A few Christmas finishes

"Merry Mistletoe"
I hope that each of you had a lovely Christmas with family and friends!
All the long preparations and the actual days go by so quickly.
As always, I have so many topics that I would like to post about, but just not enough time...
For now, I just wanted to share two final Christmas finishes.
I completed "Merry Mistletoe" on Christmas Day night after all of our guests had left (although I had not yet finished the clean up...) It's a small candle mat that I made for a small end table in our family room.

"Poinsettia Runner" by LakeView Primitives

I finished this late on 12/23, so I was able to enjoy it on the kitchen table for Christmas Eve and Day.

I just love the wool colors and textures. I was really enjoying natural decorations for Christmas this year - lots of poinsettias in different colors, mistletoe, holly and evergreen branches too. I'm thinking that I might leave them out into January...

Blessings, Patti

Truly beautiful finishes Patti - that Merry Mistletoe is absolutely adorable...Glad you got them stitched up in time to enjoy for the season. I didn't get a single holiday anything stitched or hooked this year. Boo Hoo! Wishing you a wonderful new year filled with hope and promise....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

Two gorgeous finishes. I especially love the poinsettia runner and how the petals extend past the borders. Great colors.
