Hard to believe I know, but I actually made that Christmas centrepiece I’m holding. Three friends and I met at Oakridge Garden Centre in Steinbach on Saturday where Glenys and Debbie had arranged for us to take a class in making Christmas decorations from pine with the talented and terrific Sheryl Adrian. First up cinnamon bun steamers and some decadent desserts to share in the Oakridge Cafe while we caught up on each other’s lives in an hour of non-stop talking then we were ready to get started on our projects under Sheryl’s tutelage. Here’s how mine progressed.
Our Christmas decorations were each unique, just like we are.
Yes Esther was a bit of a renegade and decided to make a wreath instead of a centrepiece. Esther was a little wild and crazy on Saturday and she didn’t even have that glass of Sangria till after we’d finished making the wreaths. Here she’s actually photobombing my picture of Glenys at work. We were all very happy with our final products and we still had time to do some Christmas shopping in the wonderful Oakridge gift shop. After that, we were off to have supper and open gifts before exchanging our last 2014 hugs and wishing each other a Merry Christmas. It was a great day and exactly what I needed in the midst of busy holiday preparations.
