My Christmas Tree is Up (not decorated, y’unnerstand…) !!!

And so it begins – the annual visitation of the ornaments.  Many friends (and some family) tease me relentlessly because as each ornament is unwrapped before hanging, the story of how it came to be in our collection must be recalled.  Some were gifts from loved ones, some were carefully made by the children long ago.  Some are treasured hand-me-downs, things that hung on our parents’ trees.  It runs the gamut from funny little plastic things from the lean years to exquisite hand-blown glass balls.  Not to be forgotten are all the needlepoint ornaments – what fun to remember where we were while stitching each one with love.  So, it takes quite a while for me to go through all of them, taking time to relive, remember, and rejoice in each little vignette. It will take several more days to get them all unwrapped and on the tree, but a great deal of fun will be had in the interim.

The picture below is a finished piece stitched by yet another friend.  It is the Candy Town Village designed by Deborah Wilson of Beau Geste, now Bella Donna.  It is a magnificent piece, probably still available fully kitted with stitch guide included.  Follow the link to their site to check on availability.  It was a great fun piece to work, too.

My next post will have some suggestions for gifts for your stitching friends,  and maybe a few random goodies, too.  Keep on stitching!
