BOM Rehab vs. Cleaning & Decorating

I almost forgot to pick a winner for the Schnibbles Times Two
and Another Bite of Schnibbles books!

The first number generated by random.org was #34 ...
interestingly enough that was Carrie Nelson (Miss Rosie's Quilt Co.) herself.
How does that happen?
Okay, second number generated was #22- BARB

What a wonderful idea! Thanks for the chance to win your re-gifted gift I have been drooling over the schnibbles quilts for ages :) Barb.
Congratulations... please send me your info and I will get these books in the mail to you!

My weekend...
After 9 hours of cleaning on Saturday, including shampooing carpets...
I relaxed and watched the White House tree decorating team On TV.

I never thought of it before!

They have a plethora of volunteers that decorate the White House...
and the Vice President's home as well!
I am  adding this on to my bucket list...
for someday when I retire and I can go to Washington... 
donate my time and play with the big league!

When I was young I had a short-term Christmas job with a Portland 
based department store 
in the display department. 
The theme was carousel horses. They even installed a real carousel on the 
floor that the kids department was on. 
It was amazing. I was able to travel to all of the branch stores 
and decorate them for Christmas. It was so much fun. 
So it would be icing on the cake for me
to be able to give a hand at the White house. 


Unfortunately I never did get to see the inside of my sewing room over the
weekend. I feel so bad that I don't have anything for
the BOM Rehab. But I am sure you understand...
and might have even been faced with the same dilemma...
play or get ready for the holidays...
or...
where you there?

I have been sewing a lot this week...but not for pleasure...for my Etsy shop...although I guess that's pleasurable! I love watching the shows about decorating the White House although I didn't see the one this year...that would be fun! Have a great week!

Hi Sinta! I missed the show about decorating the White House but even better I visited the real thing. I just posted about it on my blog. Don't you just love the video with Bo; it is too cute:)

I watch the White House Christmas show every year when it is on. Did you see where they have another show on about all the years they have been doing it?! It was great. When we lived in Alaska, a local woman (a florist) was featured on the news because she was selected to go help. I think it would be so cool.

That was hilarious that Carrie won the first drawing!!!

Hi Sinta! Sadly, I understand about the cleaning dilemma because I will be there tomorrow..after my treadmill jog. And don't worry, you know at sewing will be there waiting for your return.

Kris said...

I didn't behave myself this week for BOM re-hab, and only so few cuts left to make! This time of year everything just goes kablooey.

The sewing will still be there when things settle down - thank goodness for that :)

I've always wanted to volunteer for that White House decorating crew too! Let's both apply! Although, you have experience, they will pick you for sure. I love that Bo video, thanks for sharing!

I too want to volunteer to decorate the White House one day. I used to own a floral shop and I would love doing that. The other biggie on my bucket list is to work on the floats for the Rose Bowl parade and then to watch it in person.

Funny that Carrie won the first drawing! LOL!! The White House Christmas decorating special is great! I guess I missed it this year though.. Thanks for sharing the video. My kids will like it. :-)
