oh christmas tree

I know some people are great fans of Christmas, but that unfortunately is not me. Although, one thing I do like is putting up the Christmas tree, and I confess I do have two of them. I love getting the boxes out of the glory hole and unwrapping all the tree ornaments that haven't seen the light of day since Christmas last year.

I have some ornaments made by my son at playgroup and primary school. I know they've seen better days, but all too precious to throw out....

Then there are decorations made by friends, which are also much loved. I received a beautiful and expertly made decoration from my friend Anne this year. It will take pride of place on one of my trees. She also sent me the link for a video tutorial on how to make this Folded Fabric Ornament, for more details click here.

Then there are the tree ornaments made by myself. I do try to make something new every year, This year I dived into my stash for different coloured red double knit yarn and knitted up some hearts from my "Tiny Teddy Bear" pattern. For more details click here

 I embellished them with beads, sequins and ribbon...

Now all set to hang on my tree....

Have a great Christmas everyone, and best wishes for the New Year.
Till next time, Ali.
