I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
In the midst of finishing orders and stocking the shop, there was one thing I absolutely had to complete before the first of this month.
Our advent calendar!
I designed a tall house, similar to our house (which has lots of windows, but is only three stories high) The calendar house is about a three feet tall. It is made of wool felt and is machine and hand stitched together. There are twenty-four window pockets and a red door. Above the door I embroidered the word "Joy".
Inside each pocket is a tag with an activity for the day.
Examples are "Baking cookies", "Decorating the tree" and "A ride on the North Pole Express"
Behind the red door, is a gift shaped pocket. We plan to put a tag inside with clues to help find a special gift from Santa!
So what was the activity for today?
"Write a letter to Santa"
I better get started....
