Make-A-List Monday - Who Has Time to Sew??


Hi, all!

Monday has rolled around again, Thanksgiving is in the rear view mirror, and the Christmas season is in full swing!  

We had twenty-four people at our house for Thanksgiving, so I decorated the house for the day and took care of some long-neglected tasks, like....

...fixing the "pinchers"....

...sprucing up the front door welcome mat....

...and making a really pretty centerpiece for my dining room table!

Of course, once Thanksgiving was over, it was time to start decorating for Christmas, because I have two parties at my house over the next two weeks.  We got a new artificial tree for the foyer (after last year's tree fell over, we had PTSD!) and it is set up and, now, decorated!

So my week is going to be filled with lots more decorating - I have another tree to bring down from the attic, along with all of its decorations - and a little bit of baking and cooking.  Thankfully I have several days so I can spread it out, since the kids are in school and not available to help as they have in the past.  I'll share more pictures next week!

And speaking of Christmas, did I tell you that Emmy is in the cast of A Charlie Brown Christmas in her middle school?  She plays Snoopy, and the play is this coming weekend.  I know her mom will be happy when rehearsals are over and life goes a little back to normal, but Emmy is having a ball!

So that's what my week looks like - and I really need to know that someone out there is having fun sewing!  So tell me - - - what are YOU working on this week?




  1. Your tree is lovely! Jeni at In Color Order is doing a sew along with her Lined Drawstring Bag pattern. I need a new bag to hold my knitting so I am going to join in on the fun! I might need to make a few bags for friends too. Have not sewed since May. Had windows and siding put on the house this summer and there is dust everywhere! Excited to get my machine out and get busy.

  2. I made a list this morning of all the projects I want to finish by Christmas. A bunch of them are quick, so maybe I should do those first.

  3. Pretty tree. I decorated Mom's side of the house and the shop, but don't on my side because of a very destructive KAT!!

  4. Amazing looking decorations! The new tree is beautiful! Make sure you get enough sleep in the weeks ahead--the pace sure does ramp up for December!
