Merry Christmas

Here is my Sampler Snowman, by Homespun Elegance, all stitched up. I've since finished him into a little wall hanging, and now he's hanging over my window on an old curtain rod hook. I took down the curtains in my family room years ago, but left the hooks intact so that I have a place to hang all my seasonal decorations. All the hooks are full this time of year!

This week is going too quickly. Today I made spiced pecans to give to neighbors and the mailman. They are an old holiday stand-by I've been making for 9 years now (recipe from Family Fun here). So yummy! I have a tiny bit of handsewing to finish up on some fabric candy canes. The candy canes will embellish the containers that will hold the pecans. I made sugar cookies today, which my nephews and niece (ages 7, 5, and 3) will come over to decorate on Thursday, after I give them a lunch of Star Wars shaped pancakes. My daughter and I hope to see Tangled tomorrow. On Wednesday we are going to see Mary Poppins on Broadway (except not actually on Broadway). Friday is Christmas Eve! Love this time of year.

Merry Christmas to those who celebrate it. Have a wonderful holiday!

Hi Tracy,
We got your card yesterday and I went right to your blog -- it's great and just the kind of blog I stalk regularly for craft ideas.

Have a great Christmas!

What a good idea to use your curtain hangers for other goodies. Love your snowman!

"Tangled" is on my wish list to see, but I imagine I'll catch it On Demand rather than the theater. I've heard good things about the movie.

Star Wars pancakes -- so cool!!! I bet they'll love them =).
