for the Festival of Lights
I've been cleaning house the last few days getting ready for our family gathering this Saturday for Chanukah! My sewing machine table is cleared off so we can eat at it. Sewing machine is hiding down there on the floor. I feel lost without it being out. I should have taken a "before" photo of my design table, as it was piled so high with fabrics and stuff you could not see those photos on the mantel behind it. Now it's a neat clean area begging me to come and start a new project. And not quite the eyesore in our family room it was before. I had to hide bags and bags of fabric into two big plastic garbage bags and put them in the garage for now. Tons of embellishments and sewing tools went into a cupboard. I miss my mess! Out came the dreidels for spinning and games; out came the Chaunukah projects to do with the kids (I found on line)...out came the party plates and napkins my best friend, Patty gave me last year! And out came the books about Chanukah...and Curious George! More about him in another post.
