Christmas Trees

Such a busy week but we did manage to put the Christmas tree up.
The little felt angels and choir boy I made when my daughter was small.
Out they come every year, a reminder of the time I spent at home before the children started school.
Yesterday evening I was at the Warwick Art Centre to watch sing along Mamma Mia, the film with subtitles for all the songs.
A group of us went and we decided to dress up !
My friend said that every one dresses up for sing along, so I made a real effort, rummaged through the dressing up box, and wore a sequined crochet skull cap, sequin top, flares with butterflies printed all over them and makeup seventies style, you know, lots of blue eyeshadow.
I didn't manage the silver boots though.
When we arrived at the cinema we were the only ones dressed up!
We did have a great time, lots of laughter, singing and dancing which is what we all needed, a real tonic when the days have been dark and cold.
To add to the Christmas cheer I have made a Christmas brooch.
Hope all your Christmas preparations are going well.
