Christmas Time....

Hello December!  Time to pull out the sparkle (aka bins & bins!) and make things merry & bright (messy!) around our home.  Last weekend we pulled out the Christmas tree and decorations and got busy on it.  We all love the look and smell of a real tree but since a pine allergy affects us all, we couldn't use live trees anymore.   Found this realistic looking tree at a local garden shop and we just love it.  It's four years old now and it's as pretty as ever.

Hope all is merry & bright where you are!


  1. Hello Laura!! I saw your post on the Cottages Stitch Along and thought I'd pop on over!! Small world....I am also a TA and live in NC.... Please visit my blog and email me...We may live near one another!

    I am still waiting for my chart, but am ready to go once I receive it...I am stitching mine individually so I can pop them in and out of the frame.... I stitched BBD Anniversaries the Heart in 2011 on one large piece and loved it...
