It's Begining to Look a Lot Like Christmas!

Meggie walks in humming a familiar tune and sets a pointsetia on the table. The picture behind the little side table is of a Victorian snow scene and it's frame is decorated with sprigs of holly and pine boughs.

Well as of yesterday the Christmas season officially began. Okay so for some folks it began friday, and for others it hasn't yet. But for me it has!

My Christmas dress is nearly done! or as done as it will be before Friday, which is when I shall need it. I'm singing at the Local Victorian mansion for their staff Christmas party. I'm sure it will be a grand time! But here's a preview of my dress. I've got an old Lace curtain (or something...) that I'm going to Dye black and make a shawl like drapey thing to go on top. And unfortunately I wasn't able to do ANY of the embroidery. But maybe by next Christmas. :D

Ehem you'll have to excuse the poor piano..

it's been Mustard Yellow as long as I can remember...

I've been meaning to repaint it forever.

Here you can see the mile long flounce along the bottom

Also you may notice the changes in my profile. Not only am I getting ready to decorate the house, but I've redecorated my blog

So I wish all of you a happy start to the Christmas Season! And I'll get back to you soon with the completed dress! (Super Sqee)
