This year I have been procrastinating about putting up our Christmas tree. I just haven't been able to get in the right frame of mind to enjoy this special holiday. As I was decorating I was able to get into the spirit a little. Each of the ornaments on this tree have either been given to my children or have been made by them.
I knitted each of these stockings for my kids when they were small. The pattern was in an old McCall's holiday magazine that I can no longer find. I did realize that I should make a runner for the mantle before next year.
This is the oldest ornament on the tree. It was given to my oldest boy for his first Christmas by his grandmother.

Last night was the 2nd sew-in for December and I stayed awake for this one! I haven't made many things for Christmas this year so I worked on a UFO that I started in September 2008 for my youngest son's 18th birthday the following February. Two years later I am still working on the hand quilting and am a little over half way finished. It would be nice to finish it and cross it off my list of UFOs.
