Yes, advent is on us again. Each year seems to speed up the older I get. When I was 6 it was an eternity from one Xmas to the next.
So I have 5 chook pin cushions sewn ready for Xmas presents.
I think they look better with tail feathers so I am on the look out for some unusual pins.

This year I have decided to include some carols on my blog. This is a beautiful traditional Swedish Carol and I have included a rough translation into English.
Christmas, Christmas, radiant Christmas, shine out over the white woods,
Crowns of heaven with sparkling light, shimmering arcs into all the houses of God,
A hymn which is sung from age to age, the eternal yearning for light and peace.
Christmas, Christmas, radiant Christmas, shine out over the whilte woods.
Come Come, blessed Christmas.
Lower your white wings over the blood and clamour of strife,
over all groaning from the human breast,
over the generations who have gone to their rest.
Come, Come, blessed Christmas. Lower your white wings.
