Christmas Stitching

I have a cross stitched piece that is dear to me.  This was stitched by my late aunt, who would be 106 if living today!  She's been gone for a number of years and I got this after she passed.  She was a widow with no children, and I got two pictures that she stitched, probably back in the '80s.  I think it's lovely--I have no idea who the chart is by, but I love the colors and I like it on the pale green Aida she chose.

This isn't a great photo, but you get the idea!  She would be so pleased to know that I enjoy it each year!

I'm getting VERY excited, seeing Christmas trees and goodies on your blogs!!  I am ALMOST finished with my decorating!!  I can't believe it's taken me this long, but I'm plodding along and getting it all together!  LOL!!
I put up more than one tree, so it's just taken a bit longer this year with everything else that has been going on! (like school)  But I'm going to post photos soon, so please bear with me a little longer!! Then I'm going to take some ME time and stitch away!!!
Fortunately, I have all my shopping done and wrapped!!!  My Christmas cards are being addressed now--almost done!

Thank you for stopping by and please come back soon!
