I love the Christmas season. It’s probably my favorite time of year. Not the commercial hustle-bustle and the frantic shopping usually associated with this holiday. For me, this is a time to stay home and enjoy meaningful time with the family. It is also a time for introspection. I love the church celebrations around this time – in my particular tradition, I am uplifted by the rituals and the liturgy. Which is why I also enjoy bringing my sewing talents to that liturgy.
With Advent beginning only a week away now, this week I decided to “whip” up some Advent stoles. I even used some of those EPP hexagons that continue to stack up in a basket. It’s fun to be able to work on quick projects like these… quick gratification!
