Christmas Time

My presents are wrapped, my tree is up, my cookies are baked and I've been to the Post Office!  I can relax for a few days now:

Scott picked out a beautiful tree this year and it smells lovely!  I decorated it simply with handmade country style ornaments that mom and I made a few years back.  For garland, I just use red and gold beads.  I have to be careful with what I put on the tree because of my cats although this year, Nightmare and Lucy don't seem to have much interest in it.  Instead of my tree-skirt that mom made for me, I kept it simple.  Just an old quilted blanket from when I was little.  Mom gave it to me because I love mint green so much!  I must say, the tree makes me miss my Simba.  He used to love to lay under the tree.  He thought he was hiding but I knew better.

I've been stitching away the early morning hours on my Valentine hearts.  I've made 6 of these so far.  These are the last 3:



We've had a few flurries today and I have Christmas music playing on the radio although I think I'll turn it off again, make a cup of tea and see what they're selling on QVC.

tree looks beautiful, once again I am minus a tree but maybe next tree I will have one. Would like one with rooots on in a pot so I can put it in the garden after Christmas and bring it in each year. Did this whilst married then one year I was in Australia for Xmas and the tree by then had been planted in the garden as it had got so big and when I came home he had dug it up and brought it in but had not replanted it, away 3 months but managed to save it and it then stayed in the garden!!

Hearts are looking fabulous, a very happy Christmas to you and your family
