I don’t know about you but I have been way too busy! My house is on the Altrusa Christmas Tour this year. My house is small (under 1800 sq ft) but at this point I am very thankful that I don’t have 4,000 sq ft to decorate. As it is, it’s as if a Christmas-flavored glitter bomb has gone off in my house! Steve is about to declare it done no matter what I think.
I never decorate for Christmas before Thanksgiving but I decided that I’d better start early this year because next Tuesday, right after Thanksgiving, they are coming to take photos of the house for the newspaper. So far I’ve spent 4 solid days decorating – my usual time is 1 day.
The tour is December 9 and in between the photos and the tour I’m going to to NYC to visit Jeff. To top it off, this weekend (over Thanksgiving) we are gutting and remodeling Elanor’s half bathroom. I’ll post about that starting tomorrow. Next week I’ll show you pictures of the Christmas decorations.
Today, I’m going to share with you a movie I uploaded a few days ago showing the fundamentals of English paper piecing. You can see it here plus there is a link on the Lessons page at pieceocake.com. EPP is fun, portable, and perfect hand sewing for when you are sitting and visiting with family and friends but still want to sew. Happy Thanksgiving!
