the glitter fly! Just don't forget to stop for a cookie break now and then.

**I find that I'm now one of those working up to the last minute. After seeing Twyla's post yesterday over at Two Crazy Crafters, (I hope I win!) I went looking for a slipper pattern that was close to the pair she made for her give away. There are so many wonderful free patterns out there that it wasn't too long before I found just the thing. So if I could find some worsted weight yarn in my stash, I would try to make a pair for my hubby. This morning I went digging into my yarn bin and was surprised to find I had exactly what I needed. So the first slipper is on the knitting needles. At least I don't feel any pressure about finishing on time as hubby will understand.

Update: December 23rd... One slipper complete despite hubby being home from work today. Now that he's going off to bed, I'll get started on the second one. I am trying to surprise him with these.

Hi Linda~
I just wanted to tell you how much I love your tag from the Peppermint Swap. I keep pulling it out to look at it. The papers you chose and the addition of the sweet blue bell, glittery snow and the punched greenery were the perfect touches! I love this swap group..I feel like I have a nation-wide group of friends!
Merry Christmas to you and your family and I'm sure we'll swap togethr in 2011!
