Henry Glass Designers' Progressive Dinner Party - Day 1 Leanne Anderson



Meet Leanne Anderson, matriarch of The Whole Country Caboodle.
This is her Christmas collection, "Away in a Manger" that ships in May.

Away in a Manger Collection



The "Away in the Manger" book


Favorite Christmas Memory

My favorite part of Christmas is spending time with family.  As a child, Christmas Eve was such a special time for us and that has continued with my family.  We attend Christmas Eve service, then go to our daughters’ house for appetizers (one being the Pickle Wrap Dip) and just spend time together.  As a child after the service, we used to drive around town and see how people decorated their houses then go home and sing a few Christmas carols.  My parents didn’t have a lot, but it felt like we did.  I guess it’s not about what’s under the tree for us, it’s about the gift of Jesus and our family…we are so incredibly blessed.   From our family to yours, wishing you a very Merry Christmas and Happy and Healthy New Year!!

I love this fabric line. Too bad I didn't see it in the store where I work. Thanks for the recipe and giveaway. FYI - the link to Quilt 1 takes you to a pumpkin quilt, and not the expected Away in the Manger quilt.
