Not much going on here -- just gearing up for the holidays. I sat down yesterday and made a couple of pillows. I had bought a half-yard piece of red wool (on sale plus a 40% off coupon) for $6; and I had some very nice old black velvet ribbon from an estate sale. I added some Ralph Lauren inspiration, and after a couple of hours on the sewing machine; I had these two pillows.
It seems that my house has a tendency to clutter up very fast with all of the Christmas decorations added. I thought maybe if I put away all of the print pillows and added these simple ones; it would help.
So, after next week's festivities with Thanksgiving, we'll get the Christmas stuff out and begin the decorating. It will be fun to see all of the old favorites again from the past 52 Christmases at the Salmagundi household.
May you all have a joyous Thanksgiving week.
