I enjoy Christmas, mostly for the family traditions and habits that it involves. Ours started yesterday with putting up the stitched advent calendar, packing off the presents to Australia and spending more time that would seem possible finding the Christmas quilt. The excuse was that it hadn’t been out for two years as were in Australia for Christmas last year.
The wonderful Gina Ferrari is attempting an advent blog, with a post every day through to Christmas – she is really superwoman.
PS if you know anyone who is a beginner quilter, I can recommend “Ultimate Quilting Bible” edited by Marie Clayton – and not only because my Christmas quilt is in it.
