An interruption

Today at persistent prompting from the DBEM I put up my Christmas tree.   I always begrudge the amount of time it takes but I love the finished product!   I have at least a dozen angels of varying types hanging on it but the angel and tree I love the best are these.   And they are much easier to put up!
Another interruption from the DBEM was this.   Can you see what is going to happen?
Yes!   I am to sew in all the ends and sew up the garments, iron them and then put on the buttons.   The DBEM does the knitting but finishing is beyond her now so I have these to complete.   This will interrupt my stitching schedule in a major way but what can one do??   The DBEM suggested I took them away on holiday at Christmas but I can't face that so will try and get them all done well before that.   Do you think I could manage to complete one tonight while watching Midsomer Murders?   I'm going to try.

  1. I love your alternative embroidered Christmas decorations, so pretty. I love to knit but never get too excited about the sewing up part......best of luck, hope you get it all done before your Christmas holiday.

  2. The hardanger Christmas tree is lovely. I'm not very keen on finishing my knitting either (or my stitching or ...)

  3. The little tree is amazing. And look at how wonderful they will all look once they are finished. Midsummer murders will be wonderful to listen to as you sew in all the ends..something that I always hate doing myself!

  4. Our tree went up yesterday - like you I enjoy the end result but not the task. Your mum's knitting never fails to impress me but I do not envy you the task of all that sewing.

  5. That's you newly-finished angel, isn't it? She's beautiful, as is that tree!

  6. The tree and angel look lovely together, the perfect pair. That's a lot of finishing too! Good luck with it.
