24 – Advent & How many days is it ’til Christmas?
December 1, 2010 § 4 Comments
A couple of years ago I had this grand idea that I would make an advent calendar*. It was going to be miniature knitted hats & mittens & stockings. It never became a reality that year. And so I did a bloggy count down to Christmas instead. I’m sorry to say that I still haven’t made an advent calendar. The yarn is still in it’s basket. But I think I may make a real hat, instead of a mini hat, out of the red yarn. I’m feeling the need for a red hat.
So, let’s start counting again. Only 24 more days till Christmas! This is our house. We do a little decorating at a time. So far, we have lights on the house. I want to slow down and enjoy the Christmas season. So many things seem to rush by and then vanish. I need the spirit of Christmas to sink in a little. Stay a little while. I need to escape the shopping frenzy. And I love handmade gifts.
Maybe some day I will make an advent calendar.
*Take a look at some of these Advent Calendars! I’m torn between something red & white (because I LOVE red & white when decorating for Christmas) or something with all of the leftover sock yarn. Maybe a string of mini socks? Maybe both?
