I got the decorations on the tree today. Mostly Santa ornaments that I have collected over the years, and most of them were gifts. (click on pictures to enlarge)
I think teddy is waiting for Santa to put some presents under the tree.
My Christmas tablecloth quilt ( it is a vintage tablecloth that I added a red border to and hand quilted) made a good cover for the tree base. I had planned to add one of my quilted tree skirts but I don’t think it needs it.
I have several more Trees and I might put up a few more. I think I will do one with a sewing/quilting theme…..I have a huge bag full of wooden thread spools that would be great ornaments . Not sure if I will get that done this year, but I think it would be fun to do.
For now I feel happy to have this one done. It looks small up on the table but it really is 7 feet tall.
I think I’ll spend the next few days quilting…….but there is a lot of end of the year cleanup left to do in the garden. If the weather is good tomorrow I think that is the priority.
