Santas coming !!

Santa's coming but this giant Santa wouldn't get down the chimney and just to give you some scale here he is with Jenny.

He is on the hill behind Dobbies Garden centre beside Newcastle airport and must be seen by all the passengers taking off and landing there. I hope the reindeer steer well clear of the runway when they come to collect him on Christmas Eve.

The Christmas tree is up - quite traditional with red and gold baubles but this year they are hung in clusters of 3 - ( an idea we stole from a tree at Slaley Hall but quite effective )Jenny has had a busy week. Here she is at the school awards ceremony being presented with an award for food technology by the Headmaster.

And I have been sewing gift bags - to save the planet from wrapping paper I have made a few of these reuasable shopping bags to put gifts in.
And finally that Tilda apple I made ages ago found its place as a Christmas table decoration.

Happy quilting and a Happy Christmas too xx
