under the tree

The tree skirt is done just in time to put under our first Christmas tree.

And I think I might have seen ‘someone’ peeking from behind the tree while we were finishing the decorating…

This is last year’s picture. Even though we didn’t put a tree then, we remembered to leave a warm glass of milk and plate full of cookies on the window sill. Santa seemed to have enjoyed few quiet moments in-between climbing down the chimneys.

Some of the ornaments on the tree are vintage finds and other trinkets are from our travels in India. We had a good time unwrapping each one and reminiscing their whereabouts.

This sweet angel is a very dear present from Terri.

Now for the actual facts and figures, Santa is from a vintage kit that I got on ebay two years ago. Later I tried to locate Mrs.Claus as well but with not much luck.

~The pattern for the tree skirt is in ‘Quilts and More’ winter 2007 issue.
~The border fabric is from Wash tub’s Santa Claus Lane collection. And the fabric sprawled with toys is Nutcracker sweet. It is on sale at equilter now in soft blue.
