It's beginning to look like........

So, with everyone else in Blogland posting pictures
of Christmas decorations, I decided I need to get on the stick. Here you can see the first of the village pieces finding their places in front of the almost quilt. I am really loving how it looks.

The carolers in this picture were made by my parents several years ago: the outfits were knit by my mother.

Here is some more of the village. Please note the clean fireplace. I played Cinderella and cleaned it: the logs weren't getting any air underneath because of all the ashes. The two stockings were machine knit by me many years ago. That year I knit 16 stockings for family members: each one was unique. That was truly a Labor of love.

The last part of the village is here. We put a trunk (lighthouse and airport) and the coffee table (ice skating rink, tree sales shack, and McDonalds) together to form a bi-level plane.
There are still some decorations that need to be put up including the tree and a train. But this got done between sewing projects.
One more note: Weight Watcher's weigh in today = 2# loss. Daughter had a 3# loss. Not bad following a Thanksgiving weekend, huh?
