Ahhhh , the kids are safe and snug in school and the Brooding Genius is tucked away at work, the house is quiet as a mouse, and I am in sheer bliss!!! I love Mondays =) Not that I don’t adore my family, but I am just one of those solitary kinda people. I crave alone time sometimes. Plus aren’t you just so much more productive when you have some hours to yourself? I am. It’s hard to clean around people, and I feel a smidge guilty locking myself away in the elf workshop (sewing room) when everyone needs me to do this, do that, make me a sandwich, tie my shoe, my sister HIT ME!!!! ETC. But as of right now I have 4 more glorious hours of doing whatever I WANT!!
Look what came in the mail today!! I ordered some wood signs off of Blacksheep Prims store. Here is her blog:
Aren’t they de-lish? I love them. They are so well done! As you can see I already had a place to hang one, and the next two are awaiting their new home. She also sent two scrumptious smelling christmas scented tarts as a thank-you for my order, How COOOOL! Thank YOU!
I finished my candy canes that I was working on. They turned out sweeeeeet. Here is one arrangement I made using the wax dipped ones for my kitchen:
Now I have kind of a theme going on with this little grater I purchaed last year:
Ohhh and for those of you who dought my love of Thanksgiving ahem Brenda!! http://pumpkinpatchprimitivequiltshoppe.blogspot.com/…..seeeeeee I have a turkey quilt still hanging up in the kitchen there! LOL
Here is a little stocking that I bought from the same crafter, it dresses up my old kitchen gadgets that used to hang from a ladder that was hanging on the ceiling in our old dinning room. I still think I might get the BG to hang it from the ceiling in our tiny kitchen. It’s so fun to decorate ladders!
Oh whats that you say? This is a QUILT blog? NOT a Christmas decorating blog? I have nothing on the quilt front cause I have been ELF crazy. But here is a quilt I hung up that I made last year. She is a Christmas chick(what else? heheh), complete with wool applique bits and cotton applique bits.
Later Gators! Melissa
