Christmas Decoration

When my first grand daughter was born I decided to give her a tree decoration for every year of her life up until she was 18 because I then reckoned she would have a goodly number to start off her own tree when she had one.

I now have a new grand daughter and have bought her a "Baby's first Christmas", just like the first grandchild.  From next year I shall continue what has now come a tradition and will need two decorations each year.

Last year I cross-stitched a little tree decoration and this year decided to do another one.

I have entered this in the following challenges:

Top Tip Tuesday:  A gift
Just Some Lines: Hand Made Gift
2 Sisters Challenge: Christmas
By the Cute and Girly:  Let it Snow
Craft Your Days Away:  Snowmen
Cupcake Craftroom:  Christmas Traditions
