Christmas Advent Calendar

Here’s a project to get a head start on! There are so many memories tied to the advent calendar that we had when I was a child. It was a must have tradition for my own children. I love this calendar because it incorporates many mini embroidery designs. So many designs can be made festive by just using the right thread colors.

Sugar Grandma

My kids have been adopted by what I lovingly call the “Sugar Grandma.”  She brings them gifts for Christmas and on their birthdays and spoils them while their own grandmas live far away.  Sometimes she even spoils me.  Take a look at what she spotted for me in a second hand store.

Apparently it wasn’t the most popular machine of it’s day, but it is a beauty!
