A UFO finished and Taking the decorations down

Hello friends! I have joined a Challenge which is to work on UFOs on Tuesdays. Well, below is a before and after pic of my first finish of the year. It was a very small area that needed finishing but I have had these mats for years and just couldn't get to them. Now that they are done, I feel mighty good about myself!

Here is picture of finished mats, pressed and ready for business!

Below is pic of unfinished mats...what a chore to finish but they are done. 

This picture is another of my UFOs, a freebie from Jane Greenoff..I will be a very happy camper when this is done!

Well, then, tomorrow is January 6th and the official end of the Christmas season. I am sorry to see it go. I shall drag out the task of taking the decorations down and it will likely take at least 3 or 4 days! (I could do it in 1 hour but won't!). The Holly and Mistletoe Wreaths on the door shall stay on much longer, usually until the end of February.  I  have a lamp that burns scented wax and I love the scents of winter, and those will keep burning as well. We are enjoying a cooling of temperatures here in Miami which means the leather jackets are out as well as my flower scarf, which I rarely get to use...see pic below.

I shan't ramble on any longer! Have a lovely stitching time!
