a Christmas pillow & Merry Christmas!!

Hello, my sweet friends!  It was a busy week-end of baking, sewing, a lovely Christmas church service and spending time with family!  This is such a special time of year and I hope to be creating as many memories as I can for my dear ones.   Tonight we'll be having dinner with friends and then going caroling!  I'm excited for the day!


I was able to finish the Christmas pillow I told you about in my last post so I thought I'd share it with you today.  I think it turned out really cute.


My little vintage Elf on the Shelf found a home for it during the night and gathered some candy canes for my kiddos!  ;)


Last spring I made a couple of these pocket pillows but this time I added some sweet lace!  I really love the touch.


As in my Christmas patchwork quilt I used some Cherry Christmas and Alpine Wonderland.  I also love how the basics and florals of The Simple Life and Lecien compliments the sweet Christmas fabrics!


Yesterday when we were at church my Bishop told us about a wonderful Christmas message about the true meaning of Christmas.  It is so easy to get sidetracked with the business of the holiday season and forget.  I know I need to stop and ponder more often like a child of what the true meaning is.  I thought I'd share the little video as it really is touching.


I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas as...


Hugs,
