Wonderful Time of the Year

I love getting ready for Christmas and can’t wait for all the excitement.  I don’t know what you do for Christmas, but ours was getting so “Predictable”.  With that said, I am bringing in some of my childhood get togethers and bring a new twist.  Normally it is dinner, open gifts, and visiting.  This year the games and dominoes are being dusted off, and we are having an ugly sweater contest.  Hubby isn’t sure about it.  He likes his “man cave” alone.  It will be good.

I have also been making little stockings for everyone.  One of the gifts we give the kids are gift cards and they are so boring to wrap, so they will be given in stockings.  I will hang them all on the wall above the sofa and see if anyone notices they have names on them.  This is a sample of the stockings.IMG_20181212_144921122_TOP I am also making some of these cute “Lolly pops”.  When I went to quilt club Monday night we had a Christmas dinner and these were the door prizes.  I thought they were cute and plan on stealing their idea.  The stocking came from them also only the silverware was in it.  So cute.  IMG_20181212_144928396_TOP

On the subject of Quilt guild Christmas, I worked for several hours on a cake to take.  As I was walking in a clutzy Jackie(me) dropped the box it was in and cake plate shattered.  Cake ended up in trash.  I felt so bad and angry with myself.  I will make another one for the Holidays..  Maybe Clutzy me will stay away.IMG_20181210_115314247Before leaving home.

Oh well such is life.  Hope everyone has  a good day.

  1. Oh the cake was so pretty! I’m sorry you lost your cake plate, too. I think I would have cried. Your Christmas ideas are great, and it looks like you went on to have a lovely party time.
