at my house it has been busy lately and the christmas parties have started and so the decorating was up early ! this is my advent calendar, i will open the first door or window on december 1st of course.
and at the back door of my advent house a dear friend has left a beautiful blue bottle to help me through the hot summer, thanks dianne and paul
our stitching groups gathered together this week to party and kris kringle and there were lots of new friends arrived here at my home !
simone was very happy
i was very happy
gloria was a very happy cushion girl
and deidre was so happy, she was hugging her cushions !
a happy night was had by all and we meet again on the first sunday in december, just next sunday for another stitching day
i have been playing with with new 'bigshot' and these are the result of recycling some christmas cards from previous years into tree ornaments that will last forever, i love them
then on friday
i went to the airport to pick up a friend who was coming to stay for the weekend and saw the home grown christmas trees on the way there, have always liked these two houses perched up high on one of melbourne's busy roads, i was able to park opposite and kill a little time before i got onto the freeway, the traffic had been light and i was running early for the pick up in the fast lane !
amidst all the wires and the power pole and a policeman on his bike passing by stands this wonderful tree
we gathered together, another lot of stitching friends
the table was gorgeous and also the tree
and also the goodies to eat for lunch
and delicious treats
and lots of chat
and some laughs
and pressies too
and margery too
we all love margery !
the parties have definitely started, i will be back soon !
