Wow! What a welcome for this week’s mid week Log Cabin Retreat!

Nice one.


Another stunning design!

Our clocks must be working double time to keep up with the calendars. The last few weeks we have been living one day at a time, with plans sometimes changing several times a day. In theory,  life will settle back into some sort of routine soon.

When our children were little we took them to the major Christmas pageant in the state one year. The next year they had to settle for watching the pageant on television, but while they were watching I set up the Christmas tree.

As Father Christmas arrived at the Magic Cave we were invaded by all the other children in our street who didn’t go to the pageant, and between them they had the tree decorated in about five minutes. The youngest put decorations on the bottom, the older ones decorated the top, and the ones in the middle ages decorated the middle of the tree. To save fights about who added the star to the top of the tree I did that, and then turned on the lights. 

Since then I have started putting up decorations on Pageant Day … until this year. I haven’t started yet, as we have been preparing for a garage sale, which was postponed due to circumstances way beyond our control. The items which were already sorted stayed in their boxes in whatever corner of the house they resided so that access to the places where the tree and other decorations were stored, and where they will be displayed, was blocked.

This weekend the unwanted items will go out to the garage for the sale, and Christmas will arrive in our real life, not just in my virtual world!

    Christmas is definitely for children. I rarely put up a tree anymore. I love this weeks selection of Log Cabins. Christmas colours too.


    • Marie,

      The kid in me still loves Christmas trees and all the other decorations. I have some untested ideas to make more trees too!

      I like these Log Cabin designs too, and tend to like red and white without the green.
