Christmas Magic 2011

This is my mantle for Christmas 2011. I knitted the 9 doilies hanging off the edge, I also made all the stockings. The first 3 are counted cross-stitch and I won blue ribbons in the fair for 3 years for their entry. I added the garland this year for more color but they did not have dark red, it still loos good! Hope everyone has a safe and Merry

Christmas and a Happy New Year!


  1. Congrats on the blue ribbons. I have never done counted cross stitch. Too tiny for my eyes! Your mantle looks nice. I don't have a fireplace but am in the midst of decorating too. It is a job I like less and less every year. I only do it because the grandkids will be coming during the holidays.

  2. Wonderfully done! wow on the blue ribbons for the counted cross stitch. My mom used to do a lot of it when she was still alive. I've done about two that I actually finished and hung up! Love the doilies!
