Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I'll be heading out to make the hour trip to my daughter's house shortly. My contributions to dinner are ready to go - deviled eggs and BBQ smokies. I'm thankful today that my son-in-law and daughter are cooking!
Ten little ornaments are done, except 6 still need ribbon for hanging. But they are turning out so cute! I had most of yesterday off work and my husband spent the whole day sleeping off whatever "bug" he came home with. So I had LOTS of quiet sewing time. And he is staying home today so he doesn't share whatever he has with the rest of the family. I promised to leave him some smokies as a treat.
I also kitted up ten more ornaments yesterday using scraps from my drawer of Christmas fabrics. A couple more Santa faces will appear, plus stockings, and peppermint candies. And last but not least I found the piece of fabric with the poinsettias and holly leaves.
Usually my tree goes up the weekend after Thanksgiving, but it's so late this year that I've been wanting to get it set up NOW. However, this is all the further I got - 2 of the 10 branch sections up the stairs. Everything else is still down in the basement. The stairs are getting to be one of the biggest frustrations to navigate, so multiple trips carrying stuff just wasn't going to happen.
Maybe tomorrow I'll get everything up here so I can set up the tree and get it decorated. I'm ready for some Christmas cheer in the house.
