Ready for Christmas!!!!!!

So here it is the first Saturday of December and I am ready for Christmas......yes ready and waiting. I had been worried that I would not get all the gifts done but I worked hard and they are complete. I finished off the last 2 this week and I am so happy that I was able to get them done. If I had stayed on my schedule that I made for myself at the beginning of the year I would not have been so close to Christmas with the finishing. But as all us stitchers do I let myself get distracted with new patterns and fun SAL's. My last 2 finishes are a Santa and a pig. I have a friend that is from Austria and in that culture pigs are lucky so I made her a towel with a little pig on it.
 And that was the last of the stitched gifts but I still had some homemade gifts to finish. Every year I try to find a new idea for snowmen and this year I came up with this cute candle holder. Inside the heads of these cuties has one of those battery candles.
Some other sewing that I did was items that I had a commission on. I have shown you some items that I make for sale and these 2 were order and I had to get them done for the customer.Yeah I know Halloween but that is what she wanted........
And the day after Thanksgiving is my day to decorate the house for Christmas. I have done this ever since I had my son. His birthday is on the 28th, so the day after Christmas all the decoration come down so that he has a separation from the Holiday. So I have a house full of Christmas and I love it. I collect snowmen and they are the majority of my items. I have 69 figurines/decorating items, I have 15 ornaments for the tree and I have 8 cups/plates/towels. Along with all of that I have a full 8 foot tree with nothing but Disney ornaments (97) and miscellaneous other decor. 

And finally the trees. The one with the blue and silver has my snowmen, the other is the Disney tree. 
Now that Christmas is ready and waiting I can get back to stitching for me. From now until the end of the year I want to spend all my time on my HAED Snowman. I want to get a big portion of it done.

  1. What pretty decorations. I have snowmen and Santas that I collect. I have enough ornaments for two trees, but we cram them all on one large real tree each year. Sometimes I wish we had one smallish artificial just so I could have a home-made or glass ornament theme.
