Yule Tide...it's on the way!


The first cold weather of the season...it sets the whole holiday doings in motion. Today, Annie and I started our Christmas decorating. I know it's early, and Thanksgiving is still a week away, but we just couldn't help ourselves...it's cold outside!


We worked in the living room today. Fired up the bayberry candles and Perry Como (one of my very favorite nuns at boarding school was his first cousin). There are boxes and all sorts of mess all over! 

Hope you are staying warm and starting to feel that Christmas magic!

******************

Thanks to those of you who offered advice on transferring a rug pattern to linen. I did find this great sticky mesh I bought a while ago and it worked like a charm. However, the linen I had would not stay on my frame...it would not grip. So I ordered new linen and traced the pattern onto that...just haven't had time to pull any loops.


Can't wait to get started!

Enjoy the day,
Robyn

  1. I did the same as you and Annie today! I was in the living decorating and cleaning too. AND I also have a Perry Como Christmas cd! Our snow stayed so I've been in the mood. Hugs, Lori
