"There is a destiny that makes us brothers:
None goes his way alone:
All that we send into the lives of others
Comes back into our own."

Snow Dreams Tree Skirt

I just love my new tree skirt. The pattern is from Joanne Kerton at Canuck Quilter Designs. Paper-pieced snowflakes, of course!

The colours are not Christmasy, but they co-ordinate with the other colours in the room, including my favourite Christmas throw.


We have decorated for the holidays a little early this year. I am having knee replacement surgery this Friday, and want to be able to come home after surgery to a pretty house. 

I love my Jim Shore Santas and snowmen. Several of my pretty, and somewhat fragile, ornaments have perished over the years. At least these guys are sturdy. The Dutch and Scottish Santas are for my two  grandpas, and of course the Canadian Santa is for me.

I still have some Christmas baking to do, as well as the wrapping of gifts. I should definitely get busy!

                                             Merry Christmas, everyone.



  1. Your tree shirt is beautiful, Joanne's snowflake patterns are so pretty. Love the throw, too. Best wishes for your surgery, everyone I know who has had it done is very happy with the results. Merry Christmas!

  2. Thanks for sharing Sandy. Best wished for your surgery.

  3. Your tree skirt is truly beautiful; you did a great job with Joanne's pattern! Your Jim Shores Santas and snowmen are so special. I love my Jim Shores Nativity and Santa too. Good seeing your work again. Merry Christmas! ---"Love"
