I’m reading Christmas books. Are you?

Is this weather crazy or WHAT? It’s definitely a season for reading Christmas books! We had a beautiful September, a cold October (including a 9” snowfall here in Minnesota), and then it was in the 70’s again this past weekend, and now we have another winter storm watch. Like I said… Minnesota. But I think this kind of fickle weather is a pattern for most midwestern states.  The nice weather was a blessing as we visited our Wisconsin kids and grandkids over the weekend. We met our newest grandson, 4-day-old Fynnigan!

Christmas books by Cathe SwansonChristmas books are here again! I have five of them now, including Potato Flake Christmas in the 2020 Christmas Lights Collection, Hearts Aglow. Have you read it yet?  All my Christmas books are available in paperback and for Kindle.  The Kindle books are just $2.99 – less than the price of a peppermint mocha latte! – or you can read them free with a Kindle Unlimited subscription!

Chirstian Christmas books in Kindle Unlimited

Speaking of Kindle Unlimited (as I so often do), be sure to check out this super collection of Christian Christmas books. You can read ALL of them through your Kindle Unlimited Subscription! Some are novellas, some are big collections – enough that you can start reading now and stay in the Christmas spirit all the way through December.  Longer, if necessary, because there are so many new Christmas books this year, too!

(Learn about Kindle Unlimited HERE, if you aren’t familiar with it.)

So… what’s next? I’ve been doing more quilting lately, preparing for a local Christmas craft sale. I’ll be selling books there, too, but I needed a shift in creativity, and quilting is a big part of who I am. I miss teaching quilt classes, in this locked-down world, so I’m going to offer a year-long Block of the Month program starting in January, in a private Facebook group. There will be a fee for the pattern, but mostly, I’m doing it to reach out, connect with other quilters and have fun. My personal “quilting philosophy” is that it needs to be creative and enjoyable, or you might as well buy your quilt at JCPenney.  It will be cheaper and probably look very nice.

If you think you might be interested in participating, leave a comment here or follow me on my GloryQuilts Facebook page for upcoming announcements.  If you follow me on Facebook, you may still want to leave a  comment here, because Facebook isn’t always very good at showing us the things we want to see!

And books!

There are so many I want to write – so many I have started! Roy and Mona, from Snow Angels, have been waiting a long time for their happily ever after, so I’m going to finish their book next.  It’s technically the 3rd book in the Great Lakes series, between Snow Angels and Hope for the Holidays, and the series will conclude with Ben and Phoebe’s story in 2022.

I hope winter – as it comes – finds you healthy and warm. I’m praying for an end to this pandemic and praying for peace in our land. In the world. I’m thankful for so many things, even if we don’t get the usual “Thanksgiving Day” this year. God is still on His throne, and He is more than enough.
