All thanks to a tin *cough*two tins*cough* of spray starch.
We now have a giant wreath above the mantle piece & a trunk on the Christmas tree; Mr came running to me last night saying “Vic! There is no stem on the Christmas tree!”. Before then, I hadn’t realised it was a festive necessity but what the hey; two snips & a spray later a trunk appeared & it looks fine.
What is ace about using stash fabric for this stuff is that I am going to be able to make any number of other decorations with what I have left & it will all co-ordinate perfectly.
I don’t want to offend anyone but I was just thinking that this is one of my favourite things about being an atheist. Crafting in my pyjamas on a Sunday morning because I don’t have to be dressed or go anywhere. (I know it seems ironic to be putting up Chrissie decos & declaring my atheism, but Christmas has never been about anything religious for me, always about love, sharing & fun. It is my favourite time of the year.)
Plus, I think I’m just too lazy to be religious; there are commitments that come with that stuff don’t you know…
