that I am finding ALL these really nifty Christmas patterns to make NOW? It's not necessarily that the patterns were created now but I *found* them now.
For Christmas Day, we always use Mr. Pirate's Mom's cream-and-gold china. It's gorgeous. I have a dark royal blue tablecloth that sets the dishes off beautifully. I was thinking that a cream/gold/blue table runner in the middle of the table would be a nice change of decorations this year. I've found a couple of suitable ideas .... but where am I going to find the TIME to do them???
They aren't terribly complicated (well ... hopefully not TOO complicated :-) ) but I'm still finishing up a major Christmas present (no details ... "people" actually read this blog!) and all the other stuff for Christmas that needs to be done.
I can just see me starting a nifty table runner and getting MOSTLY done but not in any condition to be used. heh .. maybe I just should do that so that I will get it finished for *next* Christmas! :-)
