Dear Hubby is on the mend. Progress is slow. The Orthopedic surgeon scheduled him for an MRI, but since he has a pacemaker they had to reschedule him for a CTSCAN. The radiologist didn't see any fracture in the foot and now have to wait to see the Orthopedic until January 5th. His foot is continually painful and and swells. I know that he is ready to get back to work, but there is some reason he is meant to be off until after the holidays.
My recent project on our home has been the dining room/entry. I've painted the trim and walls. Added trim around and on top of the doorways, hung new curtains and cleaned the french doors of the sewing room. I'm planning on building two tables for either side of the french doors and add a rug under the dining room table.

Christmas shopping was unusually tough this year. Since de-cluttering, buying items made me think twice if the receiver REALLY needed it and was it useful.........Girl M is 14 and I thought that it would be much easier if I just let her pick out what she wanted. She enjoyed shopping for herself way too much! Boy F is 17 and all he asked for was over $300 a piece. He's got good taste! Dear Hubby is with me 24/7 so shopping for him was impossible while at the stores so what little I bought, I did online. The most fun to shop for was our new daughter in law. She loves Pioneer Woman and I do love buying Pioneer Woman stuff! Perfect!!!!
I purchased fabric this past week from Fabricmartfabrics.com in hopes that it would spark my sewing mojo. I gearing up to sew but I also have a few rooms left to work on in the house too. I keep thinking I want a new dress, but it's still hot here in Florida. We hit a high this past week of 89 degrees. I don't wish snow and sleet, but man, my Christmas tree has dried up and is almost dead from the heat!
I'm thinking of maybe sewing up a yoga style skirt and a maxi skirt from a black jersey knit fabric that I've had too long. Maybe something easy will get my sewing mojo back! I also have three UFO's waiting to be finished. It would be nice to get them out of the way before the new year.
I wish all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy & Prosperous New Year!
Until next time...............
