You may not know it to read my blog but I am a rather reclusive soul. There are many reasons for this but it has not always been so. Even just a few years ago I was quite the social butterfly & very involved in various things in the towns in which we lived. This was probably never more so than when we lived in Bismarck, North Dakota. It was a very social, very involved, & very productive time of my life. One particular year in Bismarck I decided that my husband & I needed new Christmas stockings & that we also needed some Christmas wallhangings to enhance our holiday decor. I then went to work.
The following 3 photos show a few of the wallhangings I made that year. I actually made extras of these which I sold at Christmas open houses. My friend Mary, who taught me how to do folk art painting & bobbin lacemaking, always held 3 Christmas open house craft shows in her home each year. There were also years that we would participate in craft shows in our town & the neighboring one. I really miss those times! I apologize for the rather poor quality of these photos. I took them a year ago with an old camera which did not take the best of pictures. Unfortunately I don't remember the pattern designer.
