There is a light at the end of the Tudor Tunnel.
I got the patterns for the metal thread applications transferred and painted this morning.
I have to wait for the paint to dry before I do anything else on this.
BUT, the Christmas tree is up. Dearly Beloved has had a miraculous recovery--note that it occurred on the day after Thanksgiving, which is when he wants the decorating to begin. Anyway, I will start decorating the tree as soon as he brings the boxes of ornaments downstairs.
