Happy Sunday! The good news ~ only nine more days until the winter solstice. Nine more days until the days start getting longer. To me that is actually GREAT news.
I do have a finish to share. It was hooked last winter, but never "finished". I just wasn't sure how to do the binding on such a piece, so I just winged it.
My first thought was to cover the entire back in wool but here is what I ended up doing. Probably not the right way, but I have found on a round piece it is easier to make little pleats rather than trying to gather the binding (in this case wool).
And more great news! The decorating is finally done. It only took close to two weeks . . . I know that's insane . . . but as I've said in the past, I am my own worst enemy.
My dining room is not a huge room, but I have lots packed in to it. Atop the pie safe.
This tree is to the left. It was hard to get a picture. I had to crawl under the dining table (not a pretty sight!) 😁To the left of the window is another cupboard . . . or part of one. The decorations on the shelves are hard plastic Santas from the 1950's.
The cubby is filled with part of my collection of treenware. The reindeer are a few more of the hand-me-downs from friend Chris.
Two more hand-me-downs 😉
Little 1 1/4" Santa from my "almost sister-in-law" Lyn, marked Germany.
Tree with vintage chenille Santas and little glass bells.
On the opposite wall is the jelly cupboard. The Santa tree I shared in a previous post is to the left.
The large stepback cupboard is on the third dining room wall.
Of course there is still lots of piddly stuff to do . . . wrapping, a few more cards, etc.
Please think good thoughts. Molly's surgery for the mast cell tumor and a dental are tomorrow. Poor baby. I am having both done at the same time so she is only under anesthesia once. Anesthesia is more of a risk for brachycephalic (flat faced) animals.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs 😊
