I was tricked, on Halloween, I mean asked, to be in the Christmas Tour of Homes. We have a beautiful new home (2 years) and I love showing it to everyone, but I always have a finish it, fix-it, to do list that simply doesn't want to go away. The last week or so I have been getting LOTS done, including making and hanging a Roman shade, 6 decorative bed pillows, pieced a comforter and shams, and painting a large bathroom last night. Today I got the binding on a Christmas gift(comforter), and painted a picture for my upstairs landing, and tonight recovered 6 chair cushions. I'm really on a roll, but have a wedding to go to this weekend, and a long trip to the airport, and will visit my son's family, & twins. Can't wait! I am having Thanksgiving at my house on Friday, 16 people, all but 2 of whom stay over for 1-3 days! Then I have only a week to clean up again, get the beds re-done, etc., and be all decorated for the open house on Dec. 3. If you hear someone screaming "HELP!!!!", it's probably just me! In case I'm too busy next week to post, Happy Thanksgiving to all my Spark Friends!
