Holiday Hiatus

Hiatus: 1. A gap or interruption in space, time, or continuity; a break

After Thanksgiving I had lots of ideas and even started what I thought might be a placemat.


















The more I thought about it the more I wondered if making Christmas placemats was a good use of my time. I have not bought a lot of gifts, we are trying to finish up our remodeling project, and I know this does not apply to anyone but me but my house needs cleaning.

We have decided to close in our screened porch. It won't be glassed in it is a new product with clear mylar panels that can be lowered and you have screen or raised and you are weather proof. We are hoping it will be finished by Christmas and I really want some furniture so we can use the room when everyone is home. We have been shopping for our new room. I am really excited.

And there are so many little things to be taken care of. Lights to put up, doors to be painted. Please let them be finished soon. I am tired of my space being invaded.

I did do a little sewing on my black and white snails trail. I am not sure how I like the one with the black on the right.

















We are taking our older grandson to Disney on Ice on Sunday for his birthday. His birthday is Christmas Day! It should be fun for all.

I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday with family and friends. Remember all of those who aren't as fortunate. I will see you on the other side. I will continue to read all the wonderful blogs out there. I enjoy everyone's blog so much.

I like your Christmas Placemats, or whatever they will be. Love the snail trails to.

I guess you don't always need a holiday to take an hiatus. Renovations, outings! It does sound exciting at your place though. The placemat is great. The snail trail probably sticks out because it is a solid. I like solids but it is sometimes tricky finding the balance of solids, almost solids and patterns. Happy holidays!

Sometimes smaller printed b/w's appear to look gray. I just finished a b/w top and pulled some
fabrics from the pile before I
started because of this!

...sniff...sniff....I want my back
porched closed in too!! It will be
sooo worth all the hassle when you
are finished!!

Take care!!
