More whitework

I will be rejoicing when the postman finally delivers my glasses which I left behind in the hotel when we went to Lincoln last weekend. Boy do I miss them. At the moment I'm 'making do' with my driving glasses and my close work glasses but my eyes are aching so not a lot of sewing has been going on. At last I managed to get some photos of my December journal page for the Contemporary Quilt group challenge. December's theme is based on the Andy Williams song "White Christmas" in particularly the line "tree tops glisten and children listen". I made the base the same way as I made the cards shown in the last post this time the thread I used to quilt was a multicoloured metallic one. Top picture is a detail of the JP.
This is the whole journal page, velvet pontsettia ribbon, fsl lace trees, beads, snowflake brads and glitter on the tree tops. This is the last one I've now completed the 2008 challenge and each one is based on a colour in a song.
We decided to update our old tv and bought a flat screen HD one that fits on the wall. You would not believe the amount of upheaval it caused or the number of spiders I had to evict. All the furniture had to be moved (hence the finding of the cobwebs, spiders, bits of last years xmas decorations - you get the picture) so that we could all see the tv from its new position on the wall. I'm worn out!!! and the whole thing is a bit overwhelming at the moment it looks so big but I'm sure I'll get used to it. We did have to throw some stuff out and the room does look larger so perhaps I'll go and watch it for a bit.
