Christmas Stars

I've been a busy little seamstress! Here's the new snuggle quilt I made for my mama, called Christmas Stars. It looks so festive draped over her bed.  A patchwork Christmas stocking made a nice door decoration.   
 
Sewing isn't the only needlework I enjoy. My crochet hook has been flying through a couple of scarves, a vest, and now I'm working on a cardigan. I learned a couple of new stitches, too.  Did I mention there was a yarn sale last weekend?
 
 
The only problem is with all that crochet and online Christmas shopping, my right index finger is getting a workout!  I need some Aleve for the joint pain...or some spiked eggnog could do the trick. 

 
Gifts of time and love are surely the basic ingredients of a truly merry Christmas. ~Peg Bracken
