CHRISTMAS WISHES





I WISH EVERYONE A HAPPY AND SAFE CHRISTMAS AND A JOYOUS NEW YEAR!

MAY 2009 BRING EVERYONE ALL THAT THEY WOULD WISH FOR.

I DID promise to post some pics of my decorations but have simply ran out of time. The quilt in the photograph is one I designed and made way back in the very early 90's. Not a terribly good photograph but it is still part of my decorations. It hangs in the loungeroom and for want of a better title is called "Knight Christmas" :) I've added more quilting in the background since the pic was taken and it DOES hang a lot better! LOL Port is almost packed, Megs has been deposited at the cattery (the owner is a real softie with cats so perhaps he won't want to come home to us!) and we fly out of Cairns at around 11am, I think, and arrive in Newcastle at 5.30pm their time. It's going to be very special to spend Christmas with Matt in his home - he even said he'd buy a Christmas tree! :) Unfortunately Kirsten has to work so won't get to see her again this year. Until I post again (we arrive home on 8th January) I hope everyone has a relaxed time and also hope Santa is kind to you all! Love and best wishes,

PS. Have to add that here in Queensland a suitcase is often called a port. LOL I wasn't just packing a bottle of port to take with me! :)

To Erin....so glad it arrived safely! :) AND, glad you liked it too! You are most welcome and will look at your blog when I get home. We leave tomorrow...it's been great visiting Matt but also looking forward to getting home again too. Stay Safe, Jan xx

Hi Sweetheart....yes, and I missed having you help me put them all up too! Seemed like something was missing somehow...WILL take pics when I get back home, time just got away from me. Will also make sure I get a pic before Dad takes down the lights too. He didn't as much this year because of being away but he extended down the side of the house for our AL BBQ so that was different AND looks good too! Love you!
