The last 5 days we've been rearranging furniture, cleaning and decorating. Now we have a decorated Christmas tree. Since then I've only managed about 15 stitches during the whole time and I miss stitching like crazy. Thought I would share with you some photos of our decor.
I moved my Gingerbread Village Street piece and set out the baking Elf's set from Hallmark underneath it.
Because our tree looks like a Charlie brown tree before everything goes on. I didn't add too many ribbons this time. Really it takes about 1 month to decorate the tree as my mother had but I didn't start early. But the tree is up:)
Can you see a nest under the fairy?
See the 2 sets of large fairy wings? I had bought them at a Renaissance faire.
Thought I would end with these stockings I had made loooong ago. The designer is Mary Englebright.
I am still waiting for my Christmas Eve by Prairie Schooler to came back from the framers.
Wishing you peace, laughter and lots of fun preparing for Christmas and great stitching too!
With my Love and Appreciation - Annette
