Thanks for visiting and joining in Jo's Advent Calendar Blog Hop this year! I've been thinking about what I want to post all month since I posted an Xmas one for Jo's Birthday Blog Hop it was tough to find something I hadn't already posted about on my blog.
I included this in a multiple photo top ten post about 18 months ago, so hopefully it will seem newish to most of you!
Angelic Melody - completed in 2012:
This was one of the largest finishes I'd had at the time. It's 11x15 and was gifted to my MIL. The metallics weren't too bad to deal with, and neither was the fabric too stiff even though this is a Dimensions kit. I was really happy to have completed it. My cording could use work, but hey, first time for everything!
And Jo's question this year is: Decorations - do you have a favourite decoration you must have on display every year, maybe an heirloom, one the children made or something with a special story behind it?
The only decoration I have that is always out is a stocking knitted by my Grandma. She made one for each grandchild way back while I was in undergrad and each one has a different design. Then she knitted one for our significant others, and for our children. She actually has knit 2 for DD because she forgot she had made one. I think that's about 17 total? They all get hung up when the Xmas decorations go up, then filled on Xmas Eve. :)
Happy Holidays everyone!
