Christmas Finish….or Plan C!!

 christmasthroughtheyearbutton It’s time to report in, and once again I just sneaked under the wire.  First the back story!!  My plan was to make an  easy peasy Christmas apron.  Last week I was showing it to a friend and now I can’t find it!  It’s here somewhere, just hiding.  So plan “B” was to make Pamkitty’s so cute potholder, which you can see here……problem, I didn’t have the right size rick rack.  So plan “C” was this super easy table runner004.  I goofed off today and spent the whole afternoon getting it together.  I am LOVING Allie’s monthly club.  It’s so hard to believe the year is half over!

My last post Debbie stopped by for a visit.  Well I just had to pop over and visit her.  She posted a picture of this wonderful OrigamDSCF0255i wreath…..and great news, here’s the tutorial.  Looks like it would be so much fun to make.  I have never seen anything like that before…very pretty!
 
002Bright and early I was off to the Post Office to mail Sharon her Santa Sack…once again..having Xmas presents hanging around for 6 months that you can’t open is going to be a real challenge….just sayin’!!!!
Our summer is officially here.  It is just plain hot and forecasts for the holiday weekend have even higher temps…..time for popsicles!!!!  Happy Thursday everyone.

I love your table runner, so cute with the prairie points. Your going to have some great Christmas decorations. That PKM pot holder is the cutest thing.

I recently heard that there's no such thing as plan B (or C), just the NEW plan A:) I like that!

You've been so busy, you'll be very organised by the time Christmas comes.

ROFL - oh Cheryl - can't find it - are you my sister? I LOVE that table runner, it's gorgeous! Can't believe you made that in one day. Wow. That origami wreath is spectacular, I'll have to check out the tute.

There is NO WAY I could have gifties hanging around that long. No way. Going to be hot here too....time to get the a/c in!

I got in under the wire too. Just before you. I love your table runner! Don't you hate when you can't find stuff that you know you have? I think it's a trait of creative people. ;)
