(almost) wordless wednesday: it’s beginning to to look a lot like christmas

christmas-quilt

it’s beginning to look a lot like christmas
ev’rywhere you go
take a look in the five-and-ten,
glistening once again
with candy canes silver lanes aglow

it’s beginning to look a lot like christmas
toys in ev’ry store
but the prettiest sight to see
is the holly that will be
on your own front door

a pair of hopalong boots and a pistol that shoots
is the wish of barney and ben
dolls that will talk and will go for a walk
is the hope of janice and jen
and mom and dad can hardly wait for school to start again

it’s beginning to look a lot like christmas
ev’rywhere you go
there’s a tree in the grand hotel,
one in the park as well
the sturdy kind that doesn’t mind the snow

it’s beginning to look a lot like christmas
soon the bells will start
and the thing that will make them ring
is the carol that you sing
right within your heart a

I "think" it's the turning twenty quilt pattern! Such a fun & easy quilt to make!

What a fun fun Christmas blanket. I've got one started myself - the top is done and now it's got to get finished!

I think you'll appreciate this little story, being a SoCal lady! When I was little, I thought the line "Take a look at the 5 and 10" was referring to the freeways, since there was always a lot of traffic sparkling like a candy cane with the head lights and tail lights!
