It's two weeks til Christmas. Do you know that I don't have a Christmas tree yet? My daughter basically called me a looser this morning! So, that means I better deck some halls pretty quickly or I'll be on the naughty list.
There's something to be said about being so busy that we forget the important things. Like making home festive. And inviting people in to share a warm fire and a cozy drink. Or a cozy fire and a warm drink! Starting a business is exhausting...and time consuming. And while I'm super excited about what's happening in our lives in that respect, good grief....we don't have a Christmas tree!
Shopping is done, and that's a huge relief.
Contract sewing is done, and that's a huge relief. I just finished the last of the American Girl dress sets and shipped them away!
How nice it was to attack my alterations pile! Two jackets down and three to go! I swore I would do the alterations before making anything new from scratch and I'm sticking to it!
Because a cute co-worker walked in this week wearing a duffle coat. And I was instantly in love. Such a classic, timeless coat! And I remembered that Collette has a new duffle coat pattern..The Albion. and now I want it. And I want it in this color:
Isn't this sharp?
Or how about this?
I do need a new coat.... but first, I'm going to make some Christmas tonight.
