Merry Christmas 2012

Unfortunately we had a blackout for 7 hours on Christmas Eve and I didn't get to post a "Merry Christmas" to all!!!   So I do hope your Christmas Day was a wonderful celebration with family and friends!   Our morning was great but the afternoon deteriorated when my father in law (aged 91) had a turn and had to take a trip to hospital via ambulance.   Not quite the day we had planned, but he is home now and feeling better .... this is earlier in the day .... Dadeda with Chelsea and Ashleigh!

We had a lovely day and the man of the house was given a stand up paddle board to play on .... here he is with son-in-law Tim, Ash and Chelsea ...

We enjoyed a lovely morning ....

Nala was a bit sad when all the presents had disappeared from under the Christmas Tree !! 

I received a beautiful patchwork and appliqué table runner from Siri as part of Chookyblue's Secret Santa Christmas Swap which is just gorgeous - thank you Siri!! 

A close up of the perfect appliqué work .... and lovely colours of the fabrics ....

And so from my family (me, Elliott, Chelsea, Ashleigh, Sam and David to yours ....

I hope your day was merry and bright and hope you had or are having a .... Merry Christmas .... (thank you again Meredith for this gorgeous stitchery) ....
