Stockings are Hung (Almost)

So as Santa gets everyone's gifts in the right spot, I have over the years made all the immediate family members their own stocking with their names embroidered on them. As we now have two new members in our Clan, 2 new stockings were in order....all done!
I have one very important job left to do and that is to add these two little treasures to our family quilt.
There names will be embroidered in a heart and appliqued to the quilt. I am all set to go. I adore this design by Christine Book and it is one of my most favourite Christmas quilts.
Want to see a little more of my decorating?
Well I had to of course have a "Frosty corner".
and a new and old Frosty Favourite. The very cute wall hanging was a gift from my lovely friend Cheryl and the other fellow is one I designed many moons ago called "Walter" and seems to be a fav with a lot of you too.
Another favourite that has to go up every year now is a darling stocking with a Frosty featured by lovely friend Melody. I just love it! It is also BIG! So it fits lots of goodies in it when I am on the "nice" list! The back is gorgeous too.
Now this gorgeous fellow was a gift for my 60th Birthday from my best friend Ann...
and I have to say he has settled right in with all the other Heartwood Creek Santas!
As I am sure you are aware by now I am a very sentimental old girl. Aren't you glad I didn't get ALL the decorations out! LOL!

Before I go I want to wish my lovely Daughter-in-Law a very Happy Birthday and big hugs on your special day. Hope My Son spoils you!!!

Have a lovely weekend everyone.
