December 12th Give-a-way & Nativity Sets Exhibition

 And the winner is .....
Cindy Stanley

Cindy chose The Hoots as her free pattern.

Each and every day we will choose a new winner from our daily orders until December 25th!
Thanks to everyone who placed an order and don't forget to check back to see who won the grand prize quilt on December 26th.  Happy Holidays!

I went Saturday to the Festival of Nativities at the Centenary United Methodist Church here in Lawrence, Kansas.  I have wanted to go for several years and this year I grabbed my camera because I wanted to share it with you.  The ladies that unpack almost 300 nativity sets year after year and lovingly put them out for display for the community to see need to be applauded. It must take hours and hours.  It was hard to pick which ones to show.  I also wish I could of taken you all with me because they were all so unique to see in person and that I so wish I was a better photographer..
