Yesterday was dance night for the girls, so Wooly Wednesday for me! It was a snowy and chilly night here, so it was perfect to be cuddled up in a nice warm library working on my wool project for a few hours. I am still working on my wool BOM, “Hop to It.” My goal is to have my wool blocks complete by January. I am finding I love each month more than the last month.
Block #4. I love the rich colors of the wool. Lisa Bongean’s hand dyed Primitive Gatherings wool is some of the best I’ve seen.
Block #5. I still need to stitch around his nose and give him an eye. I received a piece of perle cotton with my kit to use specifically around his nose and for his eye, but of course I’ve lost it! Again, the colors are so rich. I’ve enjoyed every second of making this project.
I’m still trying to put out Christmas decorations. I have so much!! The girls just love it all! More is more to them, so that’s what I do. They notice every new ornament or Santa I put out. We decorate the tree together, but I do most of the rest of it. I love to see their little faces light up when they come home from school and see more decorations out! So far I have four trees! One big, three small. I have one tree dedicated to my love of shoes and handbags!
Scott surprised me with this a few years ago. I can’t remember what they are called, but the heat from the candles make the Nativity Scene spin. The girls just love to watch it!
My dining room so far…
I hang our stockings on my pie safe and fireplace mantle. I put so many santas on my mantle that I run out of room! Back to decorating…
