Christmas Doings

When I saw the December design that Sylvia created for the cross-stitch sal I couldn't have been more pleased.  And when I went to the comment section of the post and read what the other stitchers said, I saw that I was not alone.  Slyvia designed the perfect ending for the project.

I don't know if she plans to start another sal for the new year.  I hope so.  Now I need to get my project in a frame so that it doesn't get lost and forgotten.

In yesterday's mail I received my third envelope of 5 inch squares from Benartex, and they are so pretty.  They are from the Mayfair collection by Michelle D'Amore.  Very romantic and elegant.

Yesterday I made my little pilgrimage to the LaSallette Shrine and enjoyed it very much. I attended a concert where we sang along with Father Pat, liked the music so much I bought his CD, petted the little donkey, Clopper, who is guarding the stable, and ooh'd and aah'd when the lights went on.   This picture shows the lights reflecting in the pond that circles what's called the Rosary Bridge. 

 All of the lights on the tree in the middle are shaped as doves. 

Now I'm off to another of my Christmas doings.  The local public high school has a two day craft fair each year to benefit the scholarship fund.  The auditorium has something like 200  crafters selling their stuff, so I'm going to see what they've got.  It's usually interesting and fun. 

God Bless You.

Oooo, Christmas lights. I love Christmas light displays. Our city puts up lighted tinsel ornaments along our main street. I usually get a giddy feeling when I first spot them!
