Another week has just whizzed by! Doesn't it seem like they go faster the closer we get to Christmas? I'm still trying to avoid seeing exactly how close it is, but it IS the last day of November - EEK! I know we are close to the point where we won't be able to share easily (because secrets!) but I hope you'll still have something to share, even if it's not a finish! So let's get started whooping it up!
There wasn't too much time for quilting or sewing this week, although I did manage to quilt and bind a quilt for the ministry...
When I wasn't sewing, I was finishing up the kitchen remodel...
Here it is, in all it's messy countertop glory! It's nice to have this job finished, and I love the way the new backsplash looks.
I also hung the pictures back in the freshly painted foyer, and started doing a little Christmas decorating...
We went to a really nice tree farm last weekend and got the pretty wreath (a weird place to hang it, but I like it there!) and the little live trees on this furniture piece. After Christmas, I'll give the trees to my daughter to plant in her new back yard. My yard has more than enough trees!!
And this morning, I got out my Kate Spain table runner and decorated the dining room table! I love those candle holders - they are fun to fill with seasonal stuff!
I filled the bottom of the jar with kosher salt (a trick I learned from a caterer - it looks like snow), and added the cute little bottlebrush trees I found in the Target Dollar Spot. It still looked a little empty until I added the elf figurines I bought years ago for my daughter. She left them at home when she moved out, and they've found a new purpose now!
And one other thing happened this week that's worth a whoop whoop....
Our quilt ministry Christmas party! We had a fun time - lots of good food and then a Dirty Santa
battle exchange! I love these ladies - we have so much fun together, AND do so much good!
And last of all, we had a family photo shoot with the grands - our first! Isn't this a wonderful pic? And there are lots more (although I won't bore you with them all at the same time!)
So - - - can I get a whoop whoop?
And now it's your turn!
What's got you whooping it up this week?
What's making you do a little happy dance?
Share! We want to dance right along with you,
And it's always more fun to dance with friends!
The party will stay open until Sunday midnight.
Hope to see you there!
