I’ve had an enjoyable week with family and friends, albeit most of it long distance due to Covid restrictions. Our area of Nova Scotia is restricted to our five person bubbles right now. We included a couple of friends in our bubble. Wednesday both friends were over and we sewed and visited. It was a great opportunity for me to make headway on some projects.

I’ve had a challenging week with projects. You know how sometimes a project just eats up your time and you feel as if nothing was accomplished at the end of the day? Well the moose cushion cover has been one such project. It should have been a quick and easy project, but it hasn’t been. The machine appliqué stitch I used has been a bear to rip out. It needed ripping because the tension on my sewing machine went wonky last week. I finally sat down and dealt with it. I had also accidentally ripped the Black Watch plaid back of the cushion cover while ripping out the side seam of the cushion cover. I found a suitable patch for that. That is one project I am going to be glad to have finished!

I have also been hand sewing the binding of the Trip-Around-The-World quilt. I’m looking forward to finishing it and enjoying it on our bed.

This past weekend was taken up with other activities. Christmas is fast approaching. We, like a lot of people, are used to more social gatherings this time of year. Covid is putting an interesting twist on things. We are still having a tree decorating party, only this year it’s a house decorating party. I think we’re having at least one other person over. I also have a small cookie exchange plan in progress for closer to Christmas…with the same individual.

I am lamenting the state of my Christmas home decor. It is a mishmash of items that do not coordinate. I don’t know what I was thinking when I packed it to move! I think there will be some serious decisions made this holiday season in regards to what stays, what goes, and what comes into the house.

Well, that’s it for now. If you’ve been reading, thanks! I hope you all have a great week! Till Friday…Jean
