Sweet Chrissie Wall Hangings....

Just a quicky today as the hall is quietly telling me it needs another coat of paint applied to it & the dreaded picture rails are being a bit more vocal telling me they haven't had a coat of paint yet!
So thought I would show you guys what I made on Sunday.... took a break from the painting & made these sweet chrissie wall hangings.... what do you think, will list them tonight...





Little pearl beads have been sewn on to decorate the sweet tree with rhinestones placed as Chrissie baubles....


Rachel Ashwell fabric used for the chrissie stockings, little *jingle bells* ribbon bows & rhinestones have been sewn on....


Ok so a few of you guys have asked for photos of my painting, this was taken yesterday of the hallway, the darker green looks a bit lighter than it actually is. I love the green on the walls but after 10 years of constant washing it has faded & lost its *fresh* look. My Darlin' was a bit upset to see this colour go which surprised me as he has always left the picking of colours to the painter of the house *me*. Anyway its coming along nicely & am hoping to get the walls finished today & some of the picture rails started......

Oh & before I forget our Government in their wisdom have decided this time to give flood relief payments out to the poor souls affected by the floods last week, it made my day....
Wishing you all a great & prosperous day....

Hey Lyn,
I am loving your new wall hangings, you are a very clever chickie!
I's glad that the Goverment have finally decided to give you some sort of compensation...gosh we pay taxes so why shouldn't you get something.
Good luck with the hallway painting, it will look even more fabulous when you are finished weaving your magic.
