Sweetwater’s 12 Days of Christmas…Day 8

sweetwater's 12 days of christmas

8 Maids-a-Milking…i really do like fresh milk–but i’m sure that’s from growing up on the farm!  i, however, also really like this “Fresh” wall hanging.



with your purchase of the fresh kit you will receive a Warm Apple Pie pattern FREE!

and now some history of day 8 of the 12 days of christmas…first off….8 Maids-a-Milking (for 1 hour)…$60.  compared to the swans this isn’t bad at all.

“Catholics in England during the period 1558 to 1829, when Parliament finally emancipated Catholics in England, were prohibited from ANY practice of their faith by law – private OR public. It was a crime to BE a Catholic.”  www.byrum.org

Thus The 12 Days of Christmas was written as a memory aid to learning the Christian Faith.  The 8 Maids-a-Milking refer to the 8 beatitudes.

So that’s all for day 8.

**remember today only with purchase of the from our Etsy shoppe you will receive the pattern FREE!  be sure to let me know in the “Note to Seller” if you want me to hold all your orders until the end of the 12 days.  your order will then ship on or around Jan. 9th.  Shipping will be figured and any extra charges will be refunded.
