Christmas Gifts.....

I realized it still has the chalk marks but I wanted to share a Christmas gift for my Mom.  It was super easy.  We're tucked in for the weekend.  A snowstorm is brewing outside with possibilities of fifteen inches of snow. Feels good.  The Christmas lights a twinkling and there's coffee in the cups.

My Office Girls Christmas party was so much fun.  I really nice girl got my gift. Good friends, Good Food, Good Company.... Chelsey is through with finals and Eric is gearing up for them.

We've invited friends over for supper tonight.  Snow is a fact of life in the U.P., so barring electrical outages, I'm hoping we still get together.  Plans for today--- a date with the treadmill...I have this bucket list thing about running in ONE 5k run in my lifetime... So Don has me in training.  Wrapping presents and cleaning my sewing room.  Oh -- and I'm kicking around making an ironing board cover.  I'll take before and after photos.......

Free "XM" radio sort of... go to http://www.klove.com/ and click on the Christmas link.... It's echos through our house pretty much the entire time we're home.  I just love the sounds of this season.

Chelsey goes to school right on Lake Superior so is Incredibly snowed in with lake effect snow...

But it does feel like Christmas......

Gratitudes:
Christmas Candles
Mittens
Plaid Napkins ... the little things....

I love the gift you made for your mother.
Do love the sounds of the seasons. I keep Sirius/XM playing all day long in the sewing room. Love listening to the oldies Christmas songs....back when no one was afraid to mention the Name of Christ in their songs.

Stay nice and warm all snuggled together. I'm only hoping for snow at this point. Very cold temps. coming for next...too cold for snow. I'll just be happy if we get some of the white stuff for Christmas.
Still plugging away on Christmas presents.
Christmas blessings,
Sue

Such a pretty wool mat. Did you give it to your mother already? Just wondered because you are showing it on your blog.
This is the time of year that your area of the country gets so much snow. Pretty for Christmas. We haven't had a white Christmas in over thirty years.

So cute! I love this little mat. The snow is falling fast and furious right now and I am definitely snowed in too. Going to work in tree decorating :o)

Very nice tablerunner!

We're expected to get this storm today. It'll be a good day to stay inside and sew :D

Oh you KNOW I love that runner . . . . wool is just delicious in all its forms *s*

Hopefully we will be getting some snow here soon. I'm dreaming of a white Christmas!

Crazy weather all over, we had a lake effect snow storm last week, dumped a foot of snow on our area. Then the rain came washed all the snow away, now we are getting lake effect again possibly 2' over the next couple of days.

Your mother is going to love that wonderful table runner, that's beautiful!

Better to hunker down in your easy chair, blankey over your legs, and craft away...
Blessings,
Mel
