Everything's ready

The frenzy over

Lovely gifts handed around
Like my gorgeous red Gummies

Home made goodies

A little blue birdie

A favourite book

All over for another year.

A time of quiet and prayer

My prayers and thoughts are with the families and those affected by the terrible tragedy in America.
 I will not be blogging  this week as a sign of  respect for those dear people. My heart is aching for you all.

Christmas Tea Cosy and Tea station

I have seen lots of lovely tea/coffee stations around blogland
and redid mine for Christmas
I thought a nice Christmas tea cosy would be appropriate.

I used a piece of wool blanketing I had on hand
and embroidered it freehand with some holly 
and writing

I thought this pretty floral cotton would look nice as the lining

I placed the lining right sides together with the embroidered piece
then placed a piece of wadding over this

Machine stitched around the edges leaving a small opening for turning

Turn right side out and invisible stitch the opening closed
Fold in half and add ribbon ties at the side.

Tea/Coffee station
Everything on hand

Then I made some Chocolate fudge for gifting to friends
I think it's nice to take something sweet with a bottle of wine
when invited to Christmas lunches.
I'll cut it into little squares and package it up nicely

I'll add a ribbon and note and I think we're done

Have a lovely decorating, baking week
