Busy at the North Pole

I am anxious for Christmas. I always decorate like crazy and since this will be our first Christmas in our new home...well...I've got a lot of work to do so I am starting now. It helps that our temperatures have been in the minus zone for about a week. 

Three tear drop wreaths for the backside of our house...which is where our garage is so we will see these lovely wreaths every time we come home.

My new cutting table is wonderful! I love this great work area.

Working away on the Nordic Advent Calendar. I have all the little cookie-like ornaments that hang around the house to complete...25 of them.

My Wales Santa in progress.

Tomorrow is Breakfast Club. 
Here is the quilt pattern we are making.
 I have no idea what fabrics I am going to use...but of course it will be batiks.

And just a quick comment about Paris. My friends and their families are all safe. It is such a frightening it still seems to be ongoing. Before I launch into a great political discussion I will just close by saying my heart aches for the French and I pray the leaders of the world tackle this escalating problem of Islamic extremism.

Nothing like cold weather to put one in a Christmas mood... beautiful door decorations and I can't wait to see all the goodies on the advent calendar. I need to look into doing one of these for me. I thought of you after the events in Paris and my heart goes out to them. I wish we had a stronger response to Islamic terrorism because it isn't going away on its own. hugs!
