Countdown to Christmas

Updated: Mar 8, 2020

Years ago my Dad made me an advent calendar, a wooden one. And even now, towards the end of November the excitement starts to build knowing it's time to retrieve it from the Christmas box. The whole tradition fills me with such wonderful warm memories. Mum used to wrap up hidden treasures for each day, nothing lavish just a little random surprise, usually edible! But sometimes there was something far more precious, a little note, from the heart. My parents are no longer with us but those glorious memories remain, forever with me. I always have a little 'moment' when the calendar reappears ready for my husband, who has taken over chalet replenishment!

With that in mind, this year I decided to make Advent Quilts, so others could create their own family tradition. Follow the journey of Quilt One:
