Christmas Traditions

Today I thought that it might be fun to share some of our Christmas Traditions!   This is a lengthy post, but you have all weekend…right? :)

But before I start this post…I would like to wish everyone a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving weekend!  I hope that you get to do something that you love with people that you love! 

One of our Christmas traditions that we do is to donate blankets and quilts to one of our local hospitals.  We start this in November or even before.  I try to make a few quilted quilts and then we all tie several fringed fleece blankets. (click on link for tutorial on how to make these easy fleece blankets)
