Let Christmas commence
I decided that as December has arrived, I should go up into the attic and bring out the Christmas decorations so I could put a few things up around the house. First, the two meeces I already had came out to join Green Mouse in the celebrations.
The wallhanging I quilted (such tiny stitches) a couple of years ago also came out to share the celebrations and is hung over the bookcase in the sitting room. Below: a detail.
I shan't go mad just yet, but it's nice to have some of the trappings of Christmas about the place.
I will keep this brief as I'm still not feeling anything like 100%. I will be glad when we can get my asthma medication sorted and next week's heart tests out of the way. All I want to do right now is sit down and read my Phil Rickman book.
Anyway, No. 1 son is coming tonight and will do the Brecon Militaria Fair with Keith tomorrow, as I don't feel up to it. I will potter here, catch up with the Archer's Omnibus, and do some sewing. I am still trying to get quilts finished for Christmas.
This morning we had a wander round the little Vintage Fair at Llandeilo, and chatted with friends, before going on to the Unit to put some nice things in for Christmas. November was dire, so let's hope December is an improvement or . . . well, we won't go there just yet.
Finally: a not very exciting photo of the Beany Soup!!
