Here Comes Santa Claus

December 24, 2020

Good morning.  It's early, not quite 6:30 a.m.  Today will be cloudy with possible rain, and temps in the low fifties.  Pogo has been trying to wake me.  Pretty soon I'll go to the kitchen and make us some breakfast.  

Sad to say, one of the new dwarfs moved out yesterday.  It seems his father is sick and he needs to go take care of him.  We wish him well, and his father a speedy healing.

This morning on the Create TV channel, they are making a windchime, using pieces of driftwood , beads, wire and bells.  It's quite easy, and rather pretty to look at.  When you hang these in your trees, it is said that fairies climb up them at night and sprinkle love in your trees.  Hmm, that's a lovely thought.

Last night, I dug out some "Slate" yarn and started a new pocket wrap.  I use safety pins to mark my rows, and I place a pin every twenty rows.  

 I wrote the pattern down in case anyone would like to try making a pocket wrap.  The length (number of rows) and amount of yarn will depend on how long you make your wrap.  I suggest that once you reach one hundred rows, measure your wrap to yourself.   Have fun with it.  If you try it and need help, just let me know.

Do you remember how exciting Christmas Eve was when you were a child?  Did you ever spend hours sitting by your bedroom window watching to catch a glimpse of Santa Claus and his reindeer?  Or maybe you sat out on the door steps to watch for them?  Somehow, we always seemed to fall asleep just before Santa Claus got to our house.  (image borrowed from the web)

Let's all be children again and Believe.  

Hugs, Edna B.

Oh, perhaps i could try your wrap shawl, it is a very easy pattern. But first have to finish what I am knitting now.

Oh yes, waiting for Santa Claus is always wonderful. Doesn;t matter very much is you are child or grown up. It is the most fantastic thing to be able to be a child again in our grown up lives for a moment every now and then.

Have a wonderful Christmas Eve and Christmas day tomorrow!
Christmas hugs to you and a Christmas cuddle to Pogo.

Yes, Edna, we should all try to never stop believing in Santa Claus and everything. Merry Christmas to you and Pogo and hope that you have many wonderful surprises, as you deserve for being such a nice person.
