The New Year’s resolution is still in tact. Nope, haven’t lost any weight, but an idea did occur to me while doing my annual Christmas pack up this year. When one hits “a certain age” as the French so politely put it, one never knows just how many 'Christmas unpacks and packs' are going to be left on the table, and I do so enjoy that process each year. Hey, I thought... why be glum about it? Why not ritualize it on a monthly basis? Hence the resolution was concocted to use up the stash decorating for the seasons. I do need deadlines, so I scheduled both book clubs chez moi in February. Twelve place mats from the stash that I may or may not use are completed and hopefully the two Valentine Wall hangings, and nine gift candle mats that are left to quilt will be posted shortly…. Hi ho Hi ho it’s off to work I go.
