Christmas is such a special time of the year! The decorating, the baking, the hustle and bustle.
The white angel tree is in the guest bed room.
The sheep are keeping watch (the shepherds are taking a break). The whitework runner was purchased a few years ago at a local craft fair. Sadly the lady who made the runner lost her son in a traffic accident shortly after the craft fair.
The needlepunch angel is a Hands to Work design and the Merry Christmas is a Goode Huswife design (I think).
We like to keep the lights on and the home fires burning.
Whoops! This furry helper has run out of decorating steam and is taking a badly needed rest break and nap. We can learn a lot from cats.
I still have goodies to made and bake to share with the neighbors, Christmas Cantata to attend, fresh greens to pick up at the nursery, Holly to cut from the garden, ivy to gather, and. . . Christmas is a very busy time of the year.
