Happy Yuletide

I would like to thank everyone who participated in my Fanciful Utility 12 Days of Christmas Give Away. I hope everyone found it to be festive fun over the last two weeks. 

We are well into our Yuletide locally. Friday night was our annual Celtic Ceildih, a beautiful instrumental concert in honor of the area’s deep Scottish roots. Saturday held our Hometown Holidays where residents pack the village proper for a parade, tree lighting, meeting Santa, decorating cookies, special breakfast, lunch and dinner, and shopping at both shops and craft sales. Some years the village is blanketed in snow and frigid, yet filled with people holding their hot potatoes to keep warm. (this year mother nature offered a soggy, grey day.)

We are hoping to get our tree up and decorated this evening. I may have to make a new tree skirt because I forgot to pick up more linen tablecloths this summer at yard sales. (there really is logic in there.) 

???????????????????????????????I still have several items in my Etsy store that will make lovely gifts. There are an assortment of needle-books including smaller round ones that fit nicely into sewing boxes and shaped silk ones. There are a few sewing balls and a couple sewing boxes. 

???????????????????????????????I also added a couple special items including a doll’s straw bonnet. This bonnet is made from tiny straw plait hand sewn the same way I make full size straw bonnets. 

I would like to see any orders meant for Christmas be made this week. This way I can get them out by Friday to safely reach their destination on time. (I do send packages Priority Mail with insurance. But, I just get too nervous about packages getting detoured.)
