Hi all! It is always a hard transition for me when I take down the Christmas decorations and then have to wait until Valentine's Day again. The house just seems so bare and forlorn. So this year I decided to have a little "winter" decor for the month of January. Just a few "wintery" items...pine cones and snowmen...tree branches...and some silver and white that I put up. I also decided to make a new table runner for my table. I just used three 14x14 inch squares of fabric and sewed the sides together, then cut 3 inch strips of burlap the length and width of the sewn fabric and sewed that on the edges. I then sewed on the various doilies. I cut some fabric the same size for the back and sewed that on. Now I have a "winter" table runner. Do you decorate for winter? When do you start putting up decorations for Valentine's?
Hope you have a FABBY WINTER day! Hugs, Cheryl
“Anyone who imagines that bliss is normal is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting that he’s been robbed. The fact is that most putts don’t drop, most beef is tough, most children grow up to just be people, most successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration, most jobs are more often dull than otherwise. Life is like an old time rail journey…delays…sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinders and jolts, interspersed only occasionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling burst of speed. The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride.” ― Gordon B. Hinckley
