We awoke to frost covering the landscape, but the sun is bright and green grass is still the prominent view. However, we won’t allow that to stifle our Christmas anticipation. I’m rather certain snow is in our future here in Michigan.
Today will be busy with last minute preparation for the Holiday Magic Marketplace at the Royal Oak Farmers Market. The Marketplace will be open from 4pm until 9pm. This is in conjunction with the tree lighting ceremony which takes place directly across the street in the plaza by Royal Oak library. The market will have free hot dogs and hot chocolate and Santa will make a visit in a fire truck. I hope you can join the festivities and visit me at my Yooper Trails table. I will have a selection of punch needle including Christmas items. The market address is 316 E. 11 Mile, Royal Oak. 48067.
Santa on a broom and top hat and in a metal frame share space with a Prairie Schooler cross stitch pillow. They all sit upon my Triangles By Design quilt which took me three years to complete.
I was fortunate to be featured in the Detroit Free Press Homestyle magazine last Friday. The column by Jocelyn Brown is called Handmade. Click here to read the article. It was nice to have needle punch enjoy some exposure.
I will be offering an update on my blog Saturday night at 8pm under the “Shop Yooper Trails” tab.
