It's beginning to look alot like Christmas...

and a white Christmas it will be. We have only a trace of fresh snow this morning. Mostly of this was from the storm a week plus ago. It makes all the skiers and snowmobilers happy. 
 I'm far behind in getting ready for Christmas but I did manage to bring out the Christmas Pineapple Blossoms quilt for the back of the couch. Looks good there, but "oh my"...those pillows need help!!
 A couple of Hoffman Christmas fabric panels(years and years old) will do the trick. I turned them into simple pillowcases, and stuffed the offending pillows inside. It does look better, doesn't it??
 
A nice close up...I'm pleased with my effort. Onward to the Christmas tree,hoping I can get it up today and a few more decorations put out. Lots of holly jolly to everyone who like it *VBS*

The sofa looks all Christmasy now...your quick trick with the pillow covers just did the trick.

Stay safe - don't make too many snow angels this week.

Everything does look Christmasy now. Hope you don't get too much snow.

I really like how easily you fixed the pillows, they are beautiful now and your Christmas quilt is so cheerful and happy, I think it's gorgeous.

Sad to read about your lungs, hubby's grandfather only had one lung functional so I know some about how difficult things can be. Hope you are in better health now than the other day.

Love your Christmas pineapple quilt! You want to come over and do my pillow covers now too? ;- )
I keep threatening to do that for ours but haven't followed through yet.

Hope you have a Very Merry Week :- )

Your Christmas quilt is wonderful. Yes, I agree that you brightened up your pillow quite nicely.

Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

That's a lovely quilt--and great job with the pillows.

Your cushions look very cheery & festive!
Gom has 'lost' our Christmas tree, so sadly there will not be one for little SG to admire- I was going to let him decorate it with me.
I do wish you a wonderful Christmas Finn, with Peace & Joy & Love.
Love Megxx
