So the model supplies didn't arrive until Thursday. (Sometimes I wonder about the USPS.) But I didn't start 3 new projects. Not even one new project. lol! Just stuck with Noah. Here he is so far.
Don't you love his face and beard? I keep thinking he's a young Santa. lol!
I did get going on the models though. And now I'm waiting for one more piece of fabric to arrive so I can stitch the last model.
In the meantime, I thought you might enjoy seeing where we get our Christmas tree, and our trek to get it home.
This is Abel's Tree Farm up north of us. Such a nice, friendly, family-owned and operated place. (No affiliation with the place, just a happy customer.)
This is the boys with the tree.
Cutting the tree down and lugging it to be baled.
They have very large balers, thank goodness! And golf carts to lug your tree for you if you prefer.
They also have a big barn where you can grab some food or baked treats if you're hungry. Which we were. (The boy child wasn't happy about posing for this picture. lol!)
Here are the boys at home cutting the very bottom off the tree in preparation for putting it in the tree stand. (This is so the tree has a fresh base through which to absorb water.) We have quite a collection of these tree stumps. The girl child used to decorate each stump and put the date on it -- now the boy child does it. They all sit on the mantel piece.
And you already saw the end result.
Little Mia got sick toward the end of the week. We still aren't sure why, although I suspect perhaps she drank some of the tree water (which has tree preservative in it). She seems to be feeling herself again and is hopefully all better.
Thanks as always for stopping by and saying hi. I hope everyone has a great week.
