Tuesday I finished my quilt. It was a big project, 65x90", and I was not sure if I could manage it all with my sewing machine, but I got it done! I can show it to you after Christmas.
Then I moved my sewing station out of the dining room and back upstairs, and put all the furniture back in place. I needed my dining room table, opened full out, to manage my project.
Next, I dusted all of my pottery collection and packed it up and got it stored away. I need the shelves, because, in case you haven't heard, Santa Claus is coming to town, and my Santa collection is coming out of the attic.
Wednesday we will clean house thoroughly. And then we'll be ready to start decorating.
Of course the Sounder Elf and the Sounder and Seahawks flowers are still on the mantel. Football season is far from over, and the Sounders play Thursday evening for the Western Conference Championship, and the chance to move on to the final, the MLS Cup, on Dec. 9th. Go Sounders!
Finally, I got out my Christmas cookie recipes and made my shopping list of ingredients. Next week I'll start baking!
