This year I've been slow to get the halls decked. Too many other things happening. It took me about 2 weeks to complete this little piece.
Paulette's blog. First she was inspired by a little centerpiece she saw on someone's blog. Here is the first post and here is Paulette's post where she shows us how to make a wool gingerbread man then puts her display together. It's cool the way each of us has put our own spin on it. The key element is the old sifter. I stopped at an antique store between here and the mall after a day of hard shopping. I found several but opted for this one with the crank on the top. I'd never seen one like that. Then I made the little quilt with some primitive holiday fabrics. I opted for cinnamon/applesauce cut out shapes, some fresh cedar branches and some rose hips. Both of those are too sharp for the cat to bother. Not a bad start. It's sitting on the breakfast bar above the sink so I can see it all the time.
