Soon it will be Christmas Day
I finally finished my red table cloth just in time before the Christmas Festivities started over here in J household.
I ‘ve lost count of the times, I just wanted to throw it away as I was making it, but the end result was totally worth all the tears .If you look really really close you can see the colour difference in the thread. I’m just too happy that I’m knocking out projects off the UFO list one by one, to be bothered by it now
Pattern: from the book Pineapple Lace
Hook : 1.75 mm Tulip
Thread :9 50 gm balls DMC size 10 thread
M decorated the Christmas tree this year mostly by himself .He decided on the theme too!
We’d picked up two boxes of red and gold ornaments from IKEA and he wanted to use only that for the tree.
I also made this little stocking ..I ‘m sure you all know where it can be found now. This cute pattern is from Sucrette’s blog.You’ll see a lot of them if you go blog hopping.
I used scraps of Catania Cotton for it with a 3.75 mm hook
The Christmas programme at the Sunday School was really sweet
A acted in a skit M was Joseph in the Nativity play
A was one of the Wiseman
I had a lot of fun dressing up the children and chatting with the other moms there.
Then it was time for the Carolers to come singing to our home. We lit up all the candles in the hall.
This is my entrance
All lit up and ready
My Christmas Cheer quilt.
Later we had a party for them too. I was busy entertaining the guests that I completely forgot to take pictures of the party and only remembered I had to take pictures when they were getting in their vans
