Our Christmas gift from Maman!

The BSC sewing challenge for this month is "Annabelle Book" items.
Maman has the "A is for Annabelle" book by Tasha Tudor.
The pictures are very pretty.
We all are great fans of Tasha!
Tante Martha made a big quilt for her one time.
It was a whole cloth Welsh quilted quilt.
So Tante Martha designed a Bleuette size one for this challenge.
Maman worked very hard on our quilt.
She began the embroidery in November.
She worked it in red.
We think it is very pretty!

Maman decided to make a matching pillow.
She used red fabric and embroidered with white thread.

It looks like a Christmas quilt!
Merci beacoup, cher Maman!
Love from Yvette Marie and all the rest.

The pretty snow!

It snowed for 12 hours today, December 19, 2012.
It began in the middle of the night.
We were allowed out on the balcony to look at it.
We still don't own boots.
Isn't it pretty?

We live in Canada but it doesn't always snow here in Vancouver.
We get lots of rain because we are part of a rain forest.
We love it when it snows!

Ellowyne and Emily above wished to show off their pretty Christmas dresses without any cloaks or coats. They were brave.

A lovely Christmas dress!

This beautiful picture and the gorgeous dress are by Tante Andrea.
The dress is exquisitely pretty because it is so simple, both in the design and the fabric.
Oh Maman!
I do wish you could sew all of us a Christmas dress just like this.
