I'm taking a breather. It's been a busy weekend, and I'm gearing up for a busy week. A lot has been accomplished, but there's still so much to do! I decided I need a checklist...
☑ finish decorating (I finally added my favorite Ice Drops to my tree!)
☑ ravioli made
☑ Christmas shopping done
🗹 presents wrapped (I'm getting there)
🗹 grocery shopping
🗹 Christmas stockings made
🗹 mantle runner finished
🗹 catch up on reading blog posts (may never happen)
Although we've been busy, it's been a fun busy. I enjoy getting ready for family get-togethers, but I pace myself. I don't worry about everything being perfect. I just want my guests to feel comfortable, and I want to be able to enjoy the festivities!
My shuttle collecting continues! I love my new shuttles from Rita Richmond. Have you tried the shuttles that she makes? The have a wonderful feel and hold so much thread. I also like the Moonlit shuttles that she decorates. The hooks come in handy when I'm traveling.
I also ordered the newest design from Emiko Suenaga. The detail that these two ladies put in to their shuttles amazes me!
Can you tell that I love sapphire blue?
