Christmas Corner August 2015

Welcome to Christmas Corner:  A place to share Christmas projects and gifts throughout the year.

For this month I have a tale to tell.
The Christmas Eve Miracle
Sasha (snowy white) and Caroline (cobalt blue) were two of Santa's special, beloved Christmas Chickens.  They were the best of all the egg layers and were hailed by all the toy builders for their delicious and nutritious eggs, as well as their wonderful personalities! One Christmas Eve, a snow storm hit while Sasha and Caroline had been out stretching their legs in the free range.  The blinding snow prevented them from finding their way back to the coop!  Great devastation and worry plagued all of the North Pole inhabitants!  But a miracle occurred, as miracles do on Christmas Eve, and the Coop Keeper realized that Caroline's cobalt feathers could be seen through the blinding white snowflakes.  With a rope tied to his waist, he made his way to Caroline and Sasha just as the dark night approached and he could no longer see Caroline.  But never fear, it was then that Sasha's bright white feathers shone by the light of the full moon and the Coop Keeper did indeed find the beloved pair.  He guided them all back to safety and all of the North Pole's population rejoiced and said a prayer of thanks!  Santa was able to begin with joy in his heart as once again he succeeded in his yearly night's journey!

In memory of this Christmas miracle, I have fashioned two Christmas Chicken Potholders, one in the likeness of Caroline and one of Sasha!  I found the easy to follow block tutorial by Vicki here at Sew Inspired.

Thanks again for stopping by Christmas Corner!  Hope you're finding a bit of time to fashion something Christmas-y!

Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts.
