Missus H. told me I have a cousin in my new abode. When she went out I went to look for him. I met lots of lovely, friendly inhabitants but alas, no cousin :( Where he go to we don't know!!!!
Missus H. said she made the nativity set. She took a class with Grandma H. She said that the nativity set is about the birth of someone called Jesus. He is very important person to all Christians and many other peoples. The family is reading Luke and stories from Happy Tales to You Christmas book. I am learning a lot.

A few days ago my new residence moved. Missus H. said she preferred it in the corner by the fireplace. I live on the 6th level and I hope I don't have to look down too far!!!!
Missus H. says I have to say "Hope you all have a Merry Christmas" .... whatever that is. Oh, she says it's a big, special holiday so to rejoice. I think I can do that.

I like looking at the photographs at http://gipsygardencollection.blogspot.com/
She also has a nice tutorial on how to make rick-rack flowers for those of you who have buckets of the stuff :)

I'm in the middle of decorating our trees. I enjoy taking out the ornaments from their boxes and remembering times past. I made both of these. The red one was a motif taken from a Christmas stocking in the "A Merry Christmas in Cross-Stitch" by Better Homes and Gardens (1994) I made 12 as gifts for all our family members i.e. parents and siblings.
The log cabin one is tiny 2"x2" and was not originally intended as an ornament but I liked it so much I wanted to use it as one.
