Christmas is really sneaking up on us. We're done with the busy part of the holidays and can slow down and enjoy the season. I didn't go overboard on decorating this year ~~ telling myself that less can be more.
One thing I always do it put up a small kitchen tree that holds a mishmash of miniature kitchen items as ornaments. The star at the top is an old Pillsbury Dough Boy cookie cutter. The tiny Christmas tree ornament with buttons was made by a dear friend and the placemats on the table came from a friend in Pennsylvania.
I am currently working on a sock monkey bow tie quilt for the Cardinal Glennon PICU in St. Louis. I joined a group at Missouri Star Quilts dedicated to making quilts for children. I think this will be fun for me, as we don't have any small children in our family anymore and I love juvenile prints in quilts. There's some serious monkey business going on around here!
It's Hubby's day off and I promised him french toast and bacon for breakfast, so I'm off to put on my chef's hat!!
Wishing you all a wonderful Sunday filled with Peace & Plenty!
