Hi There! And welcome to Jo's Annual Advent Calendar Hop! If you wonder what I'm talking about, please head on over to Jo's blog, Serendipitous Stitching. Every day during the Advent season there will be a new blogger who will share with you their favorite Christmas Song, the theme for this year's blog hop, and a picture of something we have made for the season.
I've been assigned day 6 and I'm excited to share with you my favorite project that I finished this year! I waited patiently for the creches to appear in the stores so I could finally display my Mill Hills Nativity. I stitched these pieces on fabric instead of the perforated paper then had them finished into stand ups so I could have another Nativity to showcase (I collect them!)
I love this time of year! (As long as I stay away from the mall...haha). I love decorating for Christmas, and as always, each year there is a debate on how early we can start listening to Christmas Carols. My son thinks we should wait until the week before Christmas, and certainly NOT before Thanksgiving. But....my husband and I could listen to them all year if my son would let us. This year we started the week before Thanksgiving just because! haha I have so many favorite Christmas songs, but I have to say, my absolute favorite is called "Move Me Closer (A Shepherd's Prayer)" by one of my favorite artists, Evie. Here is a link to the song, if you've never heard it before, it's definitely worth a listen!
Move Me Closer
From my family to yours, we wish you a very Merry Christmas and many blessings in the coming New Year!
If you would like to continue the blog hop, the next in line is Mary over at Le Coeur Celtique.
