Well, the tree is up and decorated! Big job!!! I wasn't going to put tinsel on the tree this year but it was bare to me as I love lots of glitter. In any case, why break with tradition as I've always put it on my trees. Even as a child, I put it on one strand at a time.
Please note my gorgeous tree skirt. Made for me by my wonderful sister, Joan. This was a birthday gift a few years ago before we left Newfoundland.
I received a pre-christmas gift in the mail this week. What do you think of these!!! Apparently, my sister measured my cushions this summer with Christmas ones in mind.
Here are a few closeups of ornaments on the tree - before the tinsel was added.
|Hand made by my friend, Marilyn in NL. Love this one!!|
This one was made during a textile tour to England in 2008. We visited a local artist and did these.
I received this Temari Ball during an ornament exchange at the St. John's Guild of Embroiderers, years ago.
Enjoy! Hopefully I get back into the routine of posting more to the blog. Thanks for visiting.
