Getting ready for Christmas
The practical reinventor has a new sewing table - it's one of those clever ones that has a gas lift and folds away to look like an innocuous corner cabinet. She has the luxury of not having to fold it away, as she has a whole room dedicated to sewing. She also has the luxury of the creative reinventor who finds her wonderful birthday presents and always indulges her sewing and craft projects.
On the new table at the moment is
a selection of tree ornaments, and
a Santa hat for the practical reinventor's Executive Director, a Yamaji Man. The Yamaji are the Native Title Owners (Aboriginal people) from the Mid-West region of Western Australia. He has very graciously agreed/been bullied into having a division Christmas party and playing Santa for the compulsory Kris Kringle.
That garland along the bottom is supposed to be gum leaves and the astute reader will recognise the Aboriginal flag. The practical reinventor had never seen sparkly felt before - it makes a very good, Christmassy gum leaf garland.
