Christmas and New Year

There is not much sewing going on around here, only a little by hand, so nothing really to show. I thought I would let you see some of my Christmas decorations, that I have made over the years. I usually put up a lot of wall hangings, but for some reason, I did not do that this year. I only put up the one shown above, which is my husband's favourite.

I have also included two pictures of us enjoying Christmas with our daft dog, Penny. I have on my hat, which I made for the Women's Institute Christmas hat competition. I got second prize.

We had our own turkey this year. We raised seven, and we will be having another for New Year.

I do hope you have a wonderful New Year and that all your dreams are fulfilled.

Thankful Thoughts

Turkey with streaky bacon roasted on top tastes wonderful!!


  1. How wonderful to see your smiling face and such a good photo of you and your husband. Your hat is a hoot too! That turkey looks pretty large and I bet home grown ones taste so much better, just like our home grown beef do.

    Happy New Year!

  2. Just looked at the photos again - your quilt is beautiful and the points are perfect!

  3. Love your wall hanging and hats!!!

    Turkey sounds wonderful!
