Oh My Garland, Christmastime

Okay, I know this is mean.  You can sing the title of the post to the tune of Clementine.  See, now it's going to be stuck in your head all day.  
I have been busy working on goodies for the one and only show I am doing this year.  A little hometown bazaar in Athena, Oregon, December 8th.
I have been making several types of garland.  The raggedy one looks so comforting on the tree or in greenery.  

The pine cones add a bit of a rustic or natural look. 

 And then there is the rose hip garland.  I just love it.  I have considered keeping it (so selfish I know.)  I probably won't, but it is my favorite.  Rose hips dry up so neat that next year, even though they will have a little different look, they will still be beautiful.

I am taking the week between Thanksgiving and December first as a week of peace.  I mean in the house.  I have all the autumn decor back in the totes and put away, and I'm not bringing out the Christmas decor until next weekend.  I have moved furniture and cleaned in preparation for a tree and all the fixins, but I am just enjoying the clean.
Don't worry, I will have three trees in the house by Christmas.  I will show you those in due time. 

More to come,
Until next time
Nimble Fingers and Even Stitches

PS. In case you were wondering, I have 256 of the 396 Cathedral Window blocks ironed and secured with a little bead which will embellish the corners where each of those 396 blocks meet.
