I took down the Christmas tree this evening. What? I know... the time got away from me.
This did give me an opportunity to photograph my Christmas needlepoint ornaments for you to see. I made them several years ago. They are still precious to me as they were when I first stitched them.
This year's tree had a refreshing color scheme: Gump's sale lime green tree, vintage pink glass ornaments and my needlepoint ornaments. Too cute. It measures 36" tall. Just the right size.
The 8 vintage pink glass ornaments have flocked white snow caps with hangers attached. The box says The Christmas Gallery, Copyright 1967 by Krain & Canton, Inc. Made in USA. (The box is pre-barcode... sweet!) We found them at the thrift store several years ago; so glad to give them a new home.
Most of my needlepoint ornaments have a common theme: snowmen.
and a cat ornament, too.
Someday, I would like to build from Vicky De Angelis' inspiration of having a cat-themed tree. I already have some cat canvases. Here are four just ready to go onto stretcher bars.
Plus, I have a Kitty Cat tree skirt, too. Really, it is an apron but I like to use it as a tree skirt.
Sounds like the purr-fect project for 2012. Think I will check out my stash for threads.
Until then... Hugs, Robin
