Getting Ready

Christmas is only a little over a week away and we are pretty much done with the decorating (finally lol). The tree is up:

The nativity is out:

And I have done a bit of Christmas sewing. We normally put a train and village under our tree but not this year. Thunder is still a puppy so we didn't want to spend all our time pulling him out of it so we decided to skip it this year. So I made a tree skirt. It's not finished - it needs sandwiched and quilted but I still have one more quilt that also needs sandwiched and quilted and it's a present so it comes first. So the tree skirt is together just enough to be used and will be finished after the holidays.

My darling daughter has been taking "home ec" classes at school and made this cute little tree and brought it home today. The picture really doesn't show how cute it is - and believe me it is cute. lol.

And of course Thunder loves sitting by the tree looking out the window hoping someone will come to play with him.

Until next time, hugs and stitches. Jody
