It's a Wrap

No...not the quilt. I wish! This week has been only slightly productive for the free-motion garrison quilt. Progress amounted to tacking down the tree foliage and pinning up a sheet of parchment paper to draw patterns for the tree shadows.

However, things have been quite productive in the quilting studio itself. That's because it has become Gift Wrap Central.

After all, it's the perfect space--the cutting table is just the right height to wrap presents, and scissors and tape are always at hand. Add to that, the rolls of gift wrap, gift bags, bows and ribbons just happen to reside year-round right inside that little attic door in the first photo. So it only made sense not to haul all of that downstairs, as we'd had to do in the past, to the dining room table, where you are guaranteed a backache after only a few minutes of wrapping. (Granted, we did have to haul the gift items upstairs to wrap and then back down again to place under the tree. backaches!)

Making progress with the decorating. Now for the food.

Hooking up with Sarah at Whoop Whoop Fridays (she has accomplished far more quilting than I did this week!). And with Leah Day's FMQ Friday, where she's letting us link up with whatever we are doing these next two weeks, including holiday preparations--thank you, Leah!

Merry Christmas to all of you who celebrate it, happy holidays to all who celebrate in other ways, and a wonderful week to everyone in general!
