Whew! Did everyone survive Christmas? Ours turned out a little differently than we had planned. Dave's brother Ken ended up having open heart surgery (quadruple bypass) on the 21st. I am happy to report he did fine and came home from the hospital today. He is a few years older than Dave and their family has a history of heart problems. We are keeping him and his family close in thought and prayer.
I finished my French Urn Rug yesterday! The binding is sewn on but I have to hand stitch it down on the back yet. I couldn't wait to hang it above the fireplace.
After looking at my photos I think I need to rethink that wall in the living room. It's always been a problem to decorate for some reason. It has undergone many changes over the years and I never really am quite happy with it. There are too many shelves that I can fill up with things.
Lately I've wanted more of a simple and pared down look. But...... I have lots and lots of stuff! Stuff I still like..... some I could part with. So I am hoping in 2013 I can do a little more downsizing. Maybe I should have a weekly yard sale here on my blog! LOL!! It's a thought. I bet most of you are in the downsizing mode too! I actually dropped two bags full of "stuff" at Goodwill today.
What about you... do you get in the mood for changes this time of year or is it just me?
