Christmas Time

This is a very special Angel. It was made by my daughter when she was in kindergarten (5 years old) and has been on the very top of our Christmas Tree every year since! Notice the pink hair. The boys made angels too but their angels' hair was blue!

This is my cup cake stand. My son gave me a copy of a recipe for chocolate crackles (an Australian favourite) so I thought I would make some this Christmas, not that we needed another sweet treat added to what I have already made!
The candlestick cactus. Lovely colours. This cactus always flowers in December around Christmas time.

My Christmas plate. I wish everyone a happy Christmas enjoyed with family and friends.

This Angel I found at a fete. Someone had decided that they no longer needed the Angel so it was there for me to buy and take home and treasure. It hangs every year over the entrance to our lounge room doors.

My new Angel. I saw this Angel and I thought she would be a lovely addition to our Christmas Tree. I do not think you can have enough Angels!

Another favourite of mine are birds. This one is a pretty gold colour.

Another bird! The pretty pink colour took my eye.

Blinky Bill the Koala (an Australian fictional character). I bought this ornament a few years ago.

Christmas Fun

I was lucky enough to be one of the winners of a giveaway by Lyn Briggs from Moore Patchwork and Quilting of one of her patterns called Christmas Fun. Two nice little quilts for me to make. Thanks Lyn!
