Our Christmas Tree

While Simon was away with James and Eleanor, I decorated the tree. We have a Christmas tree farm only a few kilometres from home, and it never feels like Chiristmas until I can smell the pine needles. I've finally (almost) got enough baubles an snowflakes in blue and aqua and silver to do a one-colour tree. (Every year I start with these colours, but have always ended up adding in the reds, greens and golds as well!) I figure by next year there'll be no way to stop James helping - although he was quite happy for me to do it as a surprise this time. I haven't put the presents underneath yet, as they would have no chance with James and Eleanor - let alone Shadow and Cocoa. The fairy lights are up though, as is my amazing Christmas quilt from Margaret.

I'm so glad to see that a few people still hold out for a real tree. There's nothing like it. Yours looks beautiful with those blue, aqua and silver colors. Surely this tree belongs to a quilter with a great color sense!

Merry Christmas, Emma.
