Nativity and Fabric

Terry and Emily came up today to help us set up the Nativity our church puts out every year.  We have put it up for many years.  It is an annual event for us.  It was cold today but not windy or snowing.  We have set it up the day after Thanksgiving in some really nasty weather and a few nice weather times too.  This is the roof of the building Emily is holding.

Here Terry and Emily are waiting for hubby to get things ready.

Hubby fixing Baby Jesus in his bed.

Terry is shaking out the straw for the manger.

Putting things in place.

The workers after it was finished.

Terry also helped me pick out the fabric for her next sew along which will start in Jan.  She was also nice enough to cut all my squares for me.  I pressed the fabric and she cut it.  Now when Jan. comes I will be ready.  She has such good color sense and I love what she picked out.  Thanks again so much Terry.

Flowers and Santa

Here are my White and my yellow Christmas Cactus.

Here is the Santa I made from a panel and it is for Terry.  I have mine yet to make.  I bought them many years ago but never got them made.

Getting Things Done

Sorry no pictures today.  I finished my Christmas sewing yesterday and today I made out my Christmas cards.  They are ready to mail or add to the gift bags that will hold my Friendship breads and hand made ornament.  I just need to wrap or bag the gifts and buy any fresh foods that we will give.  Glad I am ahead of the game.  Now I will not have to rush before Christmas and I can enjoy the season.

Our First Snow

Here are 2 pictures of our first snow of the season.  We only got about an inch and it probably will not last long if the sun comes out today.

Wall Hanging

I did this wall hanging for a friend.  I am sure she will like it.  Glad to have it finished.  Only one more sewing project for Christmas and I will be done with Christmas gifts.

This and That

These are Callie's spring kittens.  They are almost fully grown.  They were trying to get a drink from the frozen water in the birdbath.  All the neighborhood cats drink from it.

Trees and Kittens

These are the trees in front of the Rec. Center.  I started walking again Fri. after a long time of doing nothing in the way of exercise.

New neighbors.  Callie who drinks in my bird bath has 2 new kittens and they are under the new barn. 

 Callie is sitting watching them.  It is hard to see her in the fallen leaves.  They are so cute.
