Merry Christmas 2010

Hello friends, fellow tatters and other followers...
It is a cold, gray morning here in battatterland. But, it is also Christmas Eve! We are supposed to get just a little snow, which will make the day more lovely, and also give it the 'feel' of Christmas. I love snow, and don't even mind shovelling it too much. I have all of my Christmas shopping and decorating finished, as of a couple of days ago, and since then it has been a time of relaxation. I actually did NOTHING (well except the normal cleaning and cooking) work related. I did some tatting, and some knitting.. nice day.
Today, I may make some fudge. As I write this, I am listening to favorite Christmas albums. Right now, it is Gene Autry.. Rudolph the Red nosed Reindeer! Earlier, it was the Elvis Christmas album. Later, it will be the Kingston Trio.  I have a bunch of really old albums from my childhood, and I have transfered them onto my computer, so I can listen anytime I wish. I sort of like them better this way, with the bit of record scratching on them as compared to redone perfect cds. It sounds more real, and the way I remember it.
So, here is my wish for all of you..
Have a very relaxing, wonderful and fun Christmas from Rebel and me!

Rebel ornament

For some reason, 'blogger' wouldn't let me edit the last post, so,
here is an updated photo of the ornament.
I also have been working on a super secret pattern. I just got it finished, but have to test it a bit more.
Here's a clue, anyone like the Princess Bride?

New ornament.. not tatted

I just finished this ornament of Rebel! I had a hard time getting him glued on, but finally did it. Though I thought it was finished, I now want to give him a little Santa hat or something else Christmasy. But, until then... cute huh?

Oh Christmas Tree, oh Christmas Tree..

 Here it is! I finally put up my tree with all my Christmas Challenge ornaments on it. I added three more, a snowflake, a Tardis, and another bear to make the 30 I decided on. Also, to make it different, I only put antique, or at least pretty old, ornaments on it.

And, of course, what would Christmas be with out a visit to Santa? Rebel finally got to have his
picture taken with Santa this year. Our local Humane Society set it up, and I just love it!
