Christmas parties .....

Dearest Mom and Dad
Sorry about the lack of blogging lately - my mind has been elsewhere!!
Here are a few photos of the Christmas gatherings I gave been to ...... No particular order - just  snippets .......................

I know I look like a little devil with my reindeer antlers - they looked much better on Jane!!!


This little gingerbread man was made for me by Jacoba and Debbie - they baked some too.....


I received some lovely gifts from the "Crazy" girls - one being a home grown cucumber????? Jokes aside it was delicious....................
Our Christmas party at Buderim was fun - the theme was "The night before Christmas" - so we went in our pj's and we took along some of our toys etc.  Vaughn and I have been cleaning out the shed - we came across a box with a lot of Button's dolls - has been in the shed for 10 years - typical Vaughn he spent days washing them for Button - they were full of mould and stuff. So I took a basket of dolls to the party. Can you believe that "Pretty Sue" the cloth doll on the left that I made for Button was full of mould - I soaked her in Nappysan - look how good she looks!!!


I won a prize for the smallest teddies - remember when I used to make small teddies??? I think you have a few..........

Letitia really made an effort for the party - blue eyeshadow, curlers, ciggie etc

Jane loves the antlers!!!

This is Jane's teddy - "born in 1957" - her Mom removed the eyes because she was scared Jane would choke on them. It is the cutest, cutest, cutest bear - all worn from love.............


Letitia sucking her thumb - no comment!!!!

Looking sexy - "I said Love, I said Pet, I said Darl"





In between all this I got the scrap quilt done - I do love the colours of this - so all my scraps are cut up and used!!!!

Jacoba and Debbie also made this gingerbread tree for our "Crazy" Christmas gathering.............

How clever are these roses made from oranges????

I am sightly addicted to these - cherries dipped in choc!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Debbie's colourful Christmas table..............

Ella enjoyed the gingerbread men ...................

Still laughing at all the comments regarding this cucumber!!!!!!!!

Margret at Kim's gathering..................
