A Prairie Schooler Christmas

when I found this frame, I knew exactly what pattern that I wanted to stitch for it!

The Prairie Schooler #175 Santa's Night
Lucky for me, the ornament would fit perfectly,
so I stitched it right away.

The frame is battery operated and I just love the soft lights!

I think that this frame was made for this pattern!
I haven't packed it away yet and am going to have a hard time doing so...

Since I am sharing my latest Prairie Schooler Christmas finish, I thought it would be fun to share some vintage finishes that I photographed before packing away for another year...

I stitched this over one on black 22 count back in the day.
Still a favorite :)
It's framed as a shadow box with glass and hard to hide the glare of the glass.

This quilt was a gift from my Mom

she personalized it

and signed and dated it

I love the antique mother of pearl buttons in the corners.
Amazingly she made a second one for my sister that year!
My sister and I were both expecting that Christmas and our sons were born three weeks apart a few months later... Such wonderful memories!

Mom also made these for my sons one Christmas when they were little.
Joe loved trains and Alex loved fire trucks - so they were perfect!

Then a few years later Mom made my sister and I matching gifts again!

again signed

and dated!
Aren't they amazing?!
I am so lucky to have such an amazing Mom!
Love you Mom!

I have one more Christmas finish to share in my next post...

Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, 
praising God and saying,
 “Glory to God in the highest heaven,
    and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”
~Luke 2:13-14

Blessings, Patti

Such wonderful stitching! Such lovely gifts from your mother! My grandmother did needlepoint. I have lovely pieces that she did for the holidays. I was wondering, what is the name of the angel pattern? It is so wonderful! Thanks!

I've never seen such a frame!! What a fabulous display.

All are amazing! My favorites stylistically are your framed angel finish and your mom's quilt-hangings; I think the nutcracker slightly more (I love them!) really fun stories and gorgeous. I probably would not put the new illuminated box Santa away until spring!!!
