It's Christmas at my house

Made it back from the conference and was thrown back into the last week of classes and trying to get decorations put up and shopping done and cleaning underway.  So haven't been sitting at my rug stand hooking too much, although I have hauled out the Palette Constellation rug and have worked on it a bit.  I need to get it done so I can move on to other projects in the wings.

My in-laws arrive this afternoon for the holidays and my sister and her family are coming down next weekend to stay through Christmas.  Tiffany has been working on a large portrait of one of her daughters, using her own palette wools she created.  So I am very excited to see the finished piece.

Christmas decorations are finished here.  Here are pictures of three of my favorite things.  St. Nicholas has taken over the shadow box above mantel.  I painted it white to show off against my eggplant wall.  Father Christmas stands tall in a rug hooking box on a table.  And of course my sugar plum fairy tree in front of my french door in the living room.

I will try to get back to posting more regularly, but it may not be until after the holidays.  A blessed Christmas and Hanukkah to you and yours!
