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.
