Christmas comes but once a year...but it starts in July!

Christmas can start in July...or August...maybe even September. I started this little Christmas wall hanging a couple of Julys ago. Oh, it wasn't difficult at all, I guess I was thinking there was plenty of time to finish it before Christmas that year.....and....well, you know how things get lost. While doing my Spring cleaning this July, I found it and finished it July 31, 2010! It's officially Christmas in July at the Mason house!

It's an Art to Heart design by Nancy Halvorsen. This pattern is from her Star of Wonder book. It's jam packed with twenty-six wonderful Christmas designs. And, I couldn't resist ordering the speciality hand dyed buttons from Just Another Button Company and the stained dowel, hand crafted wire hanger from Ackfeld Mfg.

Merry Christmas.....Marty

P.S. - Have I told you lately to click each picture for best viewing results!
P.S. - I took "Homespun" off the wall to get pictures of the Christmas wall hanging.
