One of my favorites, Heide, goes, 'There's no place like home for the holidays.' I hope my children all have it running through their little heads. :-) But actually, I guess that's more a Christmastime song, rather than a carol. My favorite carol is probably 'Once in Royal David's City.'
I enjoy them all, but if I had to choose I guess it would be Little Drummer Boy. My little ones enjoy singing this one so much and the lyrics are so beautiful, but to me all Christmas carols and songs are great.By the way, I loved the girls on the first Christmas video. They look so nicely dressed.I just finished sewing my 1950's red skirt for Christmas. I just hope I look as nice as the girls in the video.xox,Jacqueline
In the 1950s my cousin had a huge, full pink felt skirt with a gray poodle on it...no kidding! And she wore horn-rimmed?? glasses with rhinestones on them. YIKES.ANYway, Heide, I do love 'Of the Father's Love Begotten.' One of my favorites.I wish you were here tonight to give me a tutorial on how to pick up a dropped stitch. I had finished my first ever sweater and decided, foolishly, to try to get another one done before Christmas. Halfway down the yoke I looked over at my instructions and my point protector fell off and about 10 stitches fell off. WAH. I used another needle to carefully pick them up, but I have a run and I think I dropped at least one stitch. They disappear SO quickly. Of course I've watched the YouTube videos, but I can't locate the little loop I'm supposed to put my crochet hook through. So I'll wait for Beth or Kimmy to fix it for me. Grrr. All progress has come to a screeching halt! I really need to have a LOT of practice picking up dropped stitches, for it still puzzles me.
Cranberry Morning:Lol! "Home for the Holidays" is a fun song, the lyrics are so perky. You don't hear "Once in Royal David's City" very often, not even sure if I remember the words.Darling Homemaker:Don't you love the video! I couldn't resist posting it. "The Little Drummer Boy" is lovely song. I think it is all the par-up-a-pum-pums that apeals to kids(and grown ups!). I can't wait to see your new Christmas skirt! I am sure you will look lovely!
