It was a really relaxed Christmas, and even though I had guests over all that time, it was very stress-free. I must say that I did not actually get to do much sewing, since my sewing setup is in the basement, and I could not bring myself down there, away from other people.
However, this did happen three days after Christmas. As my sister, my husband and I stared at the fixtureless ceiling in the family room, we had this conversation
Me: I want a Lit Giant Fluff Ball hanging from the ceiling.
Sister: Huh? (Staring at me now)
Husband: Er… sure. (He knows better than to argue with me)
Me: Yeah, a Fluff Ball.
Husband: OK, where can we get this “fluff ball”?
Me: Well, I’m going to make it out of Ikea parts and coffee filters.
Sister: Um, are you sure that is going to work?
What do you think? Pretty, huh?
Here’s how it looks like when it’s lit.
So, if nothing else, I can say that I made a light fixture during the Christmas break, and everyone who was at the house contributed.
