Below is a post that went up on my other site last week. Thought I’d share it here too.
Yes, I am still here but just haven’t posted. Haven’t had too much to share but with the holiday season here, I thought I would just check in.
Craft fair season didn’t happen here this year so I didn’t do too much as far as crafting/sewing new items. Not that I didn’t spend time with my sewing machines. Along with masks, masks, and more masks, I had some orders for a few other things that kept me busy. I did add two new items to my products though. I just couldn’t resist making these two cuties.
We decorated the outside and inside of the house right after Thanksgiving. Some people aren’t doing much as far as decorating goes this year. But we sort of felt that, like the song says, “We need a little Christmas, right this very minute”. Things will be very different this year but the lights, decor and music have always been highlights of the season for me. I wasn’t about to let covid take that away from me too.
And since I am spending a good bit of time each day in my sewing room, I also have a little tree in there. This year I decided to decorate it with some items I have had for years that were just sitting in a jar and a tin.
The wooden beads are leftover from the 90’s for some wooden crafts that I was doing at that time and the tin had some spools of thread that have been around for as long as I can remember. They are wooden spools and I believe they were from my grandmother. Of course, it wasn’t usable thread at this point but I wanted to use them for something. I got out some red and white baker’s twine that I had and set to work putting them together to make a strand of garland for my little tree.
It definitely brings a smile to my face.
I hope all is well with you and yours and that your Thanksgiving Day was nice. Even with all the nonsense going on this year, I know that our family still has so much to be very thankful for.
Be well. Stay safe. See you soon.
Bye for now.
