I finally made a couple of no sew fleece blankets last week. I have wanted to try one for ages, so I finally did.

This one is for my nephew's daughter

and this one is for my nephew's son

They were very easy to put together, each one took about 2 hours to cut and tie all the knots. I will definitely be making more of these in the future!!

Christmas Spirit!

The house is decorated, the gifts are almost all bought and wrapped, the baking has begun.
WAIT! This is me I'm talking about???
I have never had all this done this early before . . . never . . . ever. Not sure what came over me but it sure feels nice that I will be able to enjoy the holidays without the usual chaos.

Here are some pictures of the decorations.
The fireplace in the family room . . .
