Starting to look like Christmas here...

Well, I have my tree up, or should I say trees. I have 3 skinny trees that I am using in a group.Each is decorated diffident but having them stand together makes a whole.I like this look very much and I think I am going to look for more skinny trees.I want a forest now.

I don't think I have told you that I collect baskets.I have about 40 I think.Some of my favorites are the very small ones,so I used them on one of the trees.All the things on the trees are handmade .
Here are a few of the ornaments I hooked a few years ago and are just now getting finished.Anyone else like that,start something and then put it up for years? This is going to be the year that I go through and finish everything I have started in the past.

I sent a few of these off as gifts this week.I really like the stars and I think I will make some more of them.I am trying to make all my gifts this year.I love it when someone makes something just for me.

Live Deeply,

So good to see you posting again. I have a ltch hook rug I made for my mom, in 2000, that I still have not put the binding on the raw edge. She uses it anyway just like it is! ha ha!
