The Night Before Christmas Embroidery

Well, the plan was to make a collection of these hoops to hang as Christmas decorations, each highlighting a portion of the ever popular "'Twas the Night Before Christmas" poem.  Last year I made the Not a creature was stirring mouse for Gwenny Penny's Haul Out the Holly.  This year I completed the Hung by the chimney with care stockings.  I seem to be averaging one per year...check back in a decade or so if you want to see the completed set.

The mouse hoop, by the way, is a tutorial complete with a template!  See the little gray mouse down there?  I made him for a giveaway a long, long time ago and he was the inspiration for my overly ambitious let's-make-a-set idea. 

I also got a little sidetracked and made a hoop for one of my favorite Christmas carols.

I know what you're thinking.  "Why can't the little pink bird just fly up to the top of the tree to hang the shining star upon the highest bough?"  Because that wouldn't look as cute embroidered and framed, now would it?
