Busy seems to be my middle name lately, as I'm sure it is with all of you. One holiday down and only about 5-6 weeks to go until normalcy returns. Thank God we haven't had any snow yet, that always seems to hamper my plans. It seems there is something I must have immediately as the days go on, or things I think of, or run out of, or something or another, and clear weather makes it easier just to jump in the car and go without thinking.
I do have a couple to things to show you today though. I got my swap package from my partner, Laney (lrmcdonald2000) from the mug rug swap and the rug is already hanging in my kitchen for the holidays. I adore it! Simple and sweet and on a white background just like I like. We agreed that we'd make each other's portrait style rather than landscape style just for this purpose since I have only a tiny wall space that needed to be filled.
If you remember, this is the one I sent to her:
Then, finally I had a chance to make something that I wanted to do for a long time. Months ago I joined the Charley Harper quilt along. I really wanted to copy one of his awesome works for myself, but at the time was just too busy with the "Ladies". Finally though, I was free enough, and inspired enough by this print to make this:
I really had fun doing it, and it too, is hanging in my house for the holidays. I think I'll pack it away every year with the Christmas stuff just so it doesn't get lost in the shuffle.
Today I have to tackle the dining room table. UGH! What a mess! Next time I'll show you a picture (not that I haven't done that already on numerous occasions.) I was going to do it yesterday, but decided to go to lunch and visit with a friend instead. (After all, aren't we supposed to be of good cheer this time of year? Hello! That's what I thought too!) Take care my friends, and breathe.........
