We would make a fire, draw the curtains, light the candles and switch off the lights. We would snack on tea and toast and I would read the poem (very theatrically!). It was all very atmospheric and set the scene ready for the magic day. I still do this every year, but now with my grandchildren.” – Twas the Night Before Christmas Q Q Q Mandy Shaw 8 Join us at www.gathered.how/todaysquilter
