    Am I the only one?

    Is there any one else out there who has been quilting instead of putting away Christmas decorations? I had the day off work and instead of getting my Christmas decorations put away, I spent most of the day in my sewing room. Anyone else?

    I wish I had .... I decided I'd better work on the de-Christmas-fying of my home. However, I'm stopping for the night and going to sew. The things have been stripped, and congregated. I can pack them away another day!

    Tonight ... sew!

    lol.. I haven't even thought about putting my decorations away... we just have lights up, so won't bee all that much trouble. I am sewing some today... worked on my quilt (handquilting) for a while and then found a Paper Piecing practice pattern, so had to try it... turned out beautifully! Now to try the snowflake block.... we'll see how well I take to PP!
    I quilt for my sanity!

    I put my Christmas decorations away the day after Christmas. I had the day off so I used the time to get it done. I have been busy sewing since.

    I enjoy my tree more after Christmas than before with all the hustle and bustle! So it will be up a few more days.

    My tree stays up all year, we just change the decorations on it. Next we will put on hearts for V day. We are so used to it being there that it is part of the furniture. My dgd wanted this, so it is there. lol

    My son came over and took down, packed away, and carried all bins to basement my Christmas stuff for me on Saturday. I am spoiled.
