T'was the night before Christmas and the air was hot and dry.
All but one of nine lay their heads, while one snuck by
to plant a special gift under the Christmas tree
with a skip, a smile and a heart full of glee.
This quilt has taken almost a year to create
and almost didn't happen due to a little mozzie mate
Thank goodness for the kindness of many new and old quilting friends of mine
That MiL's quilt was finished just in the St. Nick of time
For even though a little elf (me) let it slip
and gave her MiL a little peek
I hope that when she sees the final gift
It will give her a heart a generous lift
A special Christmas wish is sent from my heart
to ALL of you that took part
in the finishing of this quilt
You have saved me from being full of UFO guilt!
Now the prawns are shelled and the lobster split for the Christmas BBQ
A classic Aussie spread for our visiting English rellies, we are determined to do
We'll throw in a turkey in case they have a homesick panic attack
Dessert will be a fruit topped Pavlova and a Gingerbread Outback Shack
There'll be bombies in the pool and sparkling drinks
And a snooze on the couch me thinks
I'll end my attempt at rhyming here
and send you all best wishes and some good ol' Aussie Christmas Cheer!
Merry Christmas everyone :)
|Thank you to the random strangers in the park that held the quilt up!|
