Christmas doesn't happen all at once around here and I don't put it all away at once either. First the clutter goes. You know, the things that get in the way. All the glittery doo dads are the first to be packed away.
The puzzle has to come off my sewing table. I've got things to do. Taking it apart takes almost as most time as putting it together. Not really but it seems like it. It takes a while.
Every year I end up with a peppermint collection. Why do I always think it was a good idea to get hundreds of candy canes? Seriously, I bought a box of 110 candy canes. Why????
The tree stays up for a few more days but I don't turn the lights on anymore. It actually looks better unlit. I am going to have to work on the lighting next year. It was pretty bad.
The table runner and the new mini quilt are staying on the buffet until New Year's because I didn't want to relocate all that booze quite yet. We added a lot of bottles to the collection over the past few weeks and now I am going to have to do something about that mess.
Pup's not ready to give up her Christmas toys yet. Poor crinkly Santa took a beating this afternoon.
After cleaning up all the Christmas clutter what did I do? Watched an episode of The Crown 2 and played with some paper piecing.
I need a January mini quilt and I've got a stash full of blue winter themed material. Seems like a plan but can I get it done before the first? I doubt it but I'll give it a go.
