Hi, my name is Missy and I am 39 years old and live in Texas. I have only been quilting for one year. I have been married for 17 years and have six cats. The Lord has not blessed us with any children, although I continue to pray every day! I have a few things to share with ya'll today.
Since my Christmas quilt is also what is on my design wall, I am going to share it as part of my party!
I put my green border on it and my husband said it needed to be bigger, so I added a white border. I had to stand on the coffee table to be able to get the whole quilt in the picture! I kind of wish I had done a pieced border instead, like maybe some flying geese, but oh, well.
You have to have a gingerbread house at a party! Here is a gingerbread house I made one Christmas! Do you see my penguin cookie jar? I collect those, and my Christmas sweaters were drying on the chairs in the background. (Are you see the penguin theme? Totally not planned! LOL) I have have a penguin made out of jellied candy on the lawn instead of a snowman.
Of course, we do not want to forget the real reason that we celebrate Christmas. We all know that Jesus was not born in December, but it is the day we have set aside to celebrate His birth.
"8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men."
Have a very merry Christmas!
