I thought I would post a photo of my Christmas tree and display this year. It seems that each year it grows with cross stitched decorations from soo many of my wonderful stitching friends, decorations lovingly made for me throughout the years in exchanges and as special gifts. I get soo excited as I take them out of storage and go through them all. I dont use tinsel on my tree, I have never been a fan of it, so its just lights and my decorations.
This year I placed my tree in front of my bureau and used the top to display my collection of larger ornaments. I have had to use a chair to hold onto the stockings though as the bureau edges are bevelled and they dont hold up my pewter stocking holders, so I have had to place them on the edge of the chair and two others hanging from the chair top.
I'm hoping to expand on my reindeer collection after receiving the gorgeous silver one from Kim, however I have had the gold pair for a few years now. The Santa statue is a newer addition from about two years ago but I love his old appearance (I love the old time looking Santa's) and the hanging velvet advent calendar I have had for quite a while too.
I hope you have enjoyed a peek inside my home during this festive season.
In my last post I promised a start up picture of the ME stitch I am working on. Well here is a teaser pic, can anyone guess which design it is?
I also managed to sneak this little ornie finish in before the big day too!
I wish all my readers and wonderful stitching friends a Very Merry Christmas and JOY in abundance for the New Year. I shall be back soon with an end of year tally.
Ho Ho Ho Merry Christmas
