Getting ready

Festive countdown started some time ago and I feel already exhausted of all the merryment. But like every year, I'll survive. Among eveything I managed to complete the 12 blocks for the corners of the Lonestar quilt and even the multicoloured strip for the border, but the biggest part of my time had been filled with Christmas cards. DIY cards always had been a tradition in my family so as a devoted traditionalist I just carry on on keeping appearances.

I'm not very well equiped this year - with all the moving around I lost somewhere the box with tempera so I needed  improvise with water colours and a jar of a really crappy white and sheets of chalk paper.

It's like mixing whisky, champagne and mushy peas together in hope to make a brilliant cocktail.

These things happen, you know.

Durate et vosmet rebus servate secundis! 

Whatever, it's time to enjoy! And as this year we celebrate in Coventry then there is special treat - the city's personal carol!
