Twelve Weeks of Christmas
Week 9

It's All About Family!

Remember when you were little and you couldn't wait until the first snow?  All you wanted to do is get outside and build a snowman... or maybe even three!  This week's ornament "It's All About Family" is one of the best things about the holiday season!  During the year we are so busy with our own lives we just seem to pass by times when we could all be together.  However, there is always great hugs, laughter, fun, and food within our family during the holiday season!  It's just wonderful!

This group of family is made from wool and the little baby snowman is made from wool roving balls that are connected together and attached to the ornament.  Simply adorable.  Download your free pattern, order your kit, and have fun making number nine in our Twelve Weeks of Christmas!

To print your FREE PATTERN and order your kits look on the right hand side bar - click on Twelve Days of Christmas!  Don't forget about your thread package and our    Dear Santa! Ornament  

It's a perfect gift for the children in your family that write lists to Santa... once they've completed their list - roll it up and tie it in Santa's mitten.  Hang it on the tree - lie in on the floor with Santa's Cookie plate, tie it to the outside front door know (if you have NO fireplace) - or how about on the bedpost?  There are tons of options... let your child help you decide!  Remember - it's all about making memories!  Everything included in the kit.  Patterns are NOT sold separately.

Dear Santa!


So... have the kids and grand kids already been thinking about what they would like for Christmas?  What they want to ask Santa for? 

I can remember my sister and I sprawled out near the Christmas tree - with the sparkling lights shining on the pages of our toy catalogs from Sears, Spiegel, Montgomery Wards... (I'm  telling on my age) ... eating popcorn and drinking Kool-Aid... with our crayons in hand circling pictures of all the toys we loved!  We did not have much money in our family when we were little, but we made great memories - special moments like this BEING TOGETHER AS A FAMILY!   We knew Santa could not bring everything on our list - but we sure had fun giving him options!  HA!

These types of memories last through a child's lifetime - not what toy they received -  but the entire process of being together as a family and celebrating with fun traditions.

So let's begin with each child completing their personal Christmas list (included in kit) - then rolling it up and placing in Santa's mitten and hanging on the tree  with excitement!

Santa is appliqued onto Army blanket wool.
Finishes approximately 10" x 10"
