Christmas Stitch & Christmas Trees

 
Design - "Falalalala" (kit)
Designer - Lizzie Kate
Fabric - 30 count Northern Cross cream linen 
Fibers - GAST & WDW - 2 strands over 2 threads
Started - 7 December 2014
Completed - 13 December 2014

I really like the greens and reds in this design. A much needed bright design stitched during a gray month.

I thought I'd share some of the trees I decorated this weekend.
This is a display of WillieRaye Studio ornaments. I have a nativity by him too. 

I redid this pair of trees and I am much happier now.
One has light bulb ornaments.

The other has Shiny Bright ornaments.

This is a new themed tree this year.
A Gardening Tree.  Isn't that fitting for me?
I have lots more to show, so stayed tuned.

The trees look awesome as does FaLaLaLaLa! We haven't seen the sun in my area since -- I can't remember when -- but it hasn't been anytime in December!

I love the colors on the Lizzie Kate. I have some Willie Raye snowmen, but I love those ornaments. Can you come decorate my tree?

Oh my gosh, I'd forgotten how much fun it is seeing all your trees and decorating this time of year. Such fun! I love all your trees! Love your stitching finish too!

Oh Beth, I love your gardening tree! It is just delightful! I had to do a search of the Willie Raye Studio ornaments as I am not familiar with them - they are so cute!
Love your stitched piece with the gorgeous bright colours - instant smile!

I love your trees!!! I'm such a Christmas "fan" and these are so fun! The gardening tree is especially cute and perfect for you! Love it!

Carol said...

What a cute finish--I need a bright and cheery one to work on during these dull days, too! We have had only one day of sunshine this entire month--it is downright depressing :(

Love your new gardening tree--how perfect for you, Beth!

Andrea said...

A great finish, love the traditional colours too. Your trees are beauties, especially your new gardening tree, very you!

LOVE that LK finish! Thought I had it but do not... hmmmm... putting it on my wishlist! And I absolutely love ALL of your decorated trees (so far!)... I looked up the ones with the light bulbs/shiny ornaments... they are so unusual. Thanks for sharing!
