I finally got a tree up. I decided it looks just fine without adornment. Plus I got all snuffley and went to bed early. I slept 12 hours, got up and finished reading All the Pretty Horses by Cormac McCarthy. I'd read The Road, so a co-worker recommended Horses, and I have to say I agree it is superior.
So, the book done, off to the sewing room.
There is a whole of stitching to do.
Gotta love my dollar store gardening gloves with the fingers cut off!
