December 18th 2012

Merry Christmas Everyone.

This Christmas for us  is very different. Steve is away 3 or 4 days a week working on a friends house in Pahia, an hours drive away so he stays over to get more done.
He goes on my days off and is home when I am working - Kelly has company most days - but it doesn't feel very festive for us this year.

No Christmas tree this year as when DH is home he works on our house so we decided we didn't need a dusty tree to clean and pack away.
My Red December table Runner will come out plus a Christmas tablecloth but that's it for us this year as I have Christmas Eve day and Christmas day off work, then back to work right through New Year, while my DH will be helping friends shift  into their new house.

I so wish I had belonged to Esther's group for the 12 days of Christmas Wall hanging.
Those I have viewed are just stunning, Congratulations!!!

I found a little bit of Christmas spirit visiting Carol Doaks BOM group and have made her Shooting Star Block with fabric left over from Red December.

Can't show more photo's as DH took our camera to capture his progress in Pahia for the owners but am now making some of Carol's 3" Christmas ornaments to make a small paper pieced wallhanging - probably for next Christmas as the days are flying by and I am back at work on Thursday!!!!

Am also adding your blogs to my reading list so that I can stay up to date with what everyone is doing
Again a Very Happy Chrismas and New Year to everyone.
Hugs, Jenny


  1. Love your Red December table runner and your new block. When I am taking my tree down and puttting the house back I will be thinking of you sitting with a cuppa or a glass of wine. Hugs bunny

  2. What a gorgeous Red December table runner that is.

    We don't have a Christmas tree either, as our British Shorthair boy EATS the lights.

    Wishing you and your loved ones a Merry Christmas (despite) all the work and a happy and healthy New Year 2013.

    Thank you for your lovely comments on my blog.

  3. That block is stunning! I understand how you feel. We don't have any little ones to bring joy to the holidays but we enjoy all the decorations and making new ones. Have a Merry Christmas.
