Here's a close up of the candy cane. It's simply rick-rack wrapped on itself. Can't tell you the number of ladies who asked me at demo days to show them how to do that. It's an old technique, something I remember even as a child.
Here is a set of onesies, requested by Jamie for their second child, Isabella born in October. Amy went to visit in early November and graciously delivered them for us. (Mostly created with fabric paint and Cricut stencilling. The birthday candle is raw edge applique.)
I know this was short but I will cut off here. My lasagne noodles are calling. :)
Our Christmas prayers for Dave, Jack & Betty, David-B & familly, John and for all those who are suffering the pain of separation in this holy season. Special prayers of thanksgiving for my cousin Bailee and Nathan who walked away from a serious car accident yesterday, unscathed. Thank you Lord.
In closing I want to share something beautiful from the devotional I read each day. I want to dedicate it to the loving memory of Larry, my Uncle Bob, Brenda and Bonnie -- and always my beloved Ashley.
Death does hide,
But not divide;
You are but on Christ's other side.
You are with Christ, and Christ with me;
In Christ united still are we.
No matter how many times I read this I can't do it without tears. With love and wishes for a blessed Christmas. Love, J
