    I'm usually known as the christmas grinch at my house because I'm not the biggest fan of christmas.
    But this year I must of had to much time on my hands so I made this including the stockings hanging off it.
    The tree ornaments are done with mettalic threads - they look good but I'm not in a hurry to use them again.
    Now onto finishing a couple ufo's.....

    Thankyou everyone for your sweet replies.

    Marsye - I feel more relaxed and happier about christmas this year maybe because I know Craig will be home with us this year. (He's had to work for the past few years)He is a shift worker, he either goes to work at 5am & returns at 7pm or he leaves at 5pm and doesn't arrive home until 7am & if he has to sleep in between we only see him for 1hour each in the morning & afternoon. So it'll be good!!

    Fonts -
    www.grandslamdesigns.com

    Just put in santa in the search tool bar(make sure you are searching under fonts in the search field) and put in red if you want the font without santa.

    I'm sorry I was going to reply to you lastnight but the computer decided it was going to have connection problems.

    Lovely! I don't decorate a tree as I go away for the holiday, but I have a few things I put around, especially things I can hang. Your tree is a great idea.

    LOL By the names on your stockings, someone loves christmas. It really adds to the overall walling and stocking display. This was a darling idea, really!
