My Primitive Southern California Christmas part one

                 Christmas time and I have been busy working away on projects.
                                     I hope you enjoy my Southern California Christmas

                                   So many things like the snowman and tree was made by friends

                                                                    A quilt I made

 My Christmas Angel I hooked

Today is a  Super gusty cold day.The wind is fierce and I need to close my garden umbrella before it breaks.The wind is actually howling and branches are falling all over the place.We don't get snow where I live at Christmas time in San Diego County but if were lucky it gets colder.We have Santa Ana winds going on today but it's a cold Santa Ana Brrr!  I am still arranging my Christmas
decorations so if you check later this afternoon I will be adding more
pictures as I finish decorating.

Your home is just lovely! I love the quilt you made and I also love the manger scene. So sweet. Your Christmas Angel is precious as well.

I miss my mom. I need to make a trip to El Cajon!

Saundra said...

Oh my, I'm definitely going to visit this posting more than once. I love all the pictures, love your very primitive snowman hooked piece and really have my eye on that wonderful pig rug hanging. Now I want to hook a pig!

Hi Saundra, The pig was made by an Amish lady years ago. That's what got me interested in Rug Hooking.

Hi Julia, I posted one this morning and posted the second one this afternoon.

Julia said...

Yes Cheri, I did noticed your sheep rug. There was so much stuff to take in that I missed commenting on it. You have lots done on it. I'm betting that you'll have it finished before Christmas. Your daughter will love it for sure. Hugs. JB

Hi Julia, I am doing rug hooking every night and doing sections at a time on the sheep. Every night I work til 10 on it. The background has been the biggest challenge. I started on this just a couple months ago from a printed monks cloth pattern I had in my drawer.Cheri
