I decided since we're in a new place and new traditions are part of the package this year, that I would get an earlier start on Christmas then ever before. For most of you that just means doing it when YOU are doing it. I am a traditionally late Christmas decorator. I got some fabric for $2. It was about 2 yards of a vibrant red plaid grandma polyester. I'm quite certain my grammy had a pair of pants made of this in 1979.
In order to cover my existing pillows but still remove easily I opted for an envelope closure on the back of the covers, which is also the easiest version in my opinion.
I wanted one to contrast so I tried to do an iron on applique but I think my fusible web was old or something. When that didn't work I just sewed in on instead.
Two of my old pillows had green on them so they got to stay.
Ta-da! All ready for Thanksgiving now :) I wanted to finish dinner and come home to a place already beginning to show Christmas cheer.
We ate with Strider's fam this year. We were missing one couple, but the rest of us enjoyed great food together. We had a niece and a nephew born this year, so, much to be thankful for!
I've never volunteered for the rolls before, but have been happy with this version lately so I went for it. Mmm.
Here's our nephew getting his first taste of solid food. What better time than on the holiday known for food?!
Princess sang a song about gratitude for us. It was a nice day.
