Charlotte and Emily say Merry Christmas

Emily would have said Merry Christmas to All but she's too busy right now having discovered some rainwater in an abandoned pot plant which must be investigated. Charlotte is also too busy as she is wondering if she should do something about that lizard at the bottom of the steps.Charlotte and Emily want everyone to know they do care about all those snowbound Europeans and people stranded at Heathrow and can't get home To Sunny Australia for Christmas but they have had it tough too.
Last week there was a very sudden and noisy hailstorm, Charlotte was terrified and even though the storm only lasted a few minutes she had to spend an hour in the wardrobe to recover. Emily only looked slightly annoyed by the noise. Then one day this week it was so windy they couldn't get out of the door at all and had to spend the day sleeping.

My very first William and Kate souvenir has arrived from the U.K, only a metal badge but i'ts a start and I've ordered a wedding tapestry, hope it arrives in time for me to stitch before April 29th.

Look at the big pink bear behind Charlotte, I won it at the Doll Club Christmas raffle. Made from mohair by a clever club member I think this bear is just asking to be made into a William and Kate bear. Look at the large paw pads, I could embroider names or dates there and today at the op shop I bought a little denim jacket to convert and stitch with royal stuff. A great idea and one I hope will make it out of my head and onto the bear.

Happy Christmas to all in Blogland from Charlotte, Emily and Me.


  1. Happy Christmas to you and the girls.

    I can understand they are distracted, a lot going on in their lives. A new collection for you with William and Kate's wedding.

    Best Wishes for 2011.

  2. Happy Christmas to all. Pink teddy does not realise how lucky he is to have become part of your royal collection.

    Hope 2011 is another successful blog year.

  3. I'm not sure what Banjo would do if he saw a lizard! Kind of fun I think!

    Banjo and I wish you the happiest and merriest of Christmas' too ladies! And all the best to you in the New Year!
    xo Catherine & Banjo

  4. Lovely bear you've won !
    Charlotte and Emily are so cute, if I saw a lizard I would run away for sure !
    Have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year !

  5. Would you mind sharing where you found the wedding tapestry for sale?

    Merry Christmas - I enjoy your blog!


  6. Ruth, go to BethRussellNeedlepoint in google and click on Royal Wedding in the side bar. Let me know if you have any trouble finding it.
    The design is very prety, I chose the gold background. Beth is in the U.K and there is a delay on delivery but worth the wait I'm sure.
    Happy Christmas to you and thanks for your comment.

  7. My sons and grandchildren are cruising the Carribbean for Christmas. Today was Key West day. They toured Ernest Hemingway's home and met his famous cats. I asked them to please bring one home to me. I'm holding my breath. Linzie says Merry Christmas to Charlotte and Emily.

  8. It is a shame what was (and is) going on on European airports ! People want to discover the universe and are not even able to handle our good old eart !
    Have a very happy Christmas !
