My Christmas Tree.....

Here are some pics, as promised...




The tree skirt was made my Ray's Grandmother the year we married, so it's now 20 years old. I miss Grandmother very much & am reminded of her each year with our beautiful tree skirt & many of the crocheted ornaments she made for us. She also taught me to crochet & all the crocheted ornaments you see on our tree were made by either her or me.
I think the pics are clickable to make the larger in case you want to see anything close up.
I have many,many more stitched ornaments on stands & on an ornament tree on my table... I'll see if Ray will take more pics later! :-)
Thanks for looking & happy stitching!

Those pictures are fantastic! I really appreciate the story of Ray's grandmother. It is great when we can learn from our elders. Especially since I now qualify as an elder - LOL

Amy: I love your tree, and I'm one that fills the tree full of ornaments, too. My kids complain there is no room left on the tree! Yours is simply beautiful, and it is wonderful to hear about where some of your ornaments have come from. Happy New Year! Nancy
