even though the weather outside doesn’t feel like it, Christmas will soon be here! The temperature on my back porch is 75, and it was almost that high yesterday. I have made a few things for the grandchildren who live near here. Truman and Boyd like to do artwork, so I made them ArtBooks with white and colored cardstock pages for them to do their drawing, and ornaments for their tree.
For the girls, I made a crocheted hat for Ella, knit a red cape with hood and muff for Iris’s American Girl doll, and for Mae, I made a soft rag doll, small pocketbook with cat, and ornaments for all of them as well, including one of “MO” Carol’s Australian Shepherd that Mae loves to play with. I don’t think any of them will be looking at the blog, so felt free to publish these. For the out-of-town grand’s, I cut back on mailing this year, and sent only ornaments that would fit in an envelope.
And I received a nice surprise today, a red poinsettia from one of my Sunday School classmates, Barbara Askew. It isbeautiful, and thanks, Barbara. If I don’t see you again before Christmas Day, hope it is a merry, happy day, as we celebrate the birth of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
See you soon. Thanks for popping in today.
