Decorating

The decorating has started. I found this little tree at Micheal's for $5.00, I wasn't happy with the fabric covering the base so I changed it and added the lights, it looks really festive sitting on my kitchen counter. I stitched the mat using this pattern from Country Quilts. If you click to enlarge you can see the snowmen.

I mostly collect snowmen for decorating and will show more of them later. Oops I cut of the top of the feather tree. This little gathering is also in the kitchen.

The little wool tree shirt has three snowmen each holding something different.

I'll be working on getting out the remainder of the decorations this weekend. I bought a new snowman this year, he's made of old barn wood. More soon.

Happy Stitching.

Will you please share the designer of the red tree skirt snowman piece.

It is adorable, as are your other snowmen, from yet another collector.
