This morning we decided that Christmas was coming, whether we wanted it to or not, so Mr Fixit and I got the trees out and got decorating. That really means, he checked the lights and then found something else to do in his workshop while I got decorating. Being somewhat minimalist in my tastes, it really didn't take too long. There are two more trees, one in the dining room and one in the hall, but they are more "sculptural" so they don't get decorated, just plugged in. We've just been out in the wind and rain and strung lights over 3 bushes and round my father's porch, and that's it. Christmas sorted. Apart from wrapping that is. All the cards are done and sent, the food's all ordered, so now Christmas can happen.
Yesterday was my quilt group's Christmas party ( you can pop over and read all about it here if you like. I'll wait.) and we all had fun making key fobs
This was mine, and I've just noticed that the ribbon is sewn on all wonky! I'm sure it was straight, so I reckon one of the Christmas elves popped in overnight and did that.
It was also the Grand Handing Out of the name badges, and here are some of them. I love how different they all are.
