Quote of the Week:
If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much room !!
Oh my gosh, is it Tuesday already? Where are the days going lately? Everyone is madly preparing for the festive season which is only weeks away now - the elbows are coming out in the supermarket aisles and the 'push and shove' is getting a little heavier on the footpaths as people go about their Christmas shopping.
I must confess right here and now, that I haven't even thought about where to start - my girls put up our Christmas tree last night, a tradition in our house on the 1st December every year.
It's lots of fun watching them pull out all of their creations that they have made over the years from kindergarten to now - how many nativity sets made out of shoe boxes and empty toilet rolls can one family possibly have? Then there are the reindeer tree decorations made from pegs complete with boggly eyes and pipe cleaners for their antlers - not to mention the angels made from paper doilies . . . how many of you out there can relate to this?? I haven't the heart to throw any of it out - there's nothing better than hearing them say 'remember when I was four . . . . and I made this at Kinder' . .
Deirdre spent all of her Sunday decorating her place for Christmas - she is being very minimilstic this year - down from ten trees to only four. FOUR!!!! But it does always look beautiful. I wonder how many shoe box nativity sets she still has?
Now because Christmas is a time for giving, we would like to have a giveaway, so if you have a funny Christmas story that you would like to share with us, leave a comment and we will announce the winners next Monday. The three lucky recipients will each receive a copy of my pattern "Tiny Treasure Cones", that you can see at the top of the page.
Thank you to everyone who left lovely comments through the week - it is so nice to read them all. I'm off to start on my Christmas list . . . have a great week.
Until next time,
Leonie & Deirdre - The Quilted Crow
