* Christmas Pics to Share *

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas.
What a whirlwind it's been, but such fun too.
* * * * * * *
I wanted to share some Christmas pics with you now that the
holiday is over and I have some spare time.

Of course I love handmades, so the tree is mostly decorated with those and my collection of kugels, another love of mine.  I made a fabric garland  a many years ago that we put on the tree every year.  It's simple and prim and I love the casual look it gives.

Here is our prim feather tree with more handmade ornies, most of these I cross stitched years ago.

I love to hang this coverlet on the pie safe for a splash of red.

We usually have the fireplace going on these cold winter days.
We got about a foot of snow here in Philadelphia during that last storm.
Everything is covered in white.

I'm excited to say I've been doing some designing and should have a few new patterns out by the end of January.  I've also been stitching to my hearts content and will post pics of the finishes as soon as they're all done.
Stay warm friends and enjoy this beautiful season.
Happy stitching,
~Nan

What beautiful photos of your home. Everything is so warm and inviting. I thought everything was wonderful but especially love the pie safe with the red linen on it. Your fireplace looks very warm and inviting. It must be wonderful to sit near and enjoy its warmth on a winter day.
