I hear it........on the radio

while I'm driving the lone country road back to home..........
making me want to sing along.............
bouncing up and down in the seat as I drive...................
not caring if the cows I am passing see me............{:
I hear it in the stores while I ponder away at my grocery list........
making my mood so light and happy, that I want to purchase things that are not on my list............
Those cheery Christmas tunes...................are stuck in my head
and in my heart............
I just had to stitch something with the holiday in mind. This will be a table runner when I am through stitching on it. It has the same design on the other end and a small poinsettia on each center side. It will make a cheerful holiday table. Don't you think??
How about you?
Does all of that Christmas music get you excited.........inspired?
I would love to hear!

Oh yes, Kathleen...I love Christmas music! It inspires and warms the soul. Your soon to be runner is just lovely. ooo it makes me want to embroider. Please show the finished product when you're done. I love your poem, too...

Thank you for stopping by to visit. Now-a-days I wouldn't suggest you eat the topping raw unless you use pasteurized eggs or eggs from your own hens.

Enjoy the music in your ears and heart,
Marianne xo

I do love to hear the Christmas music, although it seems everything comes to us too soon so that by Christmas Day we're tiring of it.

I love working on Christmas stitchery of some kind during December, help me get into the holiday spirit. We are just leaving S. Calif for home and will e busy with setting up the tree, outside light, and any number of things when I get home. Christmas music will be full on!

Very pretty runner! Just think, it will probably be passed down in your family for years, gotten out at Christmas.

What a beautiful poinsettia table runner this is going to be! I listen to a lot of Christmas music here at home on CDs. (I'm probably picky about the tunes I want to hear.)

Hard to believe it is December 1st. All week I've been singing Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow. We won't be getting any snow around here but that song always puts me in a good mood. My favorite Christmas song is O Holy Night. Especially when it is sung a cappella. Your stitched table runner is beautiful! Have a great day. Tammy

I will be doing a few sewing projects. One seems to get in the mood at this time of the year. Your poinsettias are beautiful.

The poinsettias are beautiful! I know the table runner will be perfect when finished! Yes, I love Christmas music...it always gets me in the mood! I haven't heard much this year, but when I do, my heart just skips a beat. I guess all the memories of those wonderful past Christmases just flood in....

Thanks for your comment on my blog!
