Vintage Christmas cards

I found this collection of vintage cards, most from the early 60's a few weeks ago on a road trip with hubby. I was happy to find most were for little boys.  I don't have time to make anything for this Christmas, but I'm looking forward to using these in the coming year. Enjoy!

Joseph's Lullaby

Go to sleep my Son
This manger for your bed
You have a long road before You
Rest Your little head

Can You feel the weight of Your glory?
Do You understand the price?
Or does the Father guard Your heart for now
So You can sleep tonight?

Go to sleep my Son
Go and chase Your dreams
This world can wait for one more moment
Go and sleep in peace

I believe the glory of Heaven
Is lying in my arms tonight
Lord, I ask that He for just this moment
Simply be my child

Go to sleep my Son
Baby, close Your eyes
Soon enough You'll save the day
But for now, dear Child of mine
Oh my Jesus, Sleep tight

Rug finishing

I was able to finish "punching"my Christmas rug earlier this week. I don't remember where the pattern is from, I started it so long ago. Almost all the wool is from Kindred Spirits and the fabric was purchased at a quilt show many years ago. I had wanted to do traditional rug hooker but didn't like it. Then I discovered I could use a punch and wool yarn to make my rugs. This is the fourth one I've made.

I have been working on finishes all day. A lot of projects have several steps so it seems to take forever. This stocking is the only project that is completely done. I hope to get a couple more done tonight. I'll post pictures of the other projects as soon as they are done.
