Angel Christmas ornament with pants

Don’t you just love Christmas lights? As an apartment dweller, decking the yard with lights isn’t an option, so instead my living room is almost as bright as day in the evening with all the strings of lights. They’re the next best thing to sitting beside a flickering fireplace. Check out all the new growth on my little potted Christmas tree. It’s growing fast!

The angel on the top of the tree was tatted by my great grandmother — the same one who made these framed doilies. She made everyone in the family either a boy or girl angel. My father insisted his angel needed pants, so she created the pattern just for him. Sorry, I don’t have the pattern, and I don’t know how to tat, but maybe someone who does will be inspired to figure one out. Have a very Merry Christmas, everyone!
