Oh, indeed it IS the most wonderful time of the year! The Christmas tree and decorations are up, the chrissie tunes are on full rotation and craft-upon-crafty-ideas are wafting through the air! While visiting my local shopping centre this morning, I couldn’t help but smile to myself when I caught a lyric or too of a crooning Christmas carol over the PA system – all the while dodging shoppers with trolley loads of presents mind you!
FYI, I hate crowds. Especially those with a fanatical/crazy buzz to them. I just feel like shouting out: It’s okay people, the world won’t run out of toys!!
Today is also a wonderful day as I finished my Jacob’s Ladder Quilt! I had planned to finish it once the craziness of Christmas was over but my impatience gave in. I oddly experienced a very weird rush of enthusiasm and patience to simply sit quietly and finish hand-tacking the binding. Even Lucy, my dog, was overtaken with a quiet patience as she snuggled and snored next to me through out the whole process (this is a behaviour rarely seen from her).
I made an ‘arty’ effort of taking some lovely photos to share with you – showcasing the front and back – while dodging pesky buzzing bees and shooing little flower flies from attempting to crawl down my top. I also managed to avoid the spider webs that were trailed across our Colour Bond fence, picked sticky flower petals out of my hair, while ensuring the sun didn’t blind me as I avoided overexposing my photos – Phew!
Happy Sewing! xx
