At 12th December 2013 I created my first two lacetrees and to be honest – I love the result!
Santa Claus even came along to say hello and help a bit, just figure! I got really cold hands but had some friends to help and after 2 days working at the trees, I was finished and ever since, passersby admire the result.
I took many doilies, most of them bought at ebay and made in various techniques (most of them crochet, some knitted, some even made in bobbin lace) and sewed them together to form a perfect fitting lace coat for two trees at one of Santa Claus hometowns – at Himmelpfort (= Door to Heaven) in Northern Brandenburg, the State surrounding the City of Berlin in Germany.

Some papers reported about my lacetrees, of course the local press but also media from Japan to Brasilia.
These are some of the reports, I found:
- Daily Times
- Märkische Allgemeine Zeitung
- AFP-BB News (japanese), with some more pics, here with me on the ladder, here with help of Santa Claus
- Freie Presse
- jk-Unterwegs (Blog) – she put some really beautiful Pics at Flickr
- Planeta Bizarre (seems to be a brazilian Newsseite)
