Pillowcases Done

It was a perfect day for sewing, temps were cold



fire was burning, making the house toasty.

And me in my comfy clothes....

So this morning while having my coffee and watching Morning Joe, I quilted a little more on Scandinavian Christmas




I am such a slow quilter, thank goodness my livelihood doesn't depend on it.


I think I might take Chookyblue's advice, go ahead and hang it up even if it's incomplete.



After a few chores and as little as possible cleaning I went on to finish the Rudolph and Santa pillow cases.



 Next step is to get them off in the mail to the grandsons. Seeing how yesterday I mailed off the first set, not a great rush, Friday should be okay.

Did finish the binding last night on the Vintage Christmas and went ahead hung it up in the living room



So cute and makes me feel the need to get the decorations down and put the house in the Christmas spirit,



Now days the holidays vary from year to year. This year will be celebrated with family afterward. I rather have it before, more fun event happen before... none after.
No Polar Express this year.



DAY 6

  1. I need to get my house in the Christmas spirit as well - I am pokey but now that the painting is done I can start getting things out little by little over the next couple days and seeing as I don't put out a really large amount of things I can get it done - then to start some Christmas baking!

Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
