Once the Christmas crafting begins around here, our table is covered in mess for the better part of a month. Even when I manage to clean it off before supper, it just goes into the corner of the dining room floor. FESTIVE!
I've been working on quilts for the girls' beds for months now. Well, for several days out of the last few months anyway. I'm still cutting the fabric. Once I get that done it will go quickly, but the cutting part is getting really, really old. I am over it. And there is MUCH fabric left.
I like to give handmade gifts so I have been scouring the internet this week looking for ideas. I have found a few good ones and even some that Sweetheart can help with. Last year the girls made sachets for every lady in the family. I haven't found something that both the girls can be involved with yet. Still looking.
To top it off, we are considering not going to see my family for Thanksgiving, but instead celebrating here at our home. That would be a first! We've never done Thanksgiving with just our little family except the first year we were married and I flew out to California to meet S and stay in the Navy Lodge. I loved that Thanksgiving. But that introduces more crafts and things that need to be done for Thanksgiving!!
I'm thinking I might need to dust off the TV trays.
OOOH! I just had a better idea!! We have this small folding table we bought for camping. I can set that up in the dining room and stack stuff there and we can eat on our table. Of course I'll move that for Thanksgiving. That would not be lovely.
