An unexpected day at home on Friday meant that I was able put away the Fall decorations and start taking out the Christmas ones. This year the first item to be hung was my Redwork Santa.
"Over the river and through the woods" was the second item that I decided to take out. I am so glad that I finished this into a pillow top last summer.
Of course, my magnetic Advent Calendar had to come out for December 1st. I have to add the bell to the tree today.
Last night I pulled out my Christmas dishes and put them in the corner cabinet in my kitchen. I use them every day during the month of December and put them away on January first.
My crafting is still extremely limited. I have been going a little stir crazy to say the least. I started thinking about what craft I could possibly work on that doesn't require the pinching motion that is so painful.....crocheting, knitting and holding a needle or fabric are not possible right now. I remembered that last year I had completed some no-sew fabric Christmas ornaments and I had one that was barely begun. I pulled out the little crocheted basket that it was in, cut some fabric and have started working on it again.
I have two rounds done on each end. I hope to add the red row sometime today. It is made with lots of straight pins and folded 1-1/2 inch squares of fabric.
It doesn't hurt my right hand to hold the Styrofoam ball and I do most of the folding and pinning with my left hand. What a relief that there is some craft that I can work on.
Just the other day this little bunny came to visit our back yard again.
I love that the bunnies are comfortable just sitting out in the open in our yard. I wonder what will happen when my daughter visits with her puppy at Christmas.
I am joining Kathy for some Slow Sunday Stitching. Pop on over to her site to see what other bloggers are stitching. I have shared some past stitching in this post, but I will be pinning my ornament today not stitching. I will also probably try to get some more decorating done today.
Thanks for stopping by!
