Advent Blog Hop

Today I am Joining Jo's Advent Blog Hop. Thanks to Jo of Serendipitous Stitching for organizing this fun holiday hop. I was happy to get December 2 as my day.  This is the first Sunday in Advent.  Some recognize this as the Sunday of Hope.  So I have chosen a fairly old design to share with you today.  It is "A Weary World Rejoices" by Shakespeare"s Peddler. 


This was also the best choice because one of my favorite Christmas songs is" O Holy Night". I am sorry not to have a recording of that song for you, but not being very tech savvy, I was not sure how to load a song on my blog.   I'm sure you have heard the song many times during the Christmas Season.   Thanks again Jo and a very Merry Christmas to all of you!
