a tiny update
The Christmas tree has been conquered and the house is slowly but surely getting back to normal as stacks of bins and boxes turn into decorations.

On the sewing front I had grand plans yesterday for all sorts of sewing progress, very little of which happened. Stupid sore neck. I almost finished cutting out my Victorian corset. I'm having a hard time deciding on a fashion fabric for the outside. I thought I had found the perfect thing last night but when I went to cut it out there wasn’t enough. Moo. So I need to look at the stash again.

Your Christmas tree is up before Thanksgiving? wow

Hope you find something fun for the corset! Stash stopping can be fun, once you find the right sub-stash (in my case).

Yeah. We usually put the decorations up in Nov this is early even for us. Thanks to events and trips and open houses and family obligations and such Mom decided to start last week. I didn't argue with her.

I agree: don't mess with momma! My mom loves putting the tree up, too, though not till after Thanksgiving.

Well at least your mom's Christmas frenzy is over! (Or has it only just begun?)

Oh no, it's nowhere near done. Just the tree, which was my responsibility this year. The upstairs studio and kitchen are more or less done. She still has the downstairs (filled with her ceramic Christmas village vignettes plus a second smaller tree), her office, her bedroom, the lights in the windows and all the outside decorations. Thankfully it's all her show now, I’ve fulfilled my obligations.

Personally I'd be fine with the one big tree, Christmas tea cups in the china cabinet and a wreath on the door but like I said it's her house. :P

I hope your neck is feeling better now!

I'm having good days and bad. It is better but I think that is mostly because I've been taking it easy and not decorating a Christmas tree the last few days! :P
