Helen's fireplace

Ta da! Here it is. The mantle cover fit EXACTLY on her mantle! I ran over this afternoon to take it to her and she loved it. I was afraid it was going to be a bit short of the 130" Helen first measured. The cover itself was only about 125". Maybe I didn't measure right, maybe she didn't, but, at any rate, it fit PERFECTLY. I still can't believe it. From end to end, just right! She will take the clock down and put up a wreath and there's no telling what else she'll put up. She's invited us, (Jim, too) back to the house once it's decked out in all it's Christmas glory. I am looking forward to it.

Now it's time to work on other Christmas items and swap goodies. I'd rather take a nap. It has been so cold today! I may just snuggle under my pink ribbon fleece blanket and snooze for 30 minutes or so. That usually recharges my batteries.

It's great.

Well done for realising you need a nap. Do it. You'll feel much better afterwards.

Love and hugs Gina xxx

That turned out lovely. How do you attach them to the mantle?
