Once I had the visitors in the door. .
I directed them straight away to the sewing closet.
Perhaps I felt this was my biggest challenge and where it all began.
I spent days making the ribbons for the chairs and garland. ..
and you may also remember me sewing aprons during nap time here.
I sewed up a little apron for grandgirlie with the leftover fabric and left it in the sewing machine for "demonstration" purposes.
I removed everything that did not come under the "Christmas color" requirement ..
and left the red and green rick rack . .threads and even the future Mennonite Girls Can Cook pot holder giveaways.
My friend Becky lent me a beautiful green velvet dress that she had made for her daughter years ago. . .it matched the greens perfectly.
The rest of the sewing room "stuff" was boxed up and sent to have holidays in the garage.
I said as I sent it out. . . ."you can be the focal point for my "Easter open house" when pastels are the feature". .
Tomorrow Oops I mean Monday. . .the bathroom that kept wanting out of the tour.
