Today ....

... is my youngest childs birthday


this is the widget's mother... and we will all have lunch together to celebrate

Today .....

....we are allowed to start opening our FHFS presents


mine are from Shez and today I got a pack of very nice cards .... we ALWAYS run out so thanks Shez... perfecto....

Yesterday .....

I opened my box of decorations and our tree is dressed

lots of handmade ornaments .... I love them all
baubles and lights
a little bit of magic


... filling corners with Christmas quilts ....


Last night.....

.... it got quite cool after our hot weather so I didn't mind sitting with a quilt on my lap doing some binding .....


Last week ......

I had some lovely mail with Christmas lovelies... 

This lovely tag came from Marina .... so clever with her colours and a rusty bell on the bottom


Michelle sent me one of her embroidered angels.... those bullion roses - oh my


Thanks to Maria for a fat quarter of beautiful Christmas fabric.... it is pretty and strokable....
(Japanese made... such lovely quality)


a Michelle Palmer original drawing on fabric from one of Santa's elves



Clever ladies, wonderful ideas....  it's beginning to look like Christmas over here....

Righto, Gotto Go.... the thing about decorating is you move things ... and find dirt (well I do... I'm sure others don't!!)
