As promised here is part two of the Christmas cheer tour! This is the centerpiece on my dining room table. I love metal Christmas trees with simple baubles hanging from them.
This is the tree in my dining room. It has many decorations from South Africa hanging on it. The tree skirt was made by me many moons ago. I think it was actually the first tree skirt I made. One of my cats loves to sleep on it. I think he thinks it belongs to him!
This tree is officially called "The Naughty Cat Tree". It has only cat decorations in it. I add a few ornaments to it each year. This year I treated myself to a Jim Shore ornament. I made the tree skirt a few weeks ago. I know it is hard to see but the fabric is tree branches with cats perched on them. So sweet and appropriate for the tree. I have taken so many photo's of this tree and have yet to get a good one. The light in New Hampshire is not good. Even during a sunny spell.
I made another tree skirt for the tree in the family room. Every once in a while one has a project which gives you fits right from the word go. I had so many dates with my seam ripper etc. I nearly gave up on it. Then I thought it would probably be a good one if I just persevere. I am happy I did. I really do like it now.
Thank you so much for all the sweet comments during the course of the year. I have so appreciated each and every one. I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas. I hope you will get some time to stitch around the holidays and that not every moment will be spent in the kitchen. I can't wait to see all the lovely things you make next year.
