Slowly But Surely. . .

Slowly but surely the Christmas decorating continues. Remember I said just a few days ago that I wanted to have all the decorating completed by Monday?


Well, Monday the only decorating I did was placing the candlestick lights in 18 windows. The reason I didn't do more decorating is because I decided to work on Little E's 'I Spy Quilt'.

(click on picture to see details)
I found these cute little tags in my sewing box & sewed one to the quilt.



It is finished! I'm very happy with the completed project. My next sewing project for Little E is a monogrammed denim purse. A little birdie told me she likes to play with purses. It's been many years since I've done any monogramming, hope it comes back to me easily! I'll keep you posted. . .
Okay, hopefully tomorrow I'll have pictures to post of some Christmas bling!

She will love it. And yes E loves to play purse. I guess she has seen me in action with my purse and diaper bag in tow as we make our shopping rounds. How funny!

Too sweet!

My kids still have some of the handmade things their Grandma Ruth made them when they were toddlers. These things hold such very special value in their lives.
