MORE.. and NO IT WON'T FALL DOWN STEW!

... UP CLOSE... I asked a 'professional' Christmas Tree Decorator in the States (thanks Teresa) for suggestions for our tree... and she said "When you think it's finished, add 50 more things!".... so I will then!
Stew thinks it's going to fall down due to the weight soon.. but I don't think so... it's a really robust tree.

TODAY: hmmmm... not sure really. Not a lot to do around here at the moment... though there is some (nah .. lot's) of weeding that needs doing. I hate weeding, but then so does Stew... so maybe I will do a bit? Miracles have be known to happen....

ABOVE: Next bag on the go...quite a shitty shape, curving in at the top.. might not do THAT again!

WHICH BUTTON?????? Round or Square????????


I just can't make up me mind on this one!

ONWARD.... Oh how sad! It's raining... I can't WEED... so.......I will go SHOPPING instead! ha ha ha...

Well.. apart from one lonely soul (FROGGY!).. The whole lot of you are saying go with the ROUND button! So I will then!

I went shopping, met up with me darling man for lunch... and now after being out and about for 4 hours.. it's time to relax for a mo! Phew, shopping is like a workout I'm sure.

ABOVE: in these bags... the 50 extra tree decorations we NEEDED... and I saw some really cute Firemen selling their 2010 Calendars in the mall... and Stew bought one for me....
BECAUSE I really do need a calendar don't I??? Ha ha ha!
I've just put the latest decorations on my tree.. and I think it's finished! I am knackered from doing it... I have NEVER covered a tree like this before...I will show ya tomorrow!
End of Day: well I've done sweet fanny all this evening! I watched Coronation Street, now I'm watching Packed to the Rafters, which I love too... and I'm doing nothing more. I am being a lazy tart eh? lol
NO sewing today at all! wow. nite nite.

  3. Hi Chris

    Still reading everyday but term 4 reports and Christmas concerts mean that I hardly blog or comment :-(. Anyway . . . just stopped in to tell you that I think your tree is AMAZING and as far as buttons go, I reckon round, definitely.

  5. Definitely the round green one. They are so beautiful Chris. Hey have a look at sberrymum blog. She made some little bags for Xmas pressies for her group. I thought they could be done same way as yours with your pretty stitches.

  13. Round button! Matches the colours better and reflects the curve at the top.

    Shame about the weeding! Enjoy the shopping.

    What a great web log. I spend hours on the net reading blogs, about tons of various subjects. I have to first of all give praise to whoever created your theme and second of all to you for writing what i can only describe as an fabulous article. I honestly believe there is a skill to writing articles that only very few posses and honestly you got it. The combining of demonstrative and upper-class content is by all odds super rare with the astronomic amount of blogs on the cyberspace.
