Christmas Take Two...No Thanks!

good afternoon!

my sewing corner is operational...
trouble is i'm still feeling a bit lazy.

as you can see...

the holiday spirit hasn't quite left us,
and mr m is showing us his 'bad santa' face...
just to scare of anyone who mis believes
 that santa may come for a second round!

i have started some curtains though...
to keep the afternoon sunshine at bay
in the dining room!

little by little
stitch by stitch...

just hanging in there
come and hang in there with me...
together we can do it!

naturally Carol xox


  1. Hooray to holiday sewing!!
    Don't like that Santa though. No jollies from him!!

  2. Love the butterflies on those curtains! Just lovely!! And as for that santa...maybe we should show it to the kiddos just to remind them to be *good* this year :-)

  3. Very nice carol. I have a sewing machine too. It sits alone in a corner of the bedroom at the moment feeling very sorry for itself. Maybe one day :O)

  4. Morning Carol! Your sewing place looks so nice with that quilt! I'm so happy that I have now speed with quilting...stitching one and having already many new in my mind...
    See you soon, have a lovely day!

  5. Little by little, stitch by stitch. I like that!

    I see that Belle magazine loitering there. But how lovely to give yourself the space to just 'be' for a while. We can't be productive all of the time, can we!? x

  6. Yes - I must get the sewing machine set up again and get back into it. I'm thinking about learning to quilt this year ... and a quilted mat for my sewing machine like yours may be just about the right sized project to begin with.

    Lovely curtains!

  7. Glad I'm not the only one who is still feeling a bit lazy. I just can't get motivated... to sew, to create, to blog. Hope we come out of it soon:)

  8. Curtains? Goodness, you're keen!

    Happy New Year to you, and what a lovely lovely image of your parents in the last post.

  9. That is a hot Santa! lol
