Just have to show you the lovely lace Christmas card that my partner sent to me from Australia. It is Idrija lace style bell pattern. She did a nice job and I have it hanging with our other cards.
I am not sure if she has received my card yet. Mail is slow everywhere! You can see the 2010 Arachne Christmas card entries on Jenny Brandis’ website HERE. My card is already listed there. Here is my entry that I sent to Wendy
It is tatted with Coron Cotton size 160 in white. The lace is reminiscent of a German style ornament and can be detached from the card to be hung. A 7mm silk ribbon of green is tied in a bow at the hanger. It measures 5.5cm x 4cm. Elements used are pearl tatted chains with rings and tatted leaf tallies.
I used my wife’s scrapbooking materials to make the card. FUN! Here is the inside of the card
Last night we had some of our friends and their families over for a Christmas party and dinner. It was great fun and kids were running all over the place. And we loved it!!! We don’t get much chance to have kids around too often. We could have just had our friends call their baby sitters so we could have just the adults over, but I feel this time of year is for families and children are a major focus(in our eyes). I am sure the parents of these kids could have used a break……screaming kids and all, because they deal with it everyday. But everyone still had a good time and Kim made a wonderful dinner!
Now to finish making the rest of the Christmas presents before we have Christmas with my family Friday morning. We also have to get into our camper and fix it up and restock because we will be heading down to Kim’s family Christmas near Nashville on Friday after my family’s Christmas. Yes we will be camping……..BUT……..not in the cold midwest. We, along with Kim’s folks and brother and family will all be taking our separate campers to stay at a state park in FL!!! Hopefully the weather will be nice and at least be in the 60s F. I will put my feet in the water and stroll the beach no matter what. And of course take some morning time to do running on the beach. Been looking forward to that for a long time!!
Until next time I post………..
