What joy the gospel gives me. I can approach the throne of God with confidence, not because I've done a good job at my spiritual duties, but because I'm clothed in the righteousness of Jesus Christ. ~ C.J. Mahaney

Fields of Snow

First the good news.  There will be a give-away this Christmas.  Now the bad news.  It's not finished yet.

I just didn't start it early enough to get it finished for a drawing on Thanksgiving.  In fact, I just started it yesterday!  I think you'll like it though.  If you've known me a while, you won't be surprised to discover that there is a snowman involved in this little project.

It started while I was at the beach a couple weeks ago.  I found this adorable itty-bitty stacking salt and pepper shaker set at my favorite gift shop and knew I had to grab it up for one of you.  The snowman is the salt shaker; his hat is the pepper shaker.  It was love at first sight.  Then I found this little homespun tea towel to coordinate.

Last night I pulled some fun prints and designed a simple patchwork table runner to complete the give-away.  It will be finished at each end with some hand embroidery before I hand quilt and bind it.  I wanted to give you a sneak peek so you'd have a general idea, but the finished product will remain a mystery a few more days.

Sorry.  Blame my crazy-busy life right now.

How about I draw early next week?  To enter, just leave a comment here or on FB or email me.  Tell me your favorite memory or aspect of the Christmas season--really anything you want.  Don't worry, you won't be graded.  Just share your heart.

My favorite part about the Christmas season is sipping hot cranberry citrus apple cider with you in the living room looking at the lit Christmas tree before bed.

Don't enter me in the drawing since Joy won last year, but I want to chime in anyway! The prize looks lovely and I think you are an amazing lady to offer it to your reading audience:)

My favorite part about Christmas is meditating on the repercussions of the "Word becoming flesh and dwelling among us." That GOD would come to earth for our sins, be born in a humble stable, and live out His earthly life in holiness and righteousness just blows me away. It's such a hope-filled reminder. I'm so thankful!

Love you, friend,

There are many memories, but one that I'm sure my brothers would agree with is my Mom's making us Hungarian Horeshoe Cookies. They take at least 2 days to make...everything is homemade so it takes the dough a couple of days to rise. They are soooo good hot out of the oven and even when they are not so hot. Still to this day, we usually ask her to make them at Christmas time. She always made them for us during that time. Shanda
