Stitching, Christmas, and everyday life

I'm Christmas 2016 has come and gone!  Blogging everyday in December has come and gone, and didn't happen here on my blog.  Everyday life was happening in December, and I was enjoying the season.   I made these.

A Sports Fan "Aprons"

I embroidered 6 of these for my friend Terri over at she made pillows for a friend out of her mothers wedding dress.  I embroidered the words with 60 weight thread in champagne color (tone on tone), they turned out nice, I think.

I embroidered on these two store bought stockings.  I had to embroider the names on organza ribbon and then stitched the organza onto the stockings.  I wasn't unstitching store bought stockings that wouldn't fit in the embroidery hoop.  Maybe next year I can make them stockings, though I kinda like these just the way they are.

We bought our Christmas Tree the weekend before Christmas.  It was raining, so we set the tree up in the tree stand, and left it out in the garage to dry.  And then I got a cold/flu bug the Tuesday/Wednesday before Christmas.  Decorating the tree took all day, but finally I finished.  Happy it was finished, couldn't wait...
