What a lovely time you all will have! Everything looks beautiful and your friends are very lucky to count you in their blessings. So sorry to hear that the fires are still burning. Will keep you all in our prayers. Hugs. Nan
Thanks so much Nan, yes they are a real worry. My eyes are constantly irritated! Love Chris
This is a delightful table and I am sure you will have a wonderful time. Please give Meg and extra hug for me.
Thanks Chris, I am sure I will too, I will send Meg your regards. Love Chris
So very nice Chris. I know it's going to be a great time for all.
Thanks Miss Lillian, I just pray it's not too hot.
We have had the most dreadful bushfires all up the east coast of NSW and also into Queensland and as I speak I'm looking out my back room and there is an eerie glow of orange and yellow making everything look weird. The atmosphere is full of smoke and people who have asthma have been asked to stay inside. Love Chris
Awesome have fun:):)
Thanks Carolyn, I will definitely try, Love Chris
Thank You for the invite, if only to peek. Sew worth it. Beautiful again. Wish you and friends the best of time. Sandy. Love the quilt.
Thanks Sandy, I'm a bit annoyed at the quality of the pictures as they go blurry when enlarged. I'll have to work out why that is happening. Love Chris
It all looks very festive. Thank you for letting us spy in from afar. I know it will be yet another rousing success!
Thanks Jerrilyn, you are most welcome and I always let the ladies know that you are all behind me. Love Chris
Everything look just perfect. The boys have outdone themselves setting this up for you. Have a wonderful day on Friday. hugs
Thanks Shirley, the boys were great in setting tables up and moving my sewing table and sewing cabinet. The rest took me a bit longer to get it just right! Love Chris
Beautiful! You have out-done yourself again! Enjoy the luncheon, Merry Christmas to all! Love, Suzanna
Thanks Suzanna, I try each year to find something new! Love Chris
It all looks lovely again this year. I'm sure you will have a wonderful and blessed day. Merry Christmas Lynne
Thanks Lynne, I'm just hoping it won't be too hot. The smoke outside is just horrendous! It's causing my eyes to run!!! Love Chris
Hard to believe another year has gone by so quickly!! Your table is perfect - so very festive!!! The quilt turned out lovely - (the blue was pretty too though!). Please give a special hello to Meg for me!! Have tons of fun!! Hugs, Laura
Hi Laura, thanks for commenting. The table is so pretty in real life. And thanks for your comment on my quilt. I'll let Meg know you send your regards. Love Chris
How lovely. Thank for sharing a peek of your wonderful party and favors. You are an inspiration, Chris. Have a great time and tomorrow, prop up your feet!
Hi Betsey, as they say there is no rest for the wicked. After the party is over I have to ring the Newcastle Court house as I've been called up for Jury Duty on Monday 9th December. I'm hoping that the case has been cancelled, but I won't know till 4.40 tomorrow afternoon. Then at 5.30 I have choir practice for our local church Carols by Candlelight on Saturday from 4-7.00. Life is busy at the moment. Love Chris
Everything makes it look so festive! I adore your quilt and you, for all you do for these ladies. Give 'mum' a hug and Meg too from me. Merry Christmas to all!
Thanks Toogie, I will certainly pass on your regards. Mum is so looking forward to it as she is bringing a friend of hers that often brings her home from her Senior's concert every Wednesday. Her name is Carol and Mum gets on well with her. I take Mum to the concert and Carol brings her home. As Val has died and Babs, her previous friends, she likes to have someone who she knows to chat with. All of my friends get on well with Mum anyway. Love Chris
Another wonderful looking table. Enjoy.
Thanks so much Sarah, it's fun to do. Love Chris
I bet your ladies look forward to this event all year. You do such a great job. I am always amazed at what you do.
Thanks Angie, yes, they all say they can't wait to get here and see what I've done. I leave it up like this from tomorrow on too, only no gifts for our family like I've done for the ladies. Love Chris
wow as usual: great and gorgeous !! you did a beautiful job again. I'm sure all ladies will be happy to be with you. Hope you all have a wonderful time together !
Thanks Gerry, yes, it does look beautiful. I'm sure they will all enjoy themselves. Love Chris
Wow! another year, another wonderful Christmas table. Everything looks great, Chris, congratulations!
Thanks Lidia, it's a bit hard to see when you click on the picture they go huge! Love Chris
Beautiful.... I will be right over... hehe.... It looks so inviting as always you do a wonderful table.. Have a wonderful time.
Ah, if only I had the air fare...
Thanks Suzanne, we will have a great time I am sure.
And to Betsey, you are most welcome if you ever get to go down-under. Love Chris
Have a great time and enjoy your friends company
Thanks Caroline, I will. Love Chris
Gorgeous table settings, Chris...another year that I am green with envy! I know how much love and energy you put in to your annual luncheon and how much the ladies look forward to it!
Thanks Kim and it looks as thought it's going to be another hot day. It's gross outside at the moment at 2.30pm Thursday there's an eerie colour in the sky from all the dust and smoke! Love Chris
