Counting down...

Congratulations to Joyce Spaulding - you're the winner this week of the Pheasant Feathers booklet and Pheasant Hill mini charm pack. Please be patient as the pattern won't go to the editors next week. We'll send it out as soon as Robert prints it.

I'm making my lists and checking them a dozen times. I enjoy wandering through the stores to see what's new and collecting small gifts for the stockings, but a little of the holiday crush goes a long way for me. Much of my Christmas shopping is done online since we live far away from major shopping areas. Besides, many of the items requested this year are easily found on Amazon or ebay. Why spend the time and money to hunt for it when it practically jumps out at you from your computer screen yelling, Buy Me! Buy Me!

The most fun shopping, of course, is for the grandkids. Aleece is into collecting recipes - actually, she loves to copy recipes onto cute recipe cards. It's been amazing to see how much her handwriting has improved since she's found something to write that she's interested in. I'm stocking up on recipe cards, stickers, a recipe book with sleeves and an assortment of cool pencils. She also asked for her own paper punch and a mini stapler - too funny! Any other suggestions?

Delainey is pretty easy, anything to do with dance is on her list - leotards, a sweat suit to wear to dance, leg warmers, etc. She's our little performer, for sure. Bronson, with limited mobility, is always a challenge, but a new Matchbox track that mounts on the wall looks like it might just be the perfect solution. Cooper at 12 is way past the toy stage. He just wants really cool shoes. Santa might have to grant that wish. The kids/grankids will all come to stay the night on Dec. 22nd with brunch and gifts in our p.j.'s the next morning. It feels just like Christmas past when they were all little. I love it!

What's on your Christmas wish list? If KT books, patterns and fabrics are on your list, stay tuned. Each Monday between today - Dec. 3rd - and Dec.17th, we'll be offering a KT Blog special. Just send a stamped, self addressed envelope in the size indicated and cash for the items that week and we'll make your holiday wishes come true!
