'Twas the Night Before Christmas

...and all through the house
Not a creature was stirring
Not even a....

BANG went the Christmas tree!

Yep, that's my poor tree, fallen over onto its side on Christmas Eve. Someone (the male in the household) left off one tiny little part on the base of the tree when it was first put up. I didn't notice until after getting all of the lights on and made the not-so-good decision to leave it alone. I thought that surely the tree would be fine. I thought wrong. And the whole thing went down on Christmas Eve. I was in the middle of frantic holiday baking when it happened, and it was the last thing I had time to deal with. But there it was.

Fortunately, only a few glass balls shattered. None of the important ones were damaged. And now, I have a perfect excuse for purchasing a new pre-lit tree.

In stitching news, I've concentrated mostly on Snow Wonderful. It's coming along nicely, and I'm hoping to finish it in January. Today I'll be working on Santa's Magic, though I don't expect to see much progress.

Oh no, your poor tree! Looks like someone is getting a laugh out of it LOL! And like you say, it was meant for a reason ... time to go shopping ;)

Oh my!! I have only had that happen once in my lifetime...and that was when hubby and I first got married and had our first Xmas tree...I guess neither of us knew what we were doing at that time-we were so young.. ( but the trip through the woods to find the perfect tree was fun!)and it went Kaplooey a couple of times that Christmas...WE took lessons from that tree and HUBBY has learned to keep the tree/s upright since...ROFL!

Your Snow Wonderful is looking great :)
