Hi!! I am so excited about this time of year! Even though all my children are grown and I still am feeling that empty nest syndrome --which I don't think I will ever get over --- I LOVE this time of year with all the excitement! Especially the MUSIC! I love it when they start playing Christmas music. Doesn't it just put you in the mood and take you right back to your childhood. I remember growing up when it seemed there was a Santa Clause on every corner in our downtown. Now we don't shop in downtown any longer...just shopping malls and it doesn't seem as exciting as walking the streets of the city with all the lights where the Santa's were ringing big bells and in the BIG stores children were lined up just waiting to sit on his lap. Of course, that isn't the real reason we are to celebrate Christmas because it is Jesus Birthday. Even though this "Free Chart" I have done for you does have a Santa Clause on it....please remember the true meaning of what this season is all about and what we are truly celebrating....the Birth of our Lord. Without Him we wouldn't be able to give those wonderful presents to our loved ones and friends or have any wonderful things. So as the season approaches, I hope you will take time to step back and not get caught up so much this year in what you can spend on each other but more in what you can give from you heart. Those things that are truly remembered. For memories are really one of the only things we can call our own.
Be Blessed as Always,

I love your designs and can't believe you always give them away as freebies ~ thank you!

I love santas too, but we always taught our children that it was ALL about Jesus' b'day, NOT about Santa! I think too many people emphasize the jolly old guy and NOT about the TRUE meaning of Christmas. Thank you for sharing that on your blog.

Have a wonderful holiday season!

Nancy, God Bless you for giving of your gift. Love your patterns.. So very generous of you. Although I am a lover of Santa's, I will not forget the true meaning of Christmas. Without Him we can do nothing.....

Thank you so much for this wonderful design. I just love it. I love Christmas and always love to have a project I can carry around in a ziploc bag in my purse and pull out at the doctor's office or anywhere and do a few stitches. 30 minutes here and there make the project get done pretty quick!
I love your blog too. said...
