Santa arrives!

Today I am going to the airport to pick up our parents for 10 days of holiday fun. They are escaping a once in a lifetime snowstorm that is about to hit the Eastern coast-and Virginia seems to be right in the midde of the mess. I think it's funny that they are coming to Wisconsin to get away from snow in Virginia. I have a Santa hat for each of them waiting in the car so we will get into the spirit of the season immediately.

At home I am decorating with hand stitched items where ever I can. Over the years we have stitched up a delightful collection of Santa Claus designs-everything from Kris Kringle to the Jolly Old Man himself on wall-hangings, pillows and quilts. This year seems to be the year of red at my house-my tree is predominantly red and I have 3 Christmas quilts that have red as a base color laying on the beds. Got to love RED!

I hope this weekend before the Holidays get here is a good one for each of you. Don't forget to slow down and try not to get too crazy with all the lists and "must-do's". Remember that enjoying the journey to Bethlehem is part of the delight of the season.

  1. Well it would have been nice if your parents invited me along, grin. Here is western NC foothills (Hendersonville) I got about 12 inches of the stuff, nothing is moving, we are not use to getting the white stuff, especially this much! At least we didn't lose power! Hope your parents have a wonderful Christmas with you and your family. BarbM
