Working on some hexagons...

 Have you been sewing?  I've done very little sewing the past few days.  I had an appointment yesterday so I wanted to take something with me to work on.  I didn't have any of my applique baskets prepped and wasn't in the mood for my yo-yo's so I took my hexagons.  This is my very slow project.  LOL!  It is something that I really have to be in the mood to work on.  So I got a few of them done while I was waiting.  
If you remember the other day I was talking about decorating the house for Christmas and my dreams.  My dream was to be living in this house and we are.  It is hard to decorate when the inside is unfinished, but I'm trying to do it anyway.  Hunter has been helping.    

Here is Hunter's little village.  I let him decorate and set however that he wanted and this is what he came up with.  This is in my kitchen...btw.  Do you see that he made a little thing for the sleigh to slide down?  He is creative.  I was a little excited about it too since this was the first time that I have ever had the room to set it up.  LOL!  Yep!  I bought these several years ago and never had the space to display them, but I knew someday that I would have.  
We have a couple of special buildings.  This one is "Drew's Bicycle Shop"  I bought this one for Andrew.  
This one is "Hunter's Lodge" and of course it was bought for Hunter.  
 I've not bought any new decorations this year, just using what I have.  Here is the dining table...
 One of the things that bothered me about decorating was that I had big dreams of decorating my banisters and balcony area.  Well, since I don't have my banisters up yet, I just had to get a little creative.  Thanks to a friend that gave me the idea, I got a few of my Longaberger baskets out and cut apart an old Christmas tree, added some bulbs and gold picks.  
 Oh, I can't wait to get my banisters and trim finished....someday.

Here is the top of the entertainment center.  Can you tell that those are 2, 3ft Christmas trees on their sides?  :)  
Leo wanted to help too.  Actually, he doesn't even try to bother any of the Christmas decorations.  
He is still on medication for diarrhea, but it is a little bit better.  Still not where it should be but better than what it was.  He has put on 4lbs since we got him.  You can still see his backbone and ribs but nothing like you could when we got him. I'll do a before and after later.  
 I haven't put my tree up yet.  I plan on putting it in the corner to the left of the entertainment center.  I haven't found my ribbon yet so that is why it isn't up yet.  I have a small round coffee table that I plan on sitting it on top of, that should make it a little taller.  

My sewing room looks like a bomb went off.  I have 8 big totes of Christmas decor pulled out in my sewing room.  I'm trying to sort though and pull out what I want to use for this year.  

Mom will be flying home on Friday night, so I'm super excited about that.  She wasn't home for Thanksgiving but she will be for Christmas!!!  That makes me very happy!

Hunter did a nice job on the village. I love the runner on your dining table! What a clever idea on your stairs. Looks great!
Glad to hear that Leo is gaining. He is surely grateful to be well taken care of.

Love the decorating, especially the stairs.

The hexagons look great. I've mostly been sewing Christmas presents, but I did sneak in a few moments for my hexagons this week.

Everything looks wonderful, Kristie!

Your house is looking great! I have a hexie project I have been working on since March, it's slowly but surely getting done!

All your decorations are looking great. The stairs are very festive and I love your clever idea atop the entertainment centre ... I would never have guessed :)
