Christmas Village

Hello Everyone,
I hope you all had a great weekend.  Not much quilting is going on here at Sew'n Wild Oaks. Only preparations for Christmas, last minute cards, and baking.  I usually show a picture of my Christmas village every year.  This is my favorite house, the Country Quilt and Pie Shop. 

I take all of my cookbooks out of my old pie safe in the kitchen, and my granddaughters and I fill it back up with the Christmas Village.  The girls love working on the village and spend hours arranging and re-arranging the figurines, trucks, cars and sleighs.  I've been collecting the houses for over 30 years.  Storage has now become the issue!

Santa's annual visit was a big success Saturday night.  Our oldest granddaughter read The Polar Express then right on cue, Santa arrived.  Santa is a favorite with the little boys.  The girls are at the skeptical stage, but they went along with the program and didn't spill any beans.

I'm off to work at the shop this morning.  It will be fun seeing our customers and hearing about their Christmas plans.  Happy day to everyone.



  1. I just love your Christmas village and it is such a special collection to be really treasured. Happy Christmas

  2. Love the village display. My Mom has a vast collection and only now takes bits out to display - storage is an issue for her too.

  3. Is all that a Xmas tradition? I thought it lovely with the village and Santa coming. Take care and Merry Xmas.

  4. Great Village display. I have been on the lookout for a Village House that says Quilt Shop on it but cannot find one. I will keep looking.

  5. Love your display. I used to buy the Christmas houses when the children were little. One a year. I think the way you have displayed them is so creative. Wishing you and yours a Merry Christmas!

  6. Your village display is just amazing, this year is the first for my four year old grandson to have his photo taken with Santa, in the past it has been all screams and tears. I think he gets the relationship between Santa and presents now. Have a wonderful Christmas

  7. Your Christmas village is beautiful! Merry Christmas!
