CHRISTMAS IS COMING




I finished my Christmas table square to go over my round gold Christmas tablecloth and wanted to share it with you. The Christmas stitcheries I used are from Gail Pan's BOM and are free on her blog site. Thank you Gail for your kindness with the free designs. The fabrics I used are Nancy Halverson's Christmas range of fabric from a couple of years' ago. I can't believe it is just 3 months to Christmas now! I started my Christmas shopping with a purchase for my granddaughter. Her brother or sister will be born within the next couple of weeks. I hope and pray that all will go well for the family.


I have also been adding a few more rows to my 2ply triangular lace SHAWL. I am knitting it on a long circular needle and it takes me more than 10 minutes to achieve one row. It started off as a point with 5 stitches and now has hundreds of stitches up the top. Will give you a sneek peek too!! It is knitted in lilac 50/50 merino/silk yarn in Jaggerspun yarn (USA made yarn). It is so lovely and soft to touch, a luxury yarn.


That's all the crafty news I have for you now. God bless you all and see ya soon!!

The Christmas quilt is just lovely- you have done a wonderful job! And as for that beautiful shawl....it would take me a lot longer than 10 minutes per row....more like half an hour. I really admire your patience!

It's just lovely - and I too love that you changed the last block to faith. It's fundamental to Christmas. :-)
