o what a lovely morning!
the spirit of Christmas is sneaking
into some of the most hardened of hearts ...
there are whispered conversations
where treats and surprises are planned!
the small and the curious are trying to peek
and asking too many questions is banned!
i've been busy already today
up at the crack of dawn,
taking my brother to the train station
and reminding him to take my presents
to family on the other side of the ditch...
to the land of the long white cloud!
i called in at macca's for coffee
and got sewing as soon as could be!
i thought i'd finish off my Christmas cushion...
a charm square front
'12 days of Christmas' by kate spain...
just all the aqua ones!
...adding jingle bells to Christmas elves!
...some georgeous rich red rosey fabric
given to me from miss b
for the back.
and this sweet cushion
will make some little corner of my house
sing 'fa la la la' and 'jingle bells'
on what would have been 'silent night' s!!!
i hope you've had a tiny bit of time to spare
to finish off little bits of Christmassy fun
here and there...
