    I have a Christmas Tree quilt that has to be hung up on the wall.

    My Christmas decor would be incomplete without a balsam centerpiece made by me from our very own tree.

    Our first christmas living together we bought a Playmobil nativity, so every year we put up all our christmas decor around this.

    I have a Snowball candy bowl that I would be shot if I didn’t put out each year. I have had almost 30 years. My youngest daughter would be heart broken I think if she came for Christmas and the snowball was not filled with her favorite chewy peppermint candies. Ya know the ones with the Christmas tree in the center.

    I’d have to say the tree is the key to my Christmas decorations. I can leave everything else out, and the tree makes it feel complete.

    My kids are in their 20’s and 30’s and if I didn’t leave out the Cookies for Santa cup and plate they wouldn’t believe it was Christmas!!

    We have a quilted tree skirt that I finished a few years ago. It adds the perfect touch to the tree.

    The tree makes our Christmas complete! And each year, we get bigger and bigger trees. Last year the angel’s head touched the peak in our cathedral ceiling!

    I have these ceramic candle holders that spell out NOEL. They were my mom’s and every time I place them out for Christmas it feels like she’s there celebrating with us!

    We have a Christmas stocking on the mantel for every member of our family, including Coco Chanel, our cocker spaniel. Even though some of my kids are grown, they all look for their Christmas Stockings to be filled! And then mailed out after the Holidays. When we had a house full of young kids, they could open their stockings as soon as they were up to give Mom and Dad a few more minutes of sleep.

    I would say the angel on the top of the tree – we put her on last and then everything feels right!

    The Christmas season starts with the hanging of my son’s advent calendar that I made for him when he was little. We know all the ornaments by heart. On Christmas Eve, the ornament is always Santa in his sleigh with Rudolph.

    The tree is the icing on the cake for us. Whether it’s decorated with just Disney ornaments or with ornaments collected over the years, the kids always look to see where their favorite ornament is hung. The book has some wonderful projects. A wonderful addition to anyone’s library. Thank you for the giveaway.

    We put all our Christmas/winter-themed quilts on all our beds and sitting areas. They come out after Thanksgiving and we use them until mid-January. My favorite time of year!

    The most important decoration in my house is the Merry, Merry Snowmen quilt that I hang by the dining room table. Thanks for the chance to win this book.

    Really like the “Tree Pillow” project from this book. We don’t have one particular piece, but enjoy all the pieces we have added over the years. Thanks.

    We deck the heck out of the halls inside our home, but for me we’re not Christmas ready until the wreaths are hung on our double front doors. Last year, I made new glittered tulle wreaths …
    Would dearly love to have this holiday patchwork book!

    I have a large wall quilt that has 16 different Christmas blocks, both pieced and applique, that four of my best friends made for me. Christmas starts for me when I hang up that very special quilt – on December 1.

    I have a vintage Avon advent calendar from the 70’s, every day you move the little mouse to a different pocket. It just doesn’t feel like Christmas until that gets hung on the wall and the countdown begins!

    It just wouldn’t be Christmas without hanging our 17 stockings :)

    The tree! Hanging all the ornaments that have been collected since ’75, ( i really need 3 trees!), just makes it Christmas and the creche that the kids moce all the pieces around on!

    I have a homemade angel whose body consists of pink feathers. Pink was my favorite color when I was in elementary school. That angel has graced tree tops, Nativity sets and other places for over 50 years. She still appears every Christmas.

    I have a wallhanging I made when my children were small. It comes out every year!

  33. Pauline July 9, 2014 at 12:10 pm - Reply

    I make quilts, wall hangings and tablerunners that I enjoy, but my special Christmas contribution that makes me feel that my Christmas is complete is the personalized ornaments that I make for my whole family. They are usually made of felt and I base the ornaments on a special event for that person that year. There is not always a really special event and so I use ideas from that persons life of things that they love – I use novelty buttons (tons of those about for all kinds of subjects from toys to the EIffel Tower), I embroider dates, names, words describing characteristics or hobbies etc. I really really enjoy making them and I have to start early because they are highly embellished with beads and sequins too. They make me happy.

    I’ve been working on making Christmas ornaments every year, so now I love to bring out our felt ornaments and knitted stockings for the kids! :)

    The tree ornaments are always the finishing touch to our Christmas decor. We have quite an eclectic grouping. Everything from a popsicle stick snowman face that my son made a few years ago to a felt fish that I made way back in 1972!

    Hello! I used to have a snowman family that I loved! We used it every year for at least 20 years – unfortunately our garage caught on fire right after Christmas last year and EVERYTHING burned! So sad, so we will be starting over this year! Bad that we lost so much, but good that we are able to start over.

    I guess it might sound corny, but once my children’s ornaments from the year they were born and the ornament my husband and I got the year we were married all hung onto our tree I feel better and ready for the holiday season. It’s just not Christmas without those being hung on our tree.

    I’ve just started to get into Christmas decorations (beyond a little tree and a few ornaments). I worked on crocheted snowflakes last year; my hope was to get enough to make a garland but it didn’t happen – maybe this year! :) I’ve yet to make stockings; I looked at the pictures for this and the white one is rather pretty.

    My Christmas tree with it’s multi-generational ornaments. When I gently unwrap each ornament it is like a trip down memory lane complete with smiles, tears, and laughs as I remember the giver of each special one.

    We rushed to ND from our home 3 years ago when we found out our granddaughter had been placein foster care. When Christmas rolled around and I didn’t have the beloved nativity I had collected and built over 50 years, my husband and I decided that we would start another one that our granddaughter could keep and build on for her family when she grew up. Three years later she is still with us, we are still in ND and I we are deciding which piece to add this year.

    My birthday is in December. When my children were small, my husband would take them to pick out a piece to add to our Nativity scene. They are adults now and our Nativity scene is huge. They still love to look at the figures and remember which ones they picked out and why they chose them.

    We have been using the same Christmas tree decorations as long as I remember. My mom tried to get a “grown up” set once, but we ended up not liking it and she took it back to the store…or something with it. A lot of them were handmade by me and my sister. They are even now more special since, my sister passed about 4 years ago at 29 yo.

    Christmas in Australia is midsummer. I try to avoid decorations with snow on them cause it just isn’t our Christmas but they are everywhere. I have a Willow Nativity scene that I love to put out. Because the story of the birth of Christ is central to our Christmas I try to use as many decorations whose roots are in the Christian tradition as I can
