Hello 

Welcome to the last Sunday of 2017!

I have been inspired by my quilt club girls to get a little more motivated to do more quilting...  They can really quilt!  So what I decided to do is get my quilt room organized.  My husband is making me an 8 foot table with storage shelves underneath.  I need more storage for all those gadgets & gizmos that go along with quilting & sewing.   I find it hard to work when it's too cluttered.   I will share pictures when done. (I can't wait!)  :-)

Here are a couple of quilt projects I am working on...

This one is going to be a memory quilt.
 This one is a Christmas wall hanging.
I want to wish you and your family 
a very Happy Healthy 
New Year 2018!

The Candy Cane Legend



Have you heard the legend of the Candy Cane?...

The Legend of the Candy Cane!  
The story is told of a Candy maker who wanted to make a candy the would help us remember what Christmas is really all about.  So he made a Christmas Candy Cane. He incorporated several symbols for the birth and life of Jesus Christ.

He began with the stick of pure white, hard candy. White to symbolize the virgin birth and sinless nature of Jesus. the hard candy is to symbolize the solid rock, the foundation of the Church and firmness of the promises of God.

The Candy maker made the candy in the form of a "J" to represent the name of Jesus.
It also represented the staff of the "Good Shepherd".

The candy maker then included red stripes, he used three small stripes and a large red stripe to represent the suffering Christ endured at the end of his life.

Merry Christmas!
