Advent Calendar: December 10 – Christmas Gifts

In this installment of the Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories, our daily prompt is “Christmas Gifts.”  Today, I’d like to share two pictures of me with some of my Christmas gifts

First, here I am in 1980 when I was 5 years old.  I remember getting this needlework set and I just loved it! I was 5 here and I do believe this was the part of my initial spark for needlework! (see my cross-stitch projects here)

And, another picture of me in Christmas, 1982 when I was 7.  This was the year I got my Barbie RV too – ooh, how I loved that toy! In this particular picture, I’m holding up my Snoopy pajamas I got.

Then, there was the year my mother dressed up as a gift for a work holiday party.  They were having a contest for the “best gift” and needless to say, my mother won :-)

One thought on “Advent Calendar: December 10 – Christmas Gifts

  1. What wonderful memories! I learned how to do embroidery, cross stitch, etc., as a young child too. My Grandma taught me and my brother back in 1970. I visited the link and your work is beautiful!

    Your Mom looks great, too!
