It is not what we take up, but what
we give up that makes us rich.
-Henry Ward Beecher.
Hello to you all, I'm a bit late with Colourful Friday. Our computer just
decided not to work, so every few hours I checked it out. It's times like these
when you wish back the Pony Express or horse and cart!
My collection of Colourful things is of course Christmas theme items. I am mad
on bags and at Christmas time have the best time making bags from Christmas
I have just found the most fabulous Christmas material. A lovely green background
and pretty Christmas symbols splashed over it. Last year I made a special bag for me, here it is.
Of course there had to be buttons on it! It just wouldn't be right. Some more wonderful colours found for Christmas.....
My much treasured Christmas decorations spread all throughout the house just put me in the mood for the
festive season. In our lounge room, across the mantle are reds, greens, white, and an aray
of other beautiful colours.
And just under the mantle hangs the stockings of two most special boys in the world, Brandon and Cory.
My antique Pixie is also special, but in a different category!! All come under the umbrella of love.
Every Christmas my favourite wall quilt comes out and is proudly presented in our hallway. I made this several years ago and just love it to pieces
It has a few panels to it and each is very special to me.
I love the patchwork colours around the stitchery. I was stoked to find such material.
And for my new dolls that I have been busily making....
As my silly computer was not doing the right thing today,
I am now going to skip over to Robyn's blog and see
what the other players have to show for
Kind regards, Anita.
