Thought I would catch up all that I have been busy with this past little while.
I got the afghan done for our youngest son Kris. He loves black and white, so that is exactly what I made for him. I am sure he will love it as it is big enough to snuggle under while he is watching his favorite television shows.
A friend of mine does stained glass, and one day while visiting I noticed all her so called "waste glass" in a box by the back door. When I asked her what she was going to do with it and she told me throw it out, well my inner hoarder shuddered. I asked if I could take some of the clear glass to try making some icicles for my tree. My friend handed me the box, gave me some leading and said "Have a blast!"
I really don't think these turned out too badly for a first attempt. Do you?
This Sunday Harvey brought our tree up and set it up. He does the lights and I do the rest. With a cat in the house I don't put tinsel or garland on the tree. It is too much temptation for little paws to grab, and it is not healthy for them.
The decorating is an all day job for me. I have to gaze at each ornament as I remove it from the box and remember when and who I got it from. The stories the ornaments tell me are priceless.
Here is a picture of the finished product.Not too bad at all. I do notice that I need to pick up a few more glittery snowflakes to fill in a few areas. Then of course I need to pick up some candy canes as well. The tree will be done then and I can give myself a pat on the back for another job done.
Well off to visit all of you. I have a lovely cup of mint hot chocolate and a spare hour.
Everybody have a wonderful evening. God bless.
