14 – Oops! I’ve got nothin’
December 11, 2010 § 6 Comments
Ooops! I’ve got nothin’ for you today… because yesterday morning I was doing this. Quilting my tree quilt at home. (It’s slow going on the home sewing machine. There’s already 2-3 hours into it and not quite half done.)
And then… yesterday afternoon I was doing this. Quilting the thank you quilt for the neighbors on the mid-arm machine at my local quilt shop. (So much faster than quilting at home – 2 hours start to finish – just your basic loopy meander. This quilt might be an inch or two smaller than the Christmas quilt.)
And last night we attempted to put up the Christmas tree. But we had to go out and buy new lights. Most of our really, really old (probably as old as the number of years we have lived in our house ~ which would be 13, almost 14) Christmas lights didn’t work. So all we managed to do was move this chair, lamp & plant out of the living room and into the family/dining room, putting up the tree and stringing it with lights. Decorations will have to go on another day. (But I love this cozy corner that is created when we make room for the Christmas tree and wish we could keep it all year round. Not the tree. Just this little reading nook)
That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it.
