It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas


This year, Miss Flowergaren and I decided we would try and MAKE a tree for Christmas.  There was much discussion, and not much encouragement from the the other flowers in the garden . . . but it didn't stop us.
We chipped away at our plan, and have come up with a lovely tree.  The other, not so encouraging flowers, had to eat some humble pie, as they had to agree, that we did a pretty good job!
It's beginning to look like Christmas around here.

Now reports are over, there has been the soft whirrr of the sewing machine, humming from my room.  I have finished a little cot quilt for my old boss, who has a new little grandson.


-I can almost "smell" the holidays approaching-

Ohmygosh! That tree is fantastic! Whatever did you use for your center -- the spine of an old tree maybe? You two are just the cleverest!

Well done. Influenced by those box thorn christmas trees from our past? I notice you did not promote the boys real trees. I am going to put my plastic one up today. Might take it outside and hose off any dust first.
I had to make one once for MADEC from rolly pollys carefully threaded on to a post cemented into a pot.
