. This is the family room with our new Christmas tree. Much smaller and streamlined. I love it. I have a collection Of Byers Choice Carolers. I have decorated both of my mantles with them and afew other places around the house. Sorry that I left the TV on, I just noticed it.
A little closer shot of the tree. I don't have that many stitched ornaments on it. Next year I have a pencil type tree that will hold the stitched ornaments.
I read on Donna's blog (Needleworker not in paradise) that Ginny Thompson passed away. I had the honor of meeting her and her husband, Ken on 3 occasions in the 80's. . They held a wonderful business seminar in Pawley's Island. I learned alot and they gave me the know how and the courage to open my first store. I will always be grateful to them both. They also had retreats that I attended. Ken is the man that taught me how to stitch on linen. He was a wonderful teacher. The world of cross stitch will miss them both. Until next time.... Happy Stitching. Deborah
