“Necessity is the Mother of Invention”

I don’t know who first said this, but this is what I felt today while doing prep work for Christmas Dinner tomorrow night with the whole family.  I had made a cranberry jello salad and put foil on it to be able to slide in the refrig.  Foil would not stay on and I was out of saran wrap and big containers with lids.  I came to the sewing room looking for a rubber band and saw a book mark I had made and not put away.  This turned out to be just perfect and looks lots better than a rubber band.  Don’t you think?IMG_20171221_102936454IMG_20171221_103001173Too bad it isn’t more Christmas inspired.  Imagine a gingerbread man on the side, or a tree, Santa, little bells…What a fun idea for any holiday.

Got the dinner prepped and the table set up somewhat and will finish up tomorrow.

This afternoon I will work on some more “Book marks” and see about changing Halloween orange to Christmas green or red.

2018 will bring finishing 2 quilts that have the quilting started, and then lots of fun projects.  What do you have planned for 2018?  Everyone have a Wonderful Holiday.

Have  Very Merry Christmas and a Happy, Safe New Year.
