Right! The most glaring, among the fact that still half of the decorations are missing, is the lack of a...tree topper. Really have to get used to change from a 7-foot Christmas tree to a 4-foot one! All of our decorations were too big, and the big star we have would look preposterous.
So, happily we went, thinking we could find one in one of the three stores I selected.Not anything I liked...too much glitter, too ornate, too big for a little tree,,,so we came back with a copper pan. Sound familiar?
No, this Christmas tree will not have a pan as a "tophat", but it does mean we have to shop some more. This in turn will slow me down to finish my Christmas LIST (I usually throw away the HAVE TO's, but you wouldn't do it either if it pertained to the people closest to you (grimace).
I've been so bold as to display a painting on a show that was not finished, but I have to admit that I put a sign on it in big letters "IN PROCESS."
That painting got a lot of smiles.
Maybe because the painting was about Daniel in the Lion's Den.
(also I was the main organizer, so I could get away with a few things).
Right now I'm working on this tower of Poinsettias and it is taking me a long time (because of all the details).
What else is unfinished? Oh yes, how could I forget...
this is the stole from a Vogue pattern I have been knitting since August. I hope to get it finished in the Spring, LOL!
A close up so you understand why it's taking a lot of patience.
Also, when you click to enlarge you see "the life line." Something I learned from Rudee and Stephanie's blog -wished I had followed their way of working sooner than after ripping it out 8 times, because of dropping stitches!!
One good excuse is that before I read about it on their blogs, I had never heard of such a contraption.
But I end with something good, and that is
that I finished this small coffee table decoration!
Are you also (happily) scrambling for time, or is it just me?
