Christmas Cheer

I dread pulling out all my Christmas decorations - it always seems like such a daunting task to get them all out and placed just right.  But, after it's done I love to sit back and look at all the things we have been collecting for the last 30 years.  I love all the memories that our Christmas decorations bring back - I could sit for hours looking at our tree decorations and attaching a story to almost every ornament.  Here's a photo of one of my all time favorite Christmas decorations.  I made this toy block tree about 15 years ago.  It has made it through three moves and while it is a little worse for wear, the memories are still going strong.
All of our names are on here somewhere, along with the dog and a few other Christmas words!
Since the Worleybird Studio has been turned into a wrap station these days, I've been forced to take a creating break.  But don't worry, I'll be back to it in January and hope to have some fun new things to share!

Merry Christmas!!

On the Needles . . .

My knitting has taken a back seat lately to my digi designs.  So, now that Christmas is upon us and I can put it off no longer, I am a knitting machine!  Here's a sneak peak of what is on the needles today - these are going to felt up into some knitted lovelies . . . but I can't show the finished product just yet.  I'm hoping my family members will be surprised!  I'll post another photo of these later in the month once my giftees have their presents in hand!

Mmmmmmm . . . Rowan Big Wool, LOVE it!
