Christmas in August?
Tonight we are going to a Christmas in August fundraiser……I know, I know…..the tradition is either Christmas in December or Christmas in July, but the local Rotary group were so busy with community fundraising last month, they had to postpone till now…..and guess who they called up for Santa duty? Mr Sugarlane got the duties….here he is practicing his ‘ho ho ho-ing’ this morning! Should be loads of fun…..Christmas dinner with all the spoils, and ‘Santa’ giving out presents. I’m really looking forward to getting some more ‘incriminating’ photos tonight! LOL And whilst we’re on the topic of Christmas, I’ve mentioned I’ve been busy designing six new stitcheries…..Christmas ones…..I’ll be sharing them with you very soon…..but here’s a quick look…. I was working on them last night. I’ll be making mine into a table runner but they can be stitched individually into bag panels, gift items etc…….but more about that later. Lots more has been happening here at Sugarlane…… some hexi making and now it’s beginning to warm up a bit and spring is certainly here in the north, I’ve been gardening and our crops are ready to be picked sooooo…. this beautiful bounty of rosellas, aka wild hibiscus flowers, (not the bird kind!) was harvested ready for jam-making tomorrow….it’s my favourite kind of jam! Not many left now! ….well, not at dad’s place anyway……I’m off to pick more from my garden because my plants are full to the brim too! Sugary hugs xox :o)
