I have been waiting 'patiently' to redo some parts of our house and since it would be just the 4 of us this year, I bought into the whole 'even if I have to set up a Christmas tree on subfloor' school of thought.
At first I thought that I wouldn't put up any decorations. After all, we have mapped out a plan as to where we are stuffing all of the furniture (don't open that closet!)...but then I decided a little would go a long way until I get the phone call to say the demolition crew would be on my doorstep!
So here is Christmas 'light':
I stitched this Bent Creek snow globe years ago, but it got a finishing do-over after last year!
I have a very few of these snowflake kits left. Email me if interested (firstname.lastname@example.org). They are $14 plus shipping and include chart, linen, woolfelt, button, and backing fabric.
Love my mantle! It's the one item I insisted on: whatever we did to the fireplace surround, I had to have a mantle!
I just love it when the only lights on in a room are the Christmas lights!
Enjoy the Stitch
