Yep....another year older today. I know this may seem hard to believe, but I was actually up for almost an hour before I remembered! I've been so focused on Christmas that the day nearly past me by. Mr. VW and the J's reminded me with a lovely birthday song and a marvelous parcel of scrumtious yarn!
Anyway, this is really a Christmas post as I am quite delighted with my tree this year and I just had to share. Of course it looks way better in real life!!! The tree is just about all the decorating we do, although outside the house has a few pathetic lights on the front verandah.
One Little Christmas Quilt complete - quite happy with this, although don't look too closely at the crap hand stitching!
One Dozen snowflake ornaments from Lucy's tutorial!
One Middle J handmade stocking - I made this when I was on maternity leave after the arrival of Little J.
One Lovely (fake) Tree!
I realize that as much as I wanted to post the photo of the stocking, I couldn't come up with a creative way to cover up Middle J's real name - but I just love the way the stocking turned out so many years ago, I posted it anyway. So the gig is up - three boys with J names. Big J (James), Middle J (Jacob) and Little J (Jack). Not even the least bit intentional. Complete coincidence.
