DAY 3 of our T'was the night Holiday Gift Giving ideas.

Teresa wowed us yesterday with her beautiful 
pin cushion and thread catcher....
A beautiful gift anyone would love...

We are all familiar with T'was the night before Christmas..
Wellll, I came up with my own version to describe our FESTIVE HOLIDAY
Blog hop- and  I am no poet, but sometimes the words just fill my page..
( your screen) wink..

T'was the night...

T'was the night before posting we're told it's a gift
a holiday present that has to conjure a lift...
It has to be made within hours, something so sweet
a pleasure to masses that has meaning so deep..

So if you can think of a gift or a something to stitch
and you know it will take only hours to enrich..
then join us this season with hearts content
You know your time will be so well spent......

I could not imagine letting the year end without a holiday blog hop....
suggested a- Holiday Season Hop and loved T'was the night...
so we went from there...

I love this time of year, I have noted many hearts swell
at the memories, I would love to create even more for you all..

Here is some of our post to describe what will be unfolding
these next couple of weeks...

WElllllllll YOU are all so imaginative, talented, filled with inspiration..
so here is your opportunity to share something CHRISTMACY,
that could be small gifts that can made within hours...not days...
that YOU can share with us all..

Some suggestions, embroidery, towels, cards, paper piecing,
small wall hanging, cookie jars, pajama bottoms,
jewels, fobs wine bottle jackets, dolls, pin cushions....

Anything that would make for great christmas gifts
that tells someone YOU CARE...

Everyone in our hop has received a 
 HOMEMADE gift from the person above them 
on the schedule. 

On the day of their show and tell...They will highlight the gift
they received and what
project ( s)  they made for Christmas and Holiday related...

Each day a new list of ladies, filled with tenderness and heart..
Be sure to let them know your heart was touched too...
And those in receipt..be sure to reply...they want to know
you did indeed see THEM....
remember 7.2 minutes each day to accomplish this...

You did well today to continue the HOLIDAY inspiration...
Some just made me chuckle, others tear.....however a great showing
today ladies...THANK YOU...

This lady showed us what to do with some SEASONAL fabric
and some ruffles...how can you possibly go wrong with RUFFLES.?
Welll had she included gingham I would have rocked right off my rocker...lol
Such lovely ideas today....

 Pinterest T'was the night

Kenny G was one of the very first concerts I ever went too
where my eyes were completely wet from beginning to end...
He knows how to play like no other....
he can touch your soul with every note...

I hope you play him and sit still and drink your morning brew
and be so thankful for wellllllll

  5. Oh yes...many many wonderful ideas out there. A few hours here and there, will have my family and friends thinking I've slaved away on homemade gifts for weeks and weeks (says Mrs. Grinch gleefully rubbing her hands together!!). Today is like a baseball hit out of the park!

  6. Some really great stuff today. That retro apron is calling to me! Love Kenny G. His music is a Christmas staple here. Have a lovely day!

  7. Just finished hopping this morning! I have been away to a 3 day sew-in so behind for the swap... but catching up this morning. So many inspiring projects! One grinch made me spend some money this am.. too early to spend moo-lah but had to have it! ha! It is all Joan's fault! I am telling Santa! :)

  8. Rosemary B here:
    This hop is so adorable. I will find time to look at each days participants later.
    My cell phone gets wifi so I can look at everything while I am at the dentist with mom getting her last three teeth pulled (it is time)
    and the adventures that follow (new bottom denture) and then the podiatrist, and the retina specialist.
    I wish someone would kidnap me and put my in sewing jail
    This hop is just absolutely the cutest idea ever.
    I will send you a proper email later Gotta run
    I love all of you hooping ladies and you Missie Samm

    always, Rosemary B

You are just treasured by me and many others, hope you know that. xx ~Cori

  27. Such fun ideas today. Am I the only one starting at the end of the list of the day and going up so I can see what they sent to others? That just makes sense to me...lol I'm always a little backwards and sideways. You can never go wrong with an apron. Love it.

  28. That apron is great. Trying to think what I want to make out of that fabric :). Fun projects today! Okay, I need to do what Carla does & go backwards = great idea.

  29. These small gifts were such a good idea! Thanks Marlene and Samm! PLUS, My youngest daughter took me to see Kenny G in Concert 3 Christmas's ago! He was Wonderful...so at ease with the audience and played all his hits plus an hour of Christmas music. He has been a favorite of mine since he came on the scene.
