And we're done

Time is passing in a blur lately.  Very busy week at work and another busy-ish weekend.  Housework and washing on Saturday morning and the rest of the day was taken up with Christmas decorating.

One of the many boxes of decorations
Mum came over later in the afternoon to decorate the tree while I worked on the loungeroom (the family room was finished last weekend).  John had gone to work by this stage of the day (probably a good thing for him).

We were finished by tea time.

Kitchen through to family room
Family Room:


I took Mum out for tea to her favourite take-away (Subway) then came home to a night of wrapping presents - I miss having my live-in present-wrappers.

Yesterday I was able to quilt for most of the day (in between changing threads on the embroidery machine).  One Bizillion Years BC is a custom quilt for a Christmas present.  Finished the quilting late yesterday afternoon.

I decided to give the stitch-in-the-ditch attachment for the walking foot another go.  Can't say I like it any better than when I first tried it - I think I ditch-stitch better without it.  Anyway, the quilting is done, the binding is attached and almost stitched down.  Will be finished tonight while watching tv.

I really enjoy seeing all the decorating and Christmas sewing all around the world.
