Christmas spirit....

The tree is up and the decorations have been distributed amongst the various vantage points in the lounge room...




I really enjoyed putting out the decorations this year..
I also picked up this lovely this morning..
There are some aspects of it that I am not 100% happy with but will have to live with it, I am afraid. Now to find somewhere to hang it... And where will I put it after Christmas is over?
just love this frame, not sure if it suits 100%, but I just love it.

love the red matting
I have been busy working on my down in the garden stitcheries for block 4. I just need some extra time in the day! Anyone have any spare?

Hope you have had some crafty time...
cheers
Marina

Love decorations!
I would leave the wreath out all year round. You only know it is Christmas designs when you get up close. It turned out just great.
didn't you do a tutorial for the yo yo tree in your header last year? If so can you send me the link. I have bunch of spools and I really want to make some of those and maybe even get started the first of the year. Thanks.
