Sights and Sounds of Christmas

I've been listed in a post over at One More Quilt today called the 12 Days of Christmas.  Frances has listed twelve different blogs to show the ways we are getting ready for Christmas this year.  I hope you will stop by and pay her a visit today. 

I've been listed for all of the outside Christmas lights that we decorate with.  Since my original post, we have put out another string or two around the back of the house so we now have lights completely around the outside.   I listed 8,900 lights when I posted before, but I found out that didn't include the big wreath or the star on the front of the house.  So with the extra lights that we put out back, I imagine we are up to 10,000 now. 
 This is one of my Christmas quilts made from blocks from a Dear Jane Christmas swap a few years ago. 
 This wreath hangs at the top of my stairway.
I've been doing a little sewing and some knitting here.  More on that later. 

Hope you are enjoying this holiday season!!!   Thanks for visiting.

Beautiful post, inside and out! We still need to get our feeble few strands up outside...maybe today before a little snow arrives. Thanks for the motivation!

In stitches,
Teresa :o)

I love your Christmas Dear Jane. What a clever idea! The Dear Jane puzzle looks like fun too.
