MERRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL
It is Christmas Eve here in central FL. and has been another beautiful day. It broke a record for Dec. 23 with 85 degrees and was at least 80 today. We drove down to downtown Mount Dora last night to look at the lights and it was magnificent. The town itself really goes all out but the really spectacular site was the Mount Dora Yacht Club.
It is probably the best display of lights I have ever seen with various themes circling all around the buildings and the lake. I am so glad we drove down as last year we missed it.
Tomorrow is our 3rd. Christmas here and we are having the usual open house dinner. I am cooking a ham and having ice cream nd cookies for a light dessert and all the balance of the meal will be brought by the people coming. It is always a lot of fun.
I am showing pics now of the domino books I made for the girls and for a friend. The girls have received theirs by now and the friend doesn't know one is coming. I had fun making them but they are fiddly things to do. I also made one for myself.
The first is the front cover, the second is the back. The 3rd is the little book opened up with various pics and the 4th. is just the paper I used for the back that matched well. I cannot take credit for this as I saw it on a blog or two and just copied as I went. Having taken the previous domino course with Roses On My Table sure helped though. I will make a couple more when things settle down and use different photos, etc.
Hope Santa is good to you all.
