Xmas is getting too close too quickly.....Why didn't I do all those jobs earlier? Now it is getting too late. How many people are "ready".
I have been putting off looking at the tree to see that all was well, and if the decorations needed a spruce up. Fortunately I had sealed it up pretty well in a sheet, so no little nasties from over at "the farm" were able to get in. Each year I try to make a new decoration, but this year has got away, so maybe next year.
The designs for the ones I have made are probably familiar to many of you.
Anyway Tuesday night I "bit the bullet" and did the tree, and am glad I did. It looks nice over in the corner and there is an air of Xmas feelings in the unit now. I have even found a new outfit to wear on Xmas Day.

Out of all of these the very easiest is the plum pudding which is just a circle of calico tied over a foam ball and decorated. Although the decorated pine cones were fun to make, even though while collecting the cones I had a mother bird swooping me so she must have had chicks nearby.
