Last of the Christmas Decorating

I promise - these will be the last pictures of my Christmas 2012 decorating.


Primitive Box
on bench on Entryway

I purchased two berry vines on sale.  
One of them I put at the top of one set of 
kitchen cabinets using Command hooks.

The other one I put around the top of
my china cabinet.  I like the berries so much
I plan to leave them up for now.

Snowman Collection

Winter is almost over, but I would be remiss if I didn't share a couple of pictures of the snowmen which have graced our living room entertainment center since December.  These aren't all my snowmen - others are scattered throughout the house.  I will miss my snowman friends once they are packed away.

Frosty in the Firs

Yet another ornament which languished in the finishing pile for far too long.  I first reported on this lovely piece on January 28, 2012.

Deer in a Forest

Here is another ornament which I stitched a while ago, at the beginning of 2012 to be exact, but I just finished it this past Christmas. 

This is Deer in a Forest by Niky's Creations.  It was published in the 2011 Just Cross Stitch Christmas issue.  I love the way it came out!

2007 Pinecone Ornament

Long time, no blog.  This winter seems like it has lasted forever.  I think everyone is tired of cold, a little bit of snow, and the never-ending grey that dots our landscape.  But the tulips, hyacinths, and crocuses are pushing their heads up in our gardens, and we have heard the Canada geese flying overhead, so we know spring is on the way.  It's just a matter of time.

I finally went through the pictures on my computer, most of which were from Christmas.  I have some ornaments to share.  Not all were stitched last year; some simply languished in my finishing pile - and have now been replaced by others!

The first and only picture of this ornament I showed was way back here.  It is called 2007 Pinecone Ornament by Melissa Dunajski, and it is in the December 2007 issue (#23) of The Gift of Stitching magazine. 

I will be back shortly with more ornaments.
