Monday Miscellany

The boys hung wreaths outside this weekend,
And I hung bows on the light posts.
Nursing school daughter brought home her fish, Doug. He'll be cute hanging around with lawyer daughter's birds, but they're no Thor insofar as entertainment value.
And, for Faye, here are my Philadelphia fabric purchases:
3 lightweight knits, perfect for next spring.

Background here: a dark olive sweater knit, topped by a pink knit remnant, a tan floral rayon remnant that's pretty heavy, a pink crinkly lightweight remnant, and a white sweater knit remnant (which just might stir my interest once the holiday circus is over).

Hope you're all doing well at getting ready for your Christmas and other holiday celebrations. Me, I'm just as overwhelmed as ever!

Gotta love a fish named Doug.

You did well fabric shopping - I thought you had more pink! I still haven't even moved mine to the studio. Someday.

My daughter says you should always give a fish a real name - then you can leave a message that says "Doug and I are sorry to have missed your call" and nobody knows you live alone! g

you're all so well ahead organised, as usual ! lovely outdoor decorations.

Christams will come, whether one is ready or not I guess... Looking forward to some days off for the holiday..

Those decorations look great. In our local village they tie small Christmas trees (3 foot) to every downpipe, street light and traffic light, it is quite unusual. I have not got to see the lights on yet though. Have a great Christmas Diane

My husband's name is Doug :-)
Thanks for your very nice comments on my blog!! What part of PA are you located? I grew up in Delaware County, loved it.

I like all of the fabric...looking forward to seeing what you create with it.

I am sure you have a lot of people coming home which will keep you extra busy.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year my wonderful friend Marjie! xoxo

Hi Marjie, of course I am all organised for Christmas here. Absolutely. Well sort of. Well, still organising but we'll get there in the end. Always do. Take care. No worries, and love, Carol (and Stella and Rory)

Love the fabric, Marjie. I can just imagine what you'll "whittle" out of it:) The decorations look lovely. We're going "bare" this year. Perhaps, next year when I can see straight, lol...

Thank you so much for sharing...A Very Merry and Safe Christmas to you and yours!

P.S. The ornament from Nichole is priceless...
