Santa's Workshop

Not that I could replace the one and only St. Nick and his original workshop.
Because my workshop is not making toys but fabric goodies.
Nonetheless, my workshop is full of activity.
Only I do not have little elves helping me out.
Although, a kitten named Ace thinks he is helping me out when he grabs
 an end of fabric and starts playing Tug o war with me. LOL

 I have Christmas fabric everywhere.
Wreaths and garlands hiding in the spare room away from Ace
who thinks that these items should be chewed on.

Never enough time to get everything done that I would like to.

Bob and I are also doing an antique show in two weeks,
so trying to get ready for that as well.
