Love those decs still..

Im quite sad at the thought of putting down this Christmas tree this year although i have vowed that it will stay up til the 12th night.

Heres a blurry photo of my chosen new dec..a Pukeko. I love them although I just learnt that they hunt down and kill baby ducklings :(

And here is a decoration given to Georgia when in one of her musicals this last year.

Oh here is the mostly comlpeted Christmas tree just needs a ribbon and a bell..

One of a few decs bought after Christmas for half price at Farmers..

And here is what inspired this posting tonight (apart from the fact that at elevan oclock at night it is still too hot too sleep!!) lovely tree. Im still lighting it up at night and the smell of pine though quite faint is still there. Its not so brown it looks awful and I think Ill be very sad on the 5th to pull it down. I feel so Christmasy still at night as it is on.
Happy humid night to you all..
Love Cherry

What great ornaments. My Christmas decs are down now (took down on the 31st) - but I'm planning already for next year. Glad you had a good New Year's!

Those ornaments are so pretty! I took all of mine down early because I don't have alot of space, but I can't wait to decorate when we get in the new house!

I found the measurements for the Windmill quilt!!!!! Each rectangle is 3inchs x 5 1/2 inches. I just measured mine, but you might want to make a sample block to make sure it works out for you. Not sure which measurement system that you use there.... :) I can't wait to see how yours turns out. I love making this pattern, it is the second one that I have made and they go together so easy and fast.
