I must admit I am not really all that much into Christmas this year – I don’t know why – usually I am raring to go to get the house decorated and this year my feet are dragging. We got started yesterday, ran out of lights – misplaced? used too many to start – I don’t know but Mike didn’t have enough for the tree so we went to Wal-Mart to get more lights – and yes it was crowded – but I did get one present and had an arm load of stuff – hadn’t thought to get a cart when we first walked in – mistake because I never walk back out of the store with the one item I went to get – do you? I saw an empty cart as we were getting close to a finish – there was a lady near it I asked if it was hers or anyone near by and she said no so I dumped my stuff in it and so did Mike and we went to the plant area to pay as it wasn’t near so crowded and got out of there.
So anyhow the tree has lights but all the decorations are still waiting to be put on the tree – I will get to it later today. (at night it looks good as is) Those are mainly empty boxes under the tree – they belong to my mom and she loved the boxes so I kept them and put them under the tree as they are pretty – they all had things in them that I had given to her for presents and she kept the boxes too.
My mother’s wreath that I made her years ago hanging on the sewing room door – a nice memory of her fun hanging it on her door every year first at her apartment in the senior complex and then at the assisted living center where she lived for 2 years before she died.
Some of the yearly decorations here
and the few that I put in the dining room – an old wall hanging over the chair for now while I think of where to put it – made years ago and one end is crooked – I keep thinking maybe I need to cut off the outer border of it and redo it seeing as I don’t like the unevenness and it bothers me.
Two paper whites growing in water on the windowsill and a little bit of Christmas dishes out – mainly it is the Xmas tree that I need to get decorated and then all the boxes back out to the workshop
A clutter of stuff by the fireplace – I need to get the little trees put someplace and have too many things on the fireplace and the floor – still need to do the clean up!
Oh well – I will get to it all sometime today!
A little quilting from yesterday I had just spritzed some blue lines out so that is why it looks darker – it will dry. I am linking to Small Quilts/Doll Quilts — MCM #99 — Em’s Scrapbag — and Love Laugh Quilt.
