North Pole Annex part 2:
Well, we’ve made it … finally … to the other end of the house from whence we began three weeks ago [ and this year I managed to resist throwing a ‘Lo!’ into that sentence to go with the whence. I do hope you appreciate my linguistic restraint ]
Christmas is officially less than two hours away, so I made it by the skin of my teeth.
Here we are in the rumpus room with:
a quilt or two
two more Christmas trees [ and please note the knitted bells. I saw someone wearing these as a brooch last Saturday night, and with a couple of slight modifications, have been in bell making mode all week. – I’ll probably make more for next year ]
Maybe some seasonal cushions
and anyone suggesting that I bought the green couch [sofa] and the burgundy and green rug with an ulterior motive in mind wouldn’t be considered totally unreasonable.
Kookaburras, koalas, wallabies, kangaroos, echidnas … and a wee little blue wren who was just a bit too realistic and got ‘killed’ by Sophie cat. He doesn’t have wings anymore, poor little man, but at least the cats are leaving him alone now
Okay, so that’s not everything that I could show you in that room but I figure there have to be limits. I don’t want to be responsible for you all wandering round tomorrow with glazed expressions and your brains melting out of your ears.
I hope that you’ve all enjoyed your visit. If you missed any of it, the rest of the links are in the previous post here.
Have a joyous and safe Christmas, and come back to visit soon.
1 hour and 30 minutes [ if you haven’t finished the shopping, you may now proceed to panic ]
