Advent 4

A couple of ornaments from a train set I made a few years ago.  I like working with felt and sewing on the details.  The sequins give it a sparkle that's appreciated at this dark time of year.  We are having more stormy weather.  A few hours west of here has had significant ice, but we have been spared that so far - just snow and ice pellets.  However, we may get the freezing rain later today.
A good opportunity to do some more Christmas cookie baking.

Hark! The Herald Angels Sing

Hail the heaven born Prince of Peace!
Hail the Sun of Righteousness!
Light and life to all He brings,
Risen with healing in His wings.
Mild He lays His glory by,
Born that man no more may die,
Born to raise the sons of earth,
Born to give them second birth.
Hark! the herald angels sing,
"Glory to the new-born King."

Charles Wesley, 1739

I hope you get a chance to watch "A Charlie Brown's Christmas" this year.  It's a must see at our house.


  1. Have a great time at the cookie bake. Love these ornaments. It would be fun to make something special like these. Our ice was north, but it was solid FOG! We heard a marvelous sermon on angels this morning. I don't think I will forget it for some time. Merry Christmas if I don't see you Jenny!

  2. Handmade felt ornaments are treasures!

  3. I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don’t know what to
    say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.I’ll use this information for my essays.
