1978 Sunset Crewel Christmas Tree

After my grandfather passed away in 1977, my grandma said she was not going to put up a Christmas tree. My mom didn’t like that idea so she bought this crewel embroidery Christmas tree pattern and made it for her house.

When my grandma passed away, my mom brought the framed piece back to her house and hangs it up each Christmas. I’ve always loved this picture because it is so colorful and happy.

Recently, she was looking online and saw the kit for sale for $149! There is a coordinating kit that is a wreath for $154. Looking on eBay the prices are about the same.

I realize these kits are about 35 years old, but holy needles!

    Holy mackeral! That’s a lot of dollars. I love the idea of having the needlework tree that can be passed down. Might have to make one for my house.
