Post #18 of the 25 blogs...

Not too much sewing done yesterday.
We were busy with the
outdoor decorating.

Those of you who know me well
know that I am
not a fan of the
Great Outdoors!

I enjoy the indoor sports...
like sewing!

Anyway, it was important
to get this done while
my son is visiting...

So the checking of the lights
is always the first task...
all but one strand of the
icicle lights...OUT!
Buy new or say the heck with it...
All but 2 sets of the light nets for
the 5 bushes...OUT!

Buy new or say the heck with it...

So what works...
the two trees in the ugly urns...
not my favs but my husband likes...
OK...put them out there.
Of course my favorite...
Mr. Snowman Bird Feeder!
He stays out all year long but comes
to the front for Winter...

Thought about painting him over the summer
but decided against it.
He is perfect just the way he is!

Quickly made this mesh wreath.
Wasn't too happy at first but
then we decided to go with the
Candy Cane theme for a change and it works...

I pulled out some larger candy canes
and some greens and made a little
thing to hang on the house...
making another one today to hang
on the other side of the window
for balance.

The trees need some more red/white
checkered bows as does the
garland around the door
and then it's done!!!

Now I can get back indoors and SEW!

Happy Decorating!

Remember to leave a nice comment
to be entered into the drawing
on my Christmas Eve 200th post!
