I live with three men folk, my DH and two sons (30 & 28), who aren't exactly enthusiastic about the festive season so I have had to do a bit of nagging to get them to go up into the loft to fetch the Christmas tree and decs down. Finally my nagging paid off and I am able to start making the house look as if Christmas is coming.
I love reacquainting myself each year with my Christmas tablecloth and stitched tree ornaments that I have made over many years. Looking at them again has made me want to start stitching again, crochet has taken over my life lately with only one new ornament made this year but I think I might be inspired to get out my needle and thread over the Christmas period and make some more!
I am still looking for something to put on the top of my tree, for years I have had a raffia angel which is a bit worse for wear now and I would like something different this year but so far haven't seen anything I like. At least I now have the tree up, I am sure if the men folk had their way it wouldn't go up until Christmas Eve (if at all)!!!
