More Decorating

Yesterday I did a bit more decorating and got the tree put up. I usually have more done by now but this year it's slow and steady. So here's the tree all lit up and full of decorations, a lot of them that I've made over the years. I also finished hand sewing the binding on the new tree skirt you see under the tree.
A couple of wool ornaments that are my favourites. I made these a few years ago.
Got to have a few cat ornaments.

This little mitten hanger is done in needle punch.
This morning I woke up to find several of the decorations scattered on the floor. Some of these were half way up the tree. A little better view of the tree skirt, this pattern was from Moda Bakeshop posted I think about June.
I have no clue how this guy gets into so much mischief. He chewed some of the garland way up on the tree and the tree was still standing, that's a neat trick.
Lula is always such a good girl. She sits and watches the mess Boo Boo makes but doesn't get involved. She's the good kitty.

Happy Quilting.

Oh, that BooBoo does look like a mischief maker. I'll never forget finding on or our cats perched almost at the to of the tree one year.

A lovely tree. Such cute ornaments and your tree skirt is perfect.

Your wool ornaments looks so cute!! I'm tempting to make one for myself :) Boo Boo may recognize his ornaments on the tree and just wanted to say hello? And your tree skirt is beautiful. I will have to check with Bakeshop later.

Linda said...

LOL! Looks like double trouble. I think dangling ornaments are just too tempting!

Cheryl said...

The new tree skirt is lovely! BooBoo loves it!

Perry said...

Your ornaments and tree skirt are wonderful. I haven't made any from wool, but a long time ago I made some from felt, which I gave to my girl grandchildren last year after I decided it was just too much trouble to decorate for Xmas. Love the cats, and yes they can truly do amazing things without breaking anything, can't they?

Sharon said...

Love your cat!....must be related to my Maxine, she is always on the hunt at Christmas to claim her very own ornament from the tree! I LOVE your wool ornaments, especially the cat! Everything looks beautiful!

LOVE your tree skirt - very cute. Your tree looks beautiful as well - now wouldn't you have wanted to watch Boo and see how it all worked, lol.

Libby said...

Well, in BooBoo's defense, I would say that a Christmas tree and its decorations really just looks like a giant cat toy. How can it be resisted?

Stephanie said...

A case of good kitty, bad kitty! Such sweet faces they have. Very sweet woolie ornaments.

Susan Being Snippy said...

Thanks for the tree photo, I have no room for a tree and love to see what everyone else does with them. They are so wonderful, even with mischievious cats to go in and re arrange the placement of ornaments -- love the wool ornaments, too!

wannabegodly said...

I really love the tree skirt! I'm definitely gonna have to find that pattern. I've been needing one. Funny kitties, too!

Candace said...

Hi Wendy! I love your tree skirt and the wool ornaments are beautiful! I may just start making some of them now for next Christmas!
Cheers!

Vesuviusmama said...

I've never worked with wool, but those ornaments seem like nice, small projects to start with. Love the tree skirt. I have my own handmade tree skirt under the tree this year for the first time, and I love it!

Carole said...

What a sweet tree! I do like those ornaments! Adorable! Do you make your own rusty bells? Seems I remember reading a recipe on the subject! I just haven't tried it. Bought lots of bells for when I'm ready! lol Thanks for sharing! Cheers!
