I was a little more concerned about the wreath, but I managed to hang it on the door yesterday in all it's imperfect glory.
Today, in between doctor visits, I plan to make more Christmas balls. I found some on the internet that I liked quite a bit:
I like the use of pretty ribbon and colors she used.

The button balls a little wackier, with odd sizes, and larger buttons overlapping smaller ones. They're looser, and much quicker to complete, however, you do end up with more bits of styrofoam showing through than with the completely covered sequin balls. Since I have some new and exciting sequins to work with, that's what I'm making this week.
I'm grateful that there are always a lot of things I want to make in the days before Christmas: ornaments, a wreath or two, maybe a few Christmas cards, and something knitted or crocheted. When my hands are busy, I'm so much happier.
