Christmas Stockings and Pretty Little Things by Heidi Emmett

Zephyr Point and LakeView Lodge, 2012. The biggest snow storm of that winter. And we were there, our family, for our Christmas (Dec. 22-24th).

DSC_0455A little perspective, the snow plow is going past Dobbins (the big old building where we all met at our first annual retreat. I took this shot from the steps of LakeView Lodge.

Our trucks are all packed. We’re ready to tackle all roads that lead to Zephyr Point Presbyterian Conference Center and LakeView Lodge for our  Family Christmas. We aren’t expecting this much snow. But I had to show you some shots of the beauty of Zephyr in the winter, 2012 that is.

Before we leave we had a chance to get this cool stocking over to Debbie who helped us with the Artistic Alchemy retreat this past September. AND we even gave it to her on her birthday, December 17th. Happy birthday Debbie!

Raw edge stitching and fun, spiral quilting make up this lively stocking. Make your own with all your favorite scraps.

From fabric pieces, a book mark, socks, felting tools, yo-yo makers, napkins, stickers,an ornament, soap, hand knit face cloth, napkins, and even more, all to keep Debbie busy sewing and quilting up a storm.

Another gift idea for busy little boys. There are polar fleece blankets for building forts, flashlights, books to read, stickies for windows and beautiful hand made star ornaments for the tree. Ornaments and blankies are fun to make.

DSC_0466One more gift idea. O.K., they aren’t quilted, but many of the pictures in the necklaces are quilts. These are sooooo easy and fun to make. I’m so bad, one for me, one for her, one for me,……ha, ha.

Aren’t they beautiful?. Each kit comes with everything you need, even the chains. Here is where you can get them:

There is still time to get creative before Christmas. Make it up and above all, HAVE FUN! Merry Christmas everyone. Hugs, Heidi
