December seems to bring out the red and green at our house – big and small, wreaths, Poinsettias, and decorations all illuminated by lights. I need light on these dark and gloomy days where you have to make your own sunshine.
Let’s not forget the red and green Christmas gift placemats, throw pillows and matching mug rugs, wall hanging of two of my favorites, barns and horses, and my very first attempt at paper piecing. Now that first paper piecing attempt could be a post all by itself with a comedy tag.
I also finished covers for my sewing machine and serger in more neutral colors with mountain and maple leaf patterns. My work area is very clean because we had company last week and two more times this week. What is more fun than friends making the effort to come visit you during the holiday season? Nothing.
My husband and I had a good chuckle when I said I needed to go water the tomatoes and pick a few. What a kick. I hope UNH sells them again next year.
So, what’s the color scheme at your house – red and green or something more unique?
Have a fun week as we approach the middle of December. 🙂
