Saturday morning was lovely.  Not too cold and not too hot but just right for coffee with a couple of friends.  We sat outside and shared our plans for the holidays. It is always nice to spend time with friends.

I arrived home to

DH  spent the morning decorati g the tree. It reminds me of the Nutcracker. The traditional red and green with all the toys waiting for the magic.

My contribution is a vintage jug with sparkling  twigs decorated with embelished patchwork hearts and crocheted baubles.

Under my needle is binding this signature quilt. Started in 1997  I am close to completion.  Christmas is a time for family and all 9 of us will be together.  So looking forward to happy grandies in the pool and laughing lots over prawns on the barbie.

Do you have long standing traditions for the holiday season?

Enjoy your week. Terry

What a wonderful surprise. It must have felt as though Christmas elves had magically made Christmas appear. I love your sparkling stick tree with crafted decorations.. Phil and I have the simple tradition of enjoying a carefree day of delicious food and champagne and being thankful for our lovely life.
