Christmas is Coming

It’s official – Christmas is coming, and in our part of the world, Summer has now arrived.  Together with the Silly Season too, and all the various Christmas break ups from the groups we are involved with.  Tomorrow we have two – a birthday/Christmas lunch out with one group of friends, then an evening dinner date with friends from our village.

So it was time to get the festive quilts out and get into Christmas spirit.  These ones have recently been put up in the sitting room.  And as I took some photos, I realised that all three have stitchery on them!  Long time readers will no doubt have seen them before.

On the coffee table – Jingle Table-runner, Red Brolly design

As we are going away in the caravan on Boxing Day, we have decided not to put any Christmas lights up outside this year.  So it will just be Christmassy inside our little home this year.  How is your Christmas decorating going?

Lovely quilts. Christmas is speeding toward us. I have lights up and not sure if we will have out of town visitors for Christmas. After years of letting Christmas rule, I welcome a quiet holiday this year.
Merry Christmas to you!
xx, Carol

I have a few decorations out - a small tree, a Nativity set, Advent wreath and candles, and some greenery.

I'm slow on reading blogs lately. Your home is looking very festive with your handcrafted decorations. We have our decorations up, but no photos yet.
