Motivation needed

You would be forgiven for thinking that I had given up blogging. Goodness, my posts have been few and far between lately. I have been busy, but that's not much of excuse when the reality is that I have 4 cushion covers that only need about an hour's work in total to be finished and they have been that way for over a week now. So, I'm telling you that in the hope that public accountabilty will shame me into finishing the bloomin' things by Sunday. This Sunday.

For some reason Christmas decorating seems to be exempt from my procrastinations skills. I'm chomping at the bit to put up the decorations. My husband (aka Scrooge...) does not share my enthusiasm, so I'm having to wait until Thanksgiving is passed. Luckily he has yet to notice the yarn trees and snow globes have already been snuck out...... and that I've already started putting the kids to work on adding to our homemade ornament collection. Here's our little button trees inspired by these, to go with our button wreaths and button garlands.
October 11th was the tenth anniversary of my moving to the USA. I think that I might have lived in the US too long: I almost called the cushions 'pillows', even though they are not going on a bed. It seems that I've now lived here so long that I have to stop and pause to remember which is American English and which is British English. I will never call trousers pants, mind.
