We've had some major illness at our house this past week so some of my Christmas sewing, decorating and baking had to given up but everyone's on the mend and the really important sewing, decorating and baking did get finished. So I guess I'm ready (or mostly).
For all my gardening friends, last week I was at Sam's Club and bought this hydrangea, I was fascinated by the petals, they are icy white, very thick and textured.
Mary made this pincushion with left over scraps from her tree skirt she made this year. Her tree was beautiful with ornaments to match the tree skirt, I was going to photograph it at the party but that's how it goes.
