Christmas Colours with Robyn




This will be my 26th Christmas with children...27th  with my husband....I have never been big on decorations...I do a little but my quilting has always been more important....but each year the  decorations that I do have become even more special than the year before....they are filled with memories of my children growing up and the wonderful friends and family we have...here are a few of my favorite things....and to answer Robyn's question ...What is my favorite Christmas song? Little Drummer Boy  by Neil Young and Johnny Cash...

Check out Robyn's blog Colorful Friday's...she organizes all this fun...http://daisyquilts.blogspot.com/

Merry Christmas to everyone...hope you are enjoying each  and every day of this joyful season....

  4. Lots of lovely Christmas colour. I think it is great when each decoration has a special family memory. It really adds to the delight of Christmas. Gorgeous fabrics and quilts, too.
    I always love the snowmen but I must admit to being impressed by the Christmas flamingos.
