Good morning everyone! This week has been one of preparing for the upcoming holiday season. I hosted a tree decorating party yesterday. I invited a few friends to help. Our house is small and with Covid doing its thing again (still) I decided to err on the side of caution.
We had a potluck buffet and it was great! One of my friends surprised me with a home baked bread Advent wreath! I’d seen one at her place before and commented on the uniqueness of it. She decorated it before she left last night.
We had a young lady come who helped decorate the tree, the front window and arrange some Christmas florals in a floor vase. It was great to have her energy and enthusiasm in the room. I think I still need more ornaments on the tree, but we were running out of them. I just didn’t buy enough. Something to think about next year.
Then there were the garland ladies! They did a magnificent job of making two cheap Michaels garlands look good. Trust me, that was a job!
One lady took on the mantel and went all out. It looks gorgeous!
I am so happy for the help of my friends. They did a wonderful job and we had great fun doing it. The food was good too. I made some mulled apple cider as well. It was a great time, and lots of fun. Thank-you to all involved!
In other news…I am still in the process of printing out labels for “The Weave” and “Where Are We Going?”. Once those are done I’ll be taking a month long break from hooking. I want to focus on finishing up some other projects around here. I have some quilts and other projects to finish up.
If you have been, thanks for reading! Have a great weekend!
