The Day After Christmas

I love my Spode Christmas China... settled in on my French China Cupboard.

I am being totally lazy today.  Not even dressed at noon!!  But I do have fabric drying right now in preparation for cutting out a daygown.

I'm going to let it stay there awhile and continue to use and enjoy it.

I will love beginning the Daygown (actually I am preparing fabric for three different Daygowns!)
And I have ordered a Stock Pot for soups (on sale - free shipping) that I have been dying to own for months.  
So that is something productive!

This ornament was made by my sister and is a picture of my parents taken in the war years.  They were newly married during WW2.  Notice my father is wearing a Army Air Core uniform.

I have a toasty fire downstairs in the fireplace and I look forward to stitching Tucks as I sit near it.

And I wish to all my Sewing Friends much Joy in this coming year.

"Rejoice in the Lord; again I will say, rejoice!"
Philippians 4:4

Isn't it nice to be lazy the day after the holiday . . . and eat lots of leftovers, and look at the gifts, and you don't have to take the tree down yet, and all the madness is over? Beautiful tea arrangement! Love it!

Sounds like a perfect day! I love my Spode Christmas Tree china, too. Makes even cold cereal more festive!

Love your blog. My father in law was also in the Army Air Corps, he was a Flying Tiger, had to bail out over China, MIA for a month as he and comrades made their way back to safety, all at age 19. Such brave young men.
