There's not much sewing going on here, but I am making great progress on my Christmas To Do list, especially the decorating. Everything in my house has a thin layer of glitter topped with pieces of styrofoam, even Cooper, even us. Once everything is unpacked and I can move from decorating to cleaning, I hope the situation improves, although really, Cooper and I don't mind a little glitter, the styrofoam, not so much.
I like dishes, Christmas dishes are my favorite. I keep the kitchen table set with this place setting, and yes, I pick it up and move it for every meal we eat at that table, which is maybe just once a day. I like the dishes and enjoy seeing them out, so I don't mind the daily plate shuffle.
This is the reason we have so much glitter in our house. I replaced our old 12 foot Christmas tree with this 9 foot one. This tree is dusted with glitter to give it the look of a tree covered in frost. I really enjoyed decorating a 9 foot tree over a 12 foot tree and look forward to this tree settling in and the glitter staying in place. I'm also going with a white and silver theme in the living room this year, a nice change from the red and gold I've had the last 8 years.
Although you know me, I had to have a little red in that room. I normally hang "Oh Christmas Tree" in the living room in December, but this year I decided I wanted something a little dressier and went with "Red White and Wonderful" instead.
"Oh Christmas Tree" is on the quilt rack with "French Vintage" in the sunroom. (I've had the quilt rack for over 7 years and have no idea where you can get one too.)
The red couches are ready for Christmas, on the left is pretty little quilt a friend sent me for my birthday, on the right is Vintage Holiday.
Since the tree in this room is decorated with nothing but snowman ornaments, I thought this adorable snowman couple should hang out here too, in between the two red couches.
Besides Cooper's quilt on the floor, the other quilt in this room is "Scratch", a Miss Rosie's Quilt Co quilt.
I'm hoping to get back to my Kate Spain Christmas Round & Round this week, the perfect project for December sewing. I hope you're making progress with whatever is on your To Do list too!
