Thinking of the Holidays Here..

With snow falling for the last several days here, is it any wonder my thoughts are turning towards Christmas?
It is only four inches so far, but still enough to remind me that I need to start planning and thinking of the holidays.

Of course it’s easy to get excited about the snow coming when I’m inside drinking hot tea and you know who has to do all of the shoveling…..

This is what I’m currently working on-new pillow shams for our bedroom.
Hopefully I’ll get them finished this week….
And, hopefully, the whole bedroom…

These are my inspiration pillow shams!

 
 
And what are you up to on this Tuesday?

  1. Nothing so lovely as beautiful pillow shams. I'm making tea towels with appliqued images. Snow does make a gal feel as if things are changing. Have you played any Christmas music yet? I am considering it even though there's no snow forecast for today.

  7. Yesterday I finished my beret that I crocheted. Today I went to our new (to us) gym to work out. Then Miguel and I went shopping for work out clothes. He bought new shoes, and shorts and I bought workout pants and a shirt. Any excuse to shop, right?

  8. It looks wintery there Kimberly. And pretty too. I like your new pillow sham and the inspiration photo. I'm sure they will look pretty when completed. Today I went to Bible study in the morning and this afternoon I started Christmas decorating. I can't seem to get into it though. It will take me a couple more days and I'm in town tomorrow. I won't put the tree up yet although I've seen a couple up and lit already! Have fun sewing.

  9. The snow looks beautiful. We are getting cool temps and cold wind…but no snow yet. I really like your pillow slips/shams…pretty. I like the ruffles. Your inspiration photo is pretty too. While on the subject of pretty photos…I forgot to tell you, I like your new profile picture. So pretty! Stay warm my friend. ~Pat

  10. Kind of chuckling at snow inspiring your Christmas thoughts. Our first snow was the first of October and snow has fallen four more times since then. One day fall colors rule, then snowy winter white then the temps soar back to “sit on the deck and sun bath” summer kind of days. Opening the windows each morning is a real surprise!My project is updating our “bug out” rolling suitcase. When we lived in Houston we saw how one can be evacuated in 30 minutes! Having a suitcase packed with emergency info and emergency supplies and grab lists should be a must have for everyone. Lists like what heirloom jewelry to take, meds, legal docs etc is helpful to have when crazy times hit. Keeping batteries, addresses and pet/people food is tricky though.
