Well, my husband decided to put the Christmas tree up early this year. Apparently the tree lighting in Martin Place means our tree can go up. Using his theory, we could probably start putting up decorations in October. I should explain that he did not grow up in Australia, or really celebrate Christmas growing up. For the first 6 years or so that we were together he would ask the same question every year.... "Which day do we have to give presents?". I think he 'gets' the present thing now, as I am sure he hears me answering the same question from James.
The tree going up definitely put the wind up me though...... so much to do, so little time.
First up, I needed to finish the stocking for Layla.
Then I finished some Christmas bunting.
And a dress for Layla (although this is not the official photograph, just a happy snap that Alex took).
After all that I needed to sew something for myself (I get selfish like that). A dress. Yet to be photographed.
Finally, I thought I would add in a picture of a drawing that my husband completed. It will be going to a family member for a Christmas present. Apparently the pencils he is using aren't the 'right' pencils though, so he is getting new pencils for Christmas.
The next few weeks are going to be a sewing frenzy. I have completed some Christmas presents, but still have a long way to go.
