Christmas Eve Day ~


I spent most of yesterday working on this ~
the model for the next
Little Stitches Handwork Club {LSHC} project.

can you guess what it will be?


and in-between pulling thread through linen and making hundreds of tiny x's,
I did a little more decorating of the farmhouse….

nothing fancy, 
a few chosen items in our collection and
 using some of the fresh greens 
cut from our little tree in the keeping room ~
and simply tucked here & there. 


little twin trees in a painted basket



greens on the mantelpiece 


my rabbits & hares keep us company all year through

antique peanut butter pails & fresh greens


dining room



early white tin sieve filled with dried gourds and a naturally shed antler

…and to all a Good Night.


Hoping your Christmas Eve will be one 
~ filled with faith, family & friends.
