Christmas is coming! Christmas is coming!

and I am just as excited as our four year old Hayley, who is visiting us today. She was
given the presents she will keep at our house and is making a 'necklace' for Papa right now.
She informed me that I can play with her new 'beads' another day. What a precious, joyous, sweet little girl she is. Grandchildren are such a blessing!

She was n't too impressed with visiting Santa - and decided she would tell us about it
later! I will have to ask her mother how it went. She said she likes Papa better than
Santa. (which, as you can imagine, made Papa's buttons burst.

I just finished the top of 'The three sisters, near the Bow River " which are near Canmore, on the way to
Banff. If you are ever on the Trans Canada Highway, heading to BC, when you get to Canmore, check out the 3 beautiful peaks on the left. I still have some leaves and branches to put on the large trees but will do them once I have the wall hanging quilted.

This is the first of a series of the Canadian Rockies.
I am giving Mt. Rundle, the Mountain in the tutorial I posted here, to
my good friend Wendy who introduced me to Wellspring and has been so kind.
Wendy dear, I hope you like it! I hope to see you over the Christmas holidays to give it to
you. Wendy visits my blog often!

I will do another Mt. Rundle for the series
Thought for the day
"What is Christmas? It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present and hope for the future. It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal, and that every path may lead to peace." unknown author.
