Sorting out the bits for the Christmas Tree, Tilli having fun in the boxes. Click on the picture to see a bigger version.
The tree is up! Can you see Meggie?
Look at this lovely teddy.
I moved him here so that I can see him. After giving presents to the staff in Spotlight and as I was about to leave, One of the lovely staff members called me back and gave me this really lovely teddy. How wonderful and totally unexpected. I thanked them as said I will enjoy him for a few days and get some picture with him and I will then put him under the K Mart Wishing Tree for some child to cherish. (he is so soft and cuddly).
This is the dining room table.
I have also put a wreath on the front door, but that is a picture for another day.
More decorations made. These lovely angels are brooches that had on the front, It's a Girl, and It's a Boy on them. I just printed on fabric Merry Christmas and hot glued over the original words.
Last night/this mornings work. Now I am off to do some weeding for a friend before the hot weather sets in. Just for an Idea, because they are wire I found I could just give it a little pull and they became ovals then I could add the longer middle pendants.
This is what I have bought today, these little bags of beads and necklaces to turn into Christmas decorations. I have one more stop to make and give them out and that is to all the staff at Spotlight. I have made a couple already using the findings of today.
Another op shop today I found these, an Aussie handkerchief I will fussy cut and will be able to make 5 blocks with, and two linen T towels I will pass on to a quilter to be incorporated into a quilt.
A lovely knitting book for my library and some lovely yarn for the cord for laundry bags.
