Christmas conversion complete!


Well that is that! The tree is up after much nagging and pointing out what a bad mother I was and how much of a scrooge I was. Put it up yourselves I say but then the baubles aren't distributed evenly.........why are there two gold ones next to each other........, there should be a red or green in between. Put the coloured lights on, not the white lights.....on and on.
I have put my home made decorations on the tree too and I love them! I will definitely make some more next year. so without further ado......
ta da.......

Here is my christmas quilt that I made last year....I like to put it up on the wall.

So that is that...
Now to prepare for Christmas day. DH went out tonight to buy the turkey for lunch he was quite obsessed about whether we would miss out if we left it closer to the day. We are stocked up with cranberry sauce....red currant jelly (we are going to attempt baked ham) and even berries for mum's favourite trifle.


Must share a photo of Coffee the wonder dog. We went to our club fun day yesterday and both dogs had an absolute ball. Here he is diving off the pool edge to fetch a ball. He nearly jumped all the way to the other side of the pool and then he would do a 'swimmers turn' off the side and swim out to return the ball. What a crack up!

Marina, your Christmas quilt is wonderful! Is it your own design? Coffee must have had a great time. Daisy, out granddog, would have loved it, she doesn't get much opportunity to swim.

What great action photos, Marina. Coffee is a "handsome" guy. Fun....
