The Eleventh Day of Christmas
A traditional Christmas bell, with snowflakes and beads. The pattern is “Silver Bells” by Amanda Carestio, which features buttons instead of embroidery. I’m not good at picking out buttons, so I did something different.
“Silver Bells” sounds so pretty that I had to look up the song. Unfortunately the lyrics are unremarkable:
Silver bells, silver bells,
It’s Christmas time in the city
Ring-a-ling, hear them sing
Soon it will be Christmas day.
I was hoping for some onomatopoetic play on the “s” sound and short vowels in “silver” and “bells.” “Sing” is nice, but “ring-a-ling” doesn’t cut it for me. Oh well.
And maybe I’ll stuff the next one with little jingly bells.
