This Sunday marks the first day of Advent which means Christmas is just around the corner. Things may appear quiet, but I’ve been hard at work. I still have a few Advent preparations to finish and many Christmas presents to make for the Handmade Christmas Challenge. In the last couple weeks there has been a lot of knitting and sewing around here. But the more I accomplish, the most it seems there is to do… perhaps because I keep on adding things to my to-do list.
Once Advent begins I will start sharing with you some of the Christmas gifts that I’ve made. Please, don’t get the impression that all my gifts will be handmade. I don’t think I have the time or talent to write books or make movies, but dishcloths I can definitely make. So keep posted.
If you are thinking of celebrating the feast of St. Nicholas (December 6th) here are a few more ideas, but be sure to check out the St. Nicholas Center. Also, I will be hosting a Jesse Tree link-up starting next week for those of you that would like to share your Jesse Tree set-ups and ideas.
