Christmas jumpers

our darling little ones in their Christmas dresses, Sofia (left) and Lilly (right)
How was your Christmas - we had a houseful -17.5 to be precise.  Between us - 6 children, 4 partners, 5.5 grandchildren  plus Mike and I (another one due in April) and 1 great dane.

The whole family sporting their Christmas jumpers and new wellington boots for walking along the river in.

This is the first night, since Christmas eve that we have had the house to ourselves, and let me tell, I love seeing the children and grandchildren, but the peace and quiet this evening is wonderful.

More visitors tomorrow so its time for the sofa, a crackling fire and a good movie tonight.

I hope you all had a wonderful time - and here is wishing you a very Happy and Healthy New Year.

Happy Holidays

Just a little note to say

Hopefully I'll get some sewing done after Christmas.

Have a wonderful time whatever you are doing

lots of wildlife, beautiful sunsets but no sewing!

Dear Readers

Sadly this is not a sewing post because I haven't done any sewing.   As compensation here are some photos taken of our visitors who arrived about a week ago.  They are Brent Geese, there must be around 200 of them swimming in the creek and then flying into the field next door to graze.

Sunday 10 pheasants were running around the garden and last but certainly not least we have been blessed with the most beautiful sunsets.  These pictures have not be enhanced or edited, this was the colour of the sky.

I have two projects that I need to try and finish before Christmas, a quilt for little Lilly who was born in May and I also need to embroider the name on Xmas stockings for our 2013 babies, but that may not happen until after the 20th (no pressure then).

In the meantime, we are still unpacking, clearing, and getting the house ready to accommodate 16 for Christmas.

Catch you later.
