Christmas Heart

Every year ( for the last 5 years, anyway) I have embroidered a heart for the Christmas tree. After the first few years it sort of became traditional and so added to the long list of things to do for Christmas. Anyway I have finished this year's heart, which I have decorated with a satin stitch star, outlined in gold thread.

Here are all the hearts so far.

They are beginning to swamp the Christmas tree some what so I might have to think of an alternative way of displaying them.

We are all starting to get excited - December next week - the decorations go up and we start getting giddy - what a wonderful time of the year.

I've decided to put Rona (the crocheted jacket) on hold until after Christmas. It's taking longer than I thought it would (only the back done so far) and I'm not even sure I'm going to like it when it's finished - it's looking a bit like a technicolour dream coat.

What I really want to do is make myself something nice to wear on Christmas day - hopefully I'll find time in the next week or so. I intend to get Lauren finished as soon as possible. I'm designing this myself and at the moment I'm struggling to get the width of the sleeves correct. Oh well, I always say I like a challenge, so I shouldn't complain - I'm just impatient to start my Christmas cardi!!


  1. How cute your hearts are. I love them all.
    Best wishes from Germany

  2. Those gorgeous hearts would be peachy-keen as a garland(s) to hang over doorways or on a mantelpiece. Love your work. Your knitting is breath-taking (I'm Sooooo jealous!!!) Happy New Year from Michigan. GT
