Well, it's a good winter white morning. OK, it's Michigan and snowing so the best part of this is that I can sit back and do some more x-stitching. OH, I know that I could clean house, do laundry and start that spring cleaning issue thing in my kitchen cupboards but----it's snowing and cold outside so can't work. Listen-my story - going to stick to it.
In one of my idea-flashes (gotta stop drinking first thing in the morning) I decided to make myself a "holiday tree". I found the most darling dowel tree and decided to make a set of Halloween ornaments. Sounded good...than said to me....can't do one for yourself without doing one for the daughter-person and the granddaughter (didn't even factor in the grand-pup). So ordered two dowel trees. Off of stitch..got the Halloween ornaments done, started (and finished) the thanksgiving and x-mas ornaments. Very busy patting me on the back when I went into a store (this in December!!!) and saw the valentine's going up--OK that was not going to happen this year BUT I now have the Easter ones done. Have to make them into hangers and ship them to daughter and little-bit. The daughter-person has come up with ALL sorts of ideas for holidays. I can live with valentine day, birthday, even a "summer-fall-spring" thing but she is making up holidays as she goes along (of course, to her credit she does say "no real pressure, MOM--when will you be mailing them" ) :)
Had planned to put the pics at the end of this but since I figured this out all by MYSELF without a call to the daughter (ok-so it's 4am in her world -she should be awake when I need her) this is as good as it "gits"
Off to stitch----
So thought I would share my "trees" with you. They were a joy to make and my "idea-flash" is to add a few each year so that as little-bit gets older she can pick out the ones to display on the tree each holiday. NOW--if there is justice in the world--SHE will want them all on the tree and the daughter-person can try to deal with THAT. That accorn/falling thing. tehe tehe.
