Merry Christmas Season!

 The big day has come and gone, but for us the Christmas Season 
lasts until Jan.6, the feast of the Epiphany.
So I am wishing you all a very blessed Christmas season!

Prepare the stable of your heart for Christmas

Yesterday my daughters and husband and I went 
into Chicago with the youth group from our parish 
to work in the soup kitchen of the 
Sisters of Charity.
These are Mother Teresa's nuns, 
and the kitchen was opened
by Mother Teresa herself.
(That's my hubby up there on the right.)
I can't tell you what this experience has done for me, 
to take me away from the cares and silly concerns of my everyday life,
and help those who are truly in need.
(Thats one of my daughters cheesing on the left.)
It really put things into perspective and I had the anticipation
of the coming of my Lord Jesus on my mind all day.
I felt so close to Him while I was there, 
and so thankful for everything He has done in my life 
and the wonderful people He has given me to love!
I hope you all have a blessed Christmas! 
I hope you feel the joy of Him in your heart always!
God Bless You
Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas and the most wonderful of Holidays

Angel progress

Her dress is made from an old cotton slip. I am still going to add some wings and some beading on her gown.
Pay no attention to the mess that is my desk! LOL!

Some Christmas sewing

I am making this for my brother Gil.
He LOVES Christmas and begins decorating BEFORE Thanksgiving.
This is going to be a pillow.
It is rectangular. 

It is from a pattern by Bareroots.
I just love Bareroots patterns, don't you?
Hopefully I will have time to snap a picture when it is done and before I give it to him. He always hosts our family get together on Christmas eve. He is a fabulous cook, and we get fed something wonderful every year.
I tell ya, I am the most spoiled little sister in the WORLD! 
My brother Gil always cooks on Christmas eve, and my brother Edward (thats Fr. Edward to you, cuz he's a priest) always cooks on Thanksgiving and Christmas day.
Can you BELIEVE that? 
I NEVER have to do the cookin'!
