I had a tall Christmas Pyramid. I believe I had five tiers. It was hard to put together and even harder to get the wheel spinning. If the candles were too short, there wasn't enough heat to spin the wheel. I can't imagine lighting candles for this one! It's a good thing this one is electric!
I will never tire of looking at local architecture. Someone once mentioned on TV it is like living in art. Watching House Hunters, it is funny to see one house appeal while another repels them. Our homes are a great way to express ourselves. Maybe that is why I am so fascinated by the bridges and buildings that I have seen all over the world. The influence from our forefathers' backgrounds and the materials that were available for each location can be quite interesting.
I would love to hear the story behind this building with the elephant.
Below are a few more photos of sights that caught my eye as we walked down the street...

I know quite a few of my friends are Downton Abbey fans, so I wanted to share an English Manor Mystery Quilt Along that is starting with the new season in January.
I wish I did not have so many projects right now, not to mention, that my fabric bins are overflowing. I really need to get some quilts made soon.
Anyway, if it wasn't for those two obstacles, I would have signed up last week. I really like the idea of working on a related block while watching Downton Abbey. If you sign-up for this, I would Love to see your blocks and the finished quilt! I bet it will look as romantic as some of the ladies' dresses.
Speaking of quilting, I do believe I hear some fabric calling my name. Time to do a little sewing.
