I Had Great Plans...

...but, they didn't happen!

I was going to sew and quilt the day away with the FAB's as we make a *push* with our Holiday sewing. Before breakfast, I did manage to sew the last Traveling Tote (pattern by Terry Atkinson). These little beauties are flannel lined so that our cowbells won't get scratched any more than they currently are, when I cram them into my Milwaukee Admirals' game bag. The black one is my cowbell~I'm currently collecting players' signatures and when it's filled then I will paint a clear protective coat on it.

Instead, DH brought up my Holiday decorations containers. Now Mary, Joseph, the Shepards and Wise Men are awaiting baby Jesus, the stockings are hung by the fireplace, the Nutcrackers are standing watch, my Santas are all collaborating on gifts, the sleigh bells are hung by the door, the Santa plates are in the cupboard along with my holiday coffee mug collection and the lighted garland is placed in the mud room~all ready to Welcome the Holiday Spirit into Bell Creek Quilts.

Today Mother Nature did not disappoint as we are covered with about 3 inches of snow. The first of this season! :)

You sound like me earlier in the week. New sewing for dealing with the holiday decorating but I have since made up for it. I have no doubt that you will as well. You whipped up those bags pretty quickly!

That is great that you got your Christmas decorations up. Best wishes on getting all your sewing done.
