We are just minutes away from November! Can you believe it? This year has seemed to fly by and is quickly coming to an end. Wow!! The holidays are upon us. Are you ready? Have you began to make holiday plans?
Thanksgiving is one of my favorite times. Our family usually gathers to have a traditional Thanksgiving meal, turkey and dressing, along with all our favorite side dishes. And in our house, prior to the meal, we all gather around and say something for which we are thankful. It is a sweet time, sometimes funny, sometimes tearful, but it warms my heart! Then we pray and thank the Lord for all the blessings He has so richly given us. Can you tell I love the holidays?
Barely finishing Thanksgiving, we head full speed ahead toward Christmas which is also a favorite holiday of mine. From the shopping to the twinkling Christmas lights, I love it all! I love the look of joy and excitement on the faces of small children. Of course, there are sentimental times as well, thinking of past Christmases with loved ones that are no longer with us. But I think one of the things I love most about the Christmas season is the fact that for me, it is a giving season. I love doing things for others! And embroidering gifts for others is a blessing I enjoy! And I love the touch of class it brings, from FSL ornaments on the tree, stockings to hang, garments to wear, and even decorating the bathroom with festive embroidered towels, just to name a few ideas. And don’t forget the embroidered TP for that hard to buy for friend or relative!
Yes, it is a busy time of year, but it is my goal to create beautiful designs to make your holidays bright!! So, let’s get busy and stitch up some beautiful gifts for family and friends!!
