Even though these aprons were just cutouts (like from a panel) and all I had to do was seam up the four ties, turn under the edges and attach the ties, these are the kinds of things I never do! I saw these at a shop a few months ago and thought they’d be cute for mom and me to wear in the kitchen on Christmas morning. If it wasn’t for this stash busting effort, they would have been stuck back on the shelves and never made but . . they’re done!!! I made the first one and said to myself . . I’ll make the other one tomorrow! Then I said to myself . . No, you do both of them tonight! So, they’re both done and it feels so good to get them done.
Won’t mom and I be cute on Christmas morning while working in the kitchen!
Chad and I put the tree up today. It really looks kinda sad! We always got real trees at home — from a tree farm where we went and tagged our tree early and then went back and cut it the day we were ready to put it up. I haven’t seen any tree farms around here but I’ll be there are some.
This is the little tree that I had at my little house in town. That house had 8′ ceilings and the tree is 6-1/2′ so it was ok there. It isn’t so ok here! We have 10′ ceilings and it looks so tiny but mom has a 9 or 9-1/2′ really nice tree that she was going to sell at a garage sale but I told her I want it so I’ll have that for next year. We’ll make do this year. I cannot find my top ornament but there’s a box or two of ornaments that I haven’t found yet. Oh well . . this will be what we have for this year and maybe by next year, we will have found all the other stuff.
