Little Evelyn received her doll but I am sure she was looking for its's face...?? No doubt this is what you were going to tell me about. We have had a wonderful Christmas Day it was hot and sunny and we swam and ate and played tennis and cricket.

Eleventh hour sewing to finish off a Christmas book for someone to read under the Christmas tree or on Poppy's lap.
It has been a tradition in my family to put a variety of Christmas story books under the Christmas tree leading up til Christmas Day The children love it and it also saves the Christmas Baubles on the tree...lol. There's nothing like reading to little ones , it's truly quality time for adults and children.....It's never too early to start. Merry Christmas!

So exciting....My secret santa parcel arrived from the SSCS swap. The lovely Nancy from Pennsylvania USA has made me the most gorgeous Christmas Star. Thank you Nancy it is simply beautiful. Cant wait to open my present on Christmas day.
I just love the colouring and stitching. Sorry it is sideways but I posted on my phone.

I have been having a bit of a clean up during decorating and some things just need to be moved out....or do they... This lovely wooden box was in my kitchen with a cherry photo on the front. Always held plastic bags... but that's what drawers are for...
Now its in my sewing room. Big enough to hold cutters and scissors etc ... I have had this little sewing machine trinket for ages and I think it just suites the part....
Now finish cleaning up the sewing room and get into some sewing...
After reading Kate's blog where she took us for a tour of her lovely home. I thought , what a nice idea .
So I will give you a tour of mine. Bernie usually changes the blocks around to spell all sorts of crazy things that seems to have become a tradition in our house.
No it's not Christmas .. just left overs from the the 'tree decorating party".. have one every year so much better than doing it on your own when you are "empty nesters "..
Go from the kitchen to the dining room..new candle lights... a lovely gift from one of my friends ( and one of the tree decorators.)
Go the other way and the family room has a little more Christmas...kids corner.
From the dining room. Makes me feel like I am having a white Christmas when I look here.
Looking to the lounge room
I love Christmas ...Family... cooking... get togethers.....and rain.....
My niece and great niece ...it is so wonderful to have little people in our lives.
My beautiful granddaughter ... camping....and enjoying the rain ....even though the rest of the campers probably don't want it. Something about kids and rain they just don't care....
Bernie's been making pesto...it is pretty good I must add.
I love Christmas....
