So, we are once again entering a very quiet Christmas celebration. The Covid cases in our area are again soaring, and I'm hiding!
The church will be closed until the new year, and knowing this, last Sunday there was some tidying of things that won't be required when the building reopens. So, a friend brought me a wreath that had been hanging on the door. With no one using the door, she thought I would enjoy it, and I do.
It now graces the wall on the other side of my front door, where it can be seen from the street.
The Christmas tree is up and decorated, though there is only us to enjoy it.
My entirely cat friendly tree. It is just lacking garlands.
I made Christmas masks for people I want to keep safe. These are the grown up ones. There were kid ones as well.
I keep seeing advice to ditch your cloth masks. If you are following the rules for social distancing and your mask has three layers including a filter and provides a good close fit to your face, then go ahead and keep using it. The environment will thank you.
I finished another Sesame Street hat. This one is Elmo.
I modified the pattern that came with the kit because apparently my favourite five year old has a bigger head then the pattern suggests. This is a much better fit.
When my kids were younger, I often made them pajamas for Christmas. I decided that I should make some pajama pants for the next generation.
When I bought the fabric, I forgot to add an extra fabric allowance for the fact that the fabric is one way and I can't turn one pattern piece around. Obviously, it has been awhile since I did this. However, I managed to squeak out a pair of pants out of my yard of fabric. The second pair isn't a one way design so it should be easier.
