It's coming

Christmas Time Is Coming! I got my sweet advent calendar out that I made a few years ago.... Hung it on the wall and filled it will chocolate candy.

This is the advent calendar from the 'Bareroots' pattern. It is just adorable. I love it so much.

I might need to make another one day, seeing how I have two children and they will both want one for their children one day.

I've only started decorating for the Christmas season, but I had to get this hung before the first of December so it was one of the first to go up.

My little guy helped me fill it with yummy chocolates!

Have a wonderful and yummy Thanksgiving! I'll be studying for a test I have next week and hoping throwing some stitching in there in between. :o)

You can also it this pattern at Quilting Adventures!
