Thanks to Jo at Serendipitous Stitching, today is MY day for the Online Advent Calendar. I am sharing one of my Favorite Christmas stitches, by Blackbird Designs, called Blessings Be Thine. I love the sentiment on this piece, and am so excited to hang it in my foyer every Christmas, so everyone see it and is blessed!
I was also to talk about 'Festive Food' and traditions. Unfortunately, growing up, my family did not have any Festive Food traditions. I do remember that once in a while, on special occasions, like Easter (and maybe Christmas?), we had roast Leg of Lamb. I loved it! And my father would always say that was because when I was born, I was as big as a Leg of Lamb, so I was destined. I do not eat it now, and have not for a long time. Had it about 23 years ago, and it turned my stomach. No tradition for me! MY family usually has turkey and all the trimmings again for Christmas. Though I think this year, we will have a ham and au gratin potatoes (made by me, not a mix!), rolls, sweet potatoes cause I froze a batch, and a veggie casserole of course! Not very exiting, but it's the way we roll...
Merry Christmas everyone!
