Advent Day 12

Christmas tree number 2, ours....

Why are Christmas trees so difficult to photograph, I couldn't get a good one last year either.

This year we will be geriatric nomads, visiting long lost friends, children and grandchildren, starting at the end of this week. There will be no Christmas dinner cooking for me, only helping, huray! It works well with a sudden aversion to the kitchen, which seems to have come on with age.

Instead I seem to spend most of my time trying to coax my beautiful sewing machine to do things it wasn't born to do, such as stitching without thread. Luckily for me a very wise person showed me how to trick it :-)

Thank you Kim from the Bernina Central forum.

And finally on this post that I'm pleased to say my children are enjoying, for once they know what Mum is up to, the daily sketch took on a shadowy them today, I seem to be obsessed with the effects of light at the moment.

Appologies for bad spelling I've yet to find the spellchecker on this App.

Never mind the spelling, the images are beautiful. Lovely tree, beautiful stitching and stunning sketches and sample. Lucky you to be nomadic this year - I am still chief cook but do have a bottle washer!
