Dad moved into American House in Troy this year (he loves it), and each senior has a shelf outside their door. Some leave it empty for mail drops and some decorate. My sister told me as she had decorated for the last two holidays I was in charge of Christmas.
I believe we can call this a success! I must give credit Rana of Sewn Into the Fabric for the great technique of cutting bias binding for small projects. It really made a difference!
