Dear Son's Chapel Volunteers,

Son's Chapel CHRISTMAS SING-A-LONG, Sunday, December 4, 2:00-4:00

NEEDED for decorations - CHRISTMAS POINSETTIAS (to use/borrow)

refreshments - COOKIES

Come, invite family, neighbors and friends! Enjoy being together and singing Christmas CAROLS to put us in the festive Christmas spirit!

Better enjoy today, for the NW winds doth blow bringing chilly temperatures. The TV weatherman recommends getting out the UGLY "Christmas sweaters" for a cold blast is forthcoming! So looks like the comfortable/mild 62 degrees end, as does November. For this, my favorite 5th Tues. were 20 active quilters/stitchers. Our early lunch conversation was about "accents" (a form of language/vernacular that is peculiar to a specific region or social/cultural group): Southern drawl, Northern dialect, Bostonian R'S, PA Dutch/German, British English, slang, etc., with B saying, "the Tennessee twang closely mirrors true Edwardian/ Victorian English!"

We had 5 visitors today!

QUILTING NEWS: Still quilting away to get the last six quilts finished. M quilted a printed animal panel, now ready to bind. She also shared her latest Christmas gifts: A "Christmas Present" quilt (uniquely designed wrapped packages with 2-dimensional ribbons) for daughter-in-law, and Curious George plush toy and "drag quilt" for two, young, grandsons. N has finished quilting the BIG, x-stitched animal panel quilt (emb. by J). Her many stitches really show up on the red/ burgundy backing. S is quilting the last border of the pieced animal quilt. L has finished the 2nd set of pieced animal squares, already ordered; and has an order for another set! B emb. a "lemonade stand" center, a new pattern. J has begun another BIG, crib-sized panel, a x-stitch "hobby horse."

Two tidbits:

CHRISTMAS SWEATERS are NOT UGLY to me! Don't know how/where/why/when/who came up with such (a nomenclature)?!?!!? I LOVE and ENJOY Christmas sweaters, and invite you to wear your favorite, FESTIVE, colorful, seasonal Christmas sweater for our Sunday, Christmas sing-a-long. I'll wear mine, IF you'll wear yours?!?!?!?!?

Then thinking of Christmas sing-a-long... We can name and probably know several verses of most all of the traditional CHRISTMAS CAROLS!
