Decking the halls

Hello friends!

I've been busy this week!  I went back to work this week after having the last 10 days off.  So there was lots to catch up on.  A flurry of emails, snail mail, book orders, etc. etc.  

Last Sunday Mike and I helped the kids get moved into their new house.  Holly was very sick with a stomach bug, so she was benched at our house on the couch.  But, we got it done, and I also got the boxes unpacked for the kitchen and everything put away.  Then I've also been busy helping do curtains for the kitchen and bathroom.  Best part was Holly finally felt better by the next day.  

Then, after the big move, and work, I've been trying to get our house decorated.  I have to share a few of my favorite Christmas stitches.

I have more Christmas stitching that I haven't shared.  I think it's so much fun to see pictures of your homes decorated for the holidays.  
I have a small collection of snow globes.

Here's a shot of our tree.  Many of the ornaments I've made but many others are from exchanges with our stitching group.  

One last snow globe, on our kitchen table.

I really like how this one was finished.  That is my sister's finishing efforts on my stitching.

A prairie schooler favorite.

I hope you enjoyed the Christmas tour of stitching on display at our house!  Thanks for visiting.

  6. Love seeing your decorating! So many beautiful ornaments, and such lovely decorations! Glad your DD's stomach bug didn't last long. Those are no fun at all.

  7. It was wonderful seeing all your Christmas stitching! That Santa tree inspires me. Yours is not too big. I think I could handle that.
