Getting more gifts done

Remember the picture of Dad with his deer?
Well one brother wanted a blanket done with his picture on it to give to him.
Three of us will split the cost

So I ordered it and a coffee cup to match
I was blown away by the crispness of the image on the sherpa blanket.

I hope Dad approves on Christmas day!

On the eleventh day of Christmas my true love gave to me....

Another beautiful tin
Not sure where he found all these
But I Love them
To hold supplies in my sewing room 
I dont mind if they have a Christmas print on them.....helps me to keep Christ in my life year long

This one holds a lot
A 4pk of russel stover
Mini chocolate covered cherries one of my favs

A Christmas truck box of chocolates 
Oh he really outdid himself this time

And two million dollars in chocolate
The truck drivers at work will be so happy to get chocolate 
I will be happy it is not all on my hips
Tomorrow is day 12....

We will see......
All I want for Christmas this year is the pedal for the new free sewing machine I got
And have it gone through at the spa to make sure she is running good

A past boss was cleaning her cellar and claims the machine wasnt used much which I believe. Only problem she didnt know where the foot pedal was. I am hoping they can get one for me
It looks in good shape and will make a nice spare 

Are you having fun this Christmas?

I got my own holiday mailbox 
And the flag was up

Some kisses and m and m's

It is fun to see what the next day brings
