Hey everyone! The holidays are bearing down on us and I hope you're
having more luck then myself when it comes to getting prepared. I am
usually that annoying pre-season shopper, early present
wrapper, "git-r-done", type of girl! This year, my lists are
virtually untouched, my outdoor decor is not out yet, and my newly
decorated tree, decided to take a nose dive this weekend. Ho ho ho!
My house isn't cleaned like I like it to be, not one cookie is
baked, and I still have no clue where some of my family is going to
sleep! Ho ho ho! If I sound like I'm stressing a little, I'm really
not! If I have learned nothing else from my good friends here at
Kaye Wood Inc. over the years, it is this; Christmas will come,
whether there's a cookie in the house or not. My family doesn't care
if my house is immaculate. Lists are meant to be torn up and kids
will sleep anywhere you put them. But more importantly, Christmas is
not about any of those things getting done. That's what I need to
remember. So ring those holidays on in! I'm sure we'll have a
wonderful, blessed Christmas, with or without a cheese ball!

We want your tips!
Do you have a special little tip that has worked for you, that you'd
like to share? We are always open to new things and would like to
hear about them! Just e-mail your tip to me at the address below and
it will find a place in our newsletter!
1) Don't throw away the batting you trim from your quilts. You can
use it for table mats, coasters or table runners. Also, use your old
vinyl table cloths for lining in the coasters. Vivian N., Spring
2) I also plug my machine and iron into a power strip. However, I
also have a set of the inexpensive holiday lights plugged in also.
If the lights are on, the strip is on. Jody K.
3) I have found the perfect way to store my pins, needles, marking
pencils, and other sewing items that I like to have on hand. I use a
silverware tray in my sewing drawer. It keeps things separated well
and it's all there when I need it. Carolyn H., Silver Springs, MD
Christmas Holiday Facts
Oklahoma was the last state to declare Christmas as a legal holiday.
They didn't pass this until 1907.
The first commemorative Christmas stamp was issued in 1937 by
Donder, not Donner, which means thunder, was the original name of
the reindeer who helped pull Santa's sleigh. He was paired with
Blitzen, whose name means lightning.
The candy cane first gained popularity in churches, where it was
given as a treat to children who behaved themselves during services.
Gingerbread houses became popular gifts during the 19th century,
after The Brothers Grimm released the story of Hansel & Gretel.
The story of Rudolph was written as a sales gimmick for the
Montgomery Ward Co. in 1939, by one of their employees, Robert L.
May. The book was given freely to every customer who shopped there
during the Christmas season.
Show & Tell
Here are some more beautiful quilts from our readers to view! Thanks
to all of you that submit and share your quilts and stories with us!
I know everyone enjoys them as much as I do!
This is my first attempt at quilting. It was machine sewn and
machine quilted. I made this quilt and donated it to my grandson's
school to raffle at their Halloween Festival, for a fund-raiser. It
brought in $150.00! Roberta
This is a quilt I have just completed for my granddaughter and her
husband to be. I have used a pretty border print. It is in her
favorite colors and will be on her bed in Calgary, AB, Canada. It
was machine quilted by Margaret Knoff of Hoyt, NB, Canada. Thanks
for letting me share my picture! Janet, New Brunswick, Canada

Funny Computer Quips
A life? Cool, where do I download one of those?!
Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach him to use the
internet and he won't bother you for weeks.
To err is human, but to really mess things up, requires a computer.
