Just for Me
I got busy last night and picked out a background piece of fabric for the pretty Christmas stitchery Margaret made for me.
The I backed the part of it that would show through the mat with batting and another piece of fabric. Then I quilted the background with a small meandering stitch. Next, I sewed the stitchery to the quilted fabric with a machine blanket stitch.
Now it is framed, hanging on the wall in the dining room. So far this is absolutely the only Christmas decorating I have done. Pitiful, I know. I'm just not feeling it yet. And I'm getting complaints from daughter Ru about the lack of said Christmas decorating. I'm thinking that looking at this happy picture will get me going.
On another note, I know I haven't written much about Chloe lately. She is still ruling and reigning here. Just a little while ago I caught her trying to shred the curtains in the dining room to get into the sunshine coming through the window. So, being the enabler I am, I put a chair inside the curtain for her.
She wants to be alone.
Hope your day is going great.
Hugs and kisses,
