"Remember, if Christmas isn’t found in your heart, you won’t find it under a tree.” ~ Charlotte Carpenter

Grandparents' Christmas Postcard #5


Snow, snow and more snow here in Central New York!  Even though it has been a bit rainy today, it will be a White Christmas here to be sure.  I admit that I do love it. In addition to wrapping up some gifts, I have also wrapped up a project that I have been working on since mid-October - my Top Down Icelandic Sweater.  I have shared its progress with you along the way, and I'm happy to report that it is done, and that I am quite pleased with the final product!






You will see that I opted for toggles rather than buttons - and I'm very happy that I did.  All-in-all, this was a very satisfying project.  I know that there are more of them on the horizon!

I hope that your days leading up to Christmas are filled with love and joy!
