Look! The tree is UP...and I didn't have to do it myself :c) Do you think my family has been reading my blog? *LOL*
Oh, and before I go any further....Sharleen sent me this FUNNY VIDEO you HAVE to see. It's entitled "BEWARE OF THE DOGHOUSE" I died laughing...please take a side trip to see it!
This is just one of those things where many hands make light work. Okay....Four hands is better than Two? Jeff was at work, so he missed out on the festivities.
There are a lot of things I'm not putting out this year....like garland down the banisters. I'm not decorating the front porch either because the porch railing is completely hidden by bushes. But I did get the candle lights in the windows. I love those.
I swapped the every day dishes for the Christmas dishes....
The only thing left to do is to hang the stockings. This mantle needs some cup hooks :c)
Here is a pic of the little "Streak of Sunshine" I pieced at Charity Bee on Thursday. It's not much of anything, but it is nice to have a top to donate to a good cause at the end of the meeting. Somehow, these kinds of quilts are the ones that fill my heart more than any other, no matter how humble they may be.
Mad City Mama is now QUILTED! Yeah! And I've got the binding ready to stitch down. I'm glad I was convinced not to bother with borders, the black stripe print I used for the binding really is going to finish things off nicely!
So now....that's two bindings and two sleeves to finish. I think I'll be placing my butt in the recliner and watching some movies to do handwork by today.
*SINGING* "Baby, It's Cold Outside!", and I'm staying IN!
