I will have two Christmas trees this year. I finished putting up the first one today in the diningroom. It is a Snoopy and the Peanuts Gang Tree. These are ornaments I collected since I was a kid. I love taking them out and putting them on the tree. Snoopy is of course so cool.

framed the piece.

Close up of Lavender and lace ornament. See below.
I start this project in 2000 - yes 2000 - I could not bring myself to finish the
project because it reminded of that time period in my life- so I took what I
started and made it into a beautiful ornament - very victorian. Design by
Lavender and Lace.

Monopoly completed ---:) I can't wait to have it framed for my son for christmas
My first quilt card- the person I made it for actually returned it to me.
I sent it as a piece offering - I guess they didn't consider the time and
effort it takes to make a handmade item - we all know hand made
items are made with love. you can't please everyone.

reversable ornament- I bought fabric for the back.

Precious moments baby ornament.
These are a couple of Jar mugs that I made as gifts for two co-workers who
went to another department. These make great gifts because the
containers can be used again to drink of store items.
