Christmas Eve

 Today is the last day of my 
 Advent Calender
so you know what
that means......

 Happy Christmas!

 Getting close now...
I did some thing realy STUPID on Tuesday

 With everything else I must do
I decided to tidy my "space"
I moved almost every thing out of the room...
The Mountain Climber was NOT happy when he came home and 
our entire living area was full of my precious stuff.....

My son and I pushed and dragged the furniture around

 and then put it all back
after a couple of trips to the shops to get storage containers

I am very pleased with myself 
and I'm ready to get back to messing it up again 
as soon as
the Silly Season is over.

 I don't know where the time has gone
I have been so busy though.
We flew to Sydney last weekend for a wedding.
It was lovely.
The bride made the bouquets!

And  as it's almost Christmas  I thought I would show you my "crib"

Since I started quilting I have tried to make a 
new Christmas decoration
each year.

I have not dated them all
But I have got to the stage 
where there is not enough room to hang them all
or maybe
I need to get out the hammer and nails?

less than 2 weeks to go now

I had in mind I wanted a sun hat for the weekend
and I spent the whole day making this.
I made the largest size
but it's too small.
Never mind, it has gone to a good home.

Would you like to see more trees?

Thought I would save you time and do three days at once.

I have decorated my tree....

my mother gave me these decorations when I first left home

a bit if a look around the room....  

and these were a gift from one of my "girls".
Woops, no 6th!

some Christmas trees....

Our tree this year is a live Norfolk Pine.
It is a beautiful tree with sparse foliage.

Look at  these beautiful cribs!

They are locally made by a friend of mine.
They are only tempory decorations here
as I have bought them for gifts.

I'm back!

Whoa that COLD really hit me!
But I am feeling good this morning

The season of Advent started last weekend
so the countdown begins

That's a little pocket  
and when my children are home they can find a treat in there.
I will try and bring you a treat each day
