My daughter's special fella' sent it as a little thank you for a nice Thanksgiving weekend. Seems like we should be thanking him for putting that smile on our daughter's face.
I got to spend a little time in my sewing room this past week.
I'm still in the mood to work on Christmas projects. I saw a really cute Christmas pattern and ordered it online. While I wait for it to show up, I'm going right ahead with how I think it should be made.
I think I need 1800 1 1/2 inch cream squares. I'm going scrappy.
There's just something about small pieces that makes them look so cute. (like shoes, why don't the 10s look as cute as the 6s?)
I hope I get the pattern before I get this project finished! It will be interesting to see who does it right!!
I'm still decorating.....
The tree in the sunroom (the room with the red couches) is a theme tree. All the ornaments are either snowmen, have snowmen on them or make up a snowman, like snowballs or snowflakes. I started collecting snowman ornaments 12 years ago. The first tree was a 3 foot skinny tree, we've grown into this 6 foot tree. I've collected so many that a new addition has to be pretty special for me to buy it.
Forgetting the sentiment of some ornaments, here are a few of my favorites, based on cuteness alone.
This one is hand painted, from the INSIDE!!
There are several things about this ornament that appeal to me, the polka dots, the red color, the pudgy snowlady wearing earmuffs.
Here's businessman snowman, all dressed up for work. I really like the dog hanging out with him.
This is my second most favorite, I think it 's the red coat. I LOVE red coats. (I'm sure you're shocked!)
But this little guy is my most favorite, yes, he hangs upside down, but he sure looks happy about it. This is how I feel most of December, upside down but happy.
