The Christmas Garland

I'm finally recovering from the show last week. So much work to get ready and 4 days of fun (1 set-up, 3 show days). So much to think about in terms of - where are my children, and who is watching them?, did I grab enough $$ for change?, did I eat breakfast (I'm hypo-glycemic...get a little loopy if I don't eat!)?, where are my children?, why did I wear these shoes that are killing my feet after 15 minutes? Got to make more crocheted hats....did I bring the yarn?....and did I mention, where are my children? and who is watching them?! (By the way....I have some AWESOME friends, that have been an enormous help to me - I'm so thankful for you all!) Just a little stressful - but that's OK. I met some really fun people and had a fun time too.
So, during my down time at the show (yes, unfortunately, there was down time), I
started crafting in my head this Christmas Garland.
I took an old, stained, holey tablecloth and cut pieces from it, stitched them together, embroidered some cute words, added vintage buttons and trim, and ......Viola! I love it so much!
I would have posted it to Etsy, but, alas, ....it has been purchased and is going to a new home already! To be loved I am sure. I love how this old forgotten tablecloth has found new life and love - to be enjoyed by a new family this holiday season.
