Every year around this time, the Hubby & I have a discussion:
I want to put the Christmas tree and all the decs up on the 1st of December, he says it should only be done on the 16th.
Usually we end up with an acceptable compromise:
he shakes his head, rolls his eyes and humours me ; and the decs go up around the 1st.
Yay ; - )
So in preparation for next week, yesterday I did a wee bit of Christmassy sewing.
I bought the cushions from Next (seriously, I couldn't have bought the fabric and made them myself for that price), then cut two little reindeers out of some linen I had in my stash, appliquéd them on to the cover and added a touch of embroidery. A quick & easy make - just the kind I like.
(Have you discovered Bustle & Sew yet? If not, do pop over and be wowed by Helen's lovely creations. )
Sooo chuffed with them, I am.
So much so, that I just couldn't possibly pack them away until the 1st, so there they are taking pride of place and waiting to be joined by all the other lovely Christmassy things next week.
Sssshhhhh . . . don't tell the Hubby . . .

'til next time,
