Brrr. It was -1°F (-18°C) when I got up this morning. I knew last night at bedtime that it was going to be a cold one. Snow on the ground and clear skies (finally!) equal a cold, cold night.
Life sure has a way of intruding doesn't it? It sticks it's head up and says "Hey, I'm here and you can't ignore me." I've been a bit silent because I'm dealing with a lot of family issues right now and the stress is very hard on me. I've lost 6 pounds from it. Not complaining there, but I know it will come right back on. I don't eat when I'm this stressed. I can't seem to choke the food down.
I was in the sewing room today. Evidence is in the photo. Do you know what you are looking at there? It's the pieces and parts and bits and bobs of my Four Seasons Quilt. I found that white fabric doesn't show up very well on my white Horn sewing machine cabinet *smile*. But you can see that this is going to be green and white. And that's all I'm saying.
I was able to get a small bit of Christmas decorating done. This year I'm going for the spare, minimalist look. I've put up the quilted wall-hangings and draped the quilts. The fake poinsettias are in a potted plant and I bought a really cute little rosemary bush that has been pruned into the shape of a pine tree. With it's container, it stands 2 feet tall. I have a box of itty bitty glass balls that I put on it. This will have to be our tree this year. TheKid has to work on Christmas, there are no grands and I don't have the time to do anything else. I've got to squeeze out a bit of (my nonexistent) time to get CarGuy another present to put under this tiny little tree.
