The twelve ornaments of Christmas

Well, it isn't an ornament, but it is an important part of the tree. This tree skirt was a gift from my mother. And no ordinary gift, it is one she made herself. I am sure it took her many hours to counter cross stitch, and it brings a smile every year we unpack it. She also counter cross stitched a stocking for my wife. It is nice to have several little reminders of family on Christmas morning.
