Christmas is coming.

Getting ready for Christmas... I hung the advent calendar and filled it with candy. I can't wait to get our tree next week and bring out the ornaments. I have been listening to Christmas music since last week. :o)
I finished a very small block of my 'North Pole' quilt. And started working on my next block, but just started. ( pics to come later).
And look what is done.... the puzzle. It was not bad and really fun. I am going to break it a part now and give it to my mom and dad to do. They love puzzles.

Love the advent calendar - I'll be by later to help you eat the candy! hehe. I cannot wait until Saturday when I can pull out all the decorations! That puzzle looks great - when you get it back you ought to frame it:) Have a good Thanksgiving!

Oooohhhhh. An Advent calendar with candy. That would be dangerous in my house! The block for your North Pole quilt is so cute. Can't wait to see more! And congrats on finishing the puzzle. Your parents will enjoy doing it, too!

Your advent calendar does look great! Maybe that will be next on my holiday decorations to make list-for next year!:) I love the puzzle; it would look great framed! The north pole quilt is going to be gorgeous!

Your advent calendar looks fabulous. I made one about 18 years ago for my little darlings. It's looking a bit old and sad now but I've been forbidden to make another because they love it so. I guess they don't want to lose that part of their childhood, which is really sweet doncha think!!?! I'll get it out again this year and fill it with goodies :o), even though they are all a bit old for it now. I even put some in for the older ones (23 & 25) for when they visit too, they love it!!!
Joy :o)

That is a nice puzzle! I will keep folowing you as I am very curious to your welcom to the north pole block ;-). I started it myself, but Santa will change in Sinterklaas, our Dutch old man bringing presents the 5th of december and all his helpers (black)
