To all who hold this season dear,
I extend my good wishes and Christmas cheer!
Where Love is , Christmas is in bloom
it fills your heart and every room
25 years ago when our house was lost to fire
40 years worth of my embroidery went as well.
To clear our daughter's head of engulfing flames,
we sent her to Europe and Canada to see relatives
and friends for a while instead. On her travels she
bought a piece of eaven weave and some coloured
threads and, starting at one corner, embroidered
this wonderful cloth for me designing as she went.
For an artist who paints with a very large brush , it
was a labour of love to constrain herself to meticulously
counting out and repeating for all four corners this
intricate design. (Please enlarge to see the twinkling
gold thread outlines). She came back for her father's
birthday (23rd, Dec.) with her Rucksack full of the
most wonderful Christmas decoratios so that, in our
unfinished house we had all the trimmings.
A detail that follows on from the corner
As the years have passed, she has taken more and
more of the weight from my shoulders. Christmas
eve with a feast at the farm below
Tatted snow flakes and wire bauble my
granddaughters have made for our little tree
A lesson in how to wrap presents: when faced
with a skateboard for your siblings, turn it into a
More magic from granddaughters, gingerbread with
icing coloured with raspberries, violets and other edibles
from the garde.
One just for me hanging on our tree
Let Angels descend from Heaven above
and shower the earth with incredible Love
Let Peace for once reign
on this planet of strife
and continue throughout
the rest of all Life.
A Merry Christmas to All who visit this site
and so I will wish you a very good night.
I raise my brimming cup to the MY WORLD
team once more and encourage you to tap on
