  1. Some of those table runners are really stunning and would make wonderful gifts for friends and relatives.
    Right now I am working on a tree skirt but trying to think of a door decoration that could also be an advent calendar.

  2. A wonderful List for Christmas patterns.
    Thanks for it so much.

    Greetings from Germany
