Much Improvement ~

Great progress has been made in the living room.  (Oops.  Vacuum cleaner is in the picture.)  All but a couple boxes have been hauled to the attic.  Swags still need to be hung on the cupboards.  I was going to change the bows but decided not to.  The last major hurdle is the big tree.  Tomorrow I am going to play so hopefully Sunday is the day :)
The paw print mat is ready to be bound.  With three rows of black (thanks for letting me know it was needed), the finished size is about 13" in diameter.
If I'm going to get more gifts made for Christmas, I'd better get busy!
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
