Christmas is coming!

Each year since 2000 I have made individual Christmas tree 
decorations for my close family! Each decoration has the persons
name and the year on it.
Now my three sons are adults the number of decorations to make 
now includes  grandchildren! Consequently the number to be made
 has increased over the years! When grandchildren arrived I told 
my sons they wouldn't get any more individual decorations.. there
 were complaints and we compromised! 
This year I need to make 11. Each year the decoration design is a 
closely guarded secret, however this year my grand daughter has 
requested a bell! I don't think that she has told anybody!!

I do need to start early in the year to get them completed in time.
here are close ups of some of the bobbin lace decorations .
