It's beginning to look a lot like... season!

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 ( 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 


  1. Beautiful mantle! Your Christmas "light" looks great!

  2. I recognize the Santa on the right side of your mantel. I have stitched three of them so far.
    remember "Christmas is in your heart"


  3. Oh my, your mantle is stunning. Your bowl of smalls looks great. Do you have any information on the red, green and blue motif smalls? Good luck with the demolition.

  4. Love it all, especially the mantle. Happy stitching..............
