Firstly I would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas!!!!
I've been full of festive busy so haven't had chance to update, so I have plenty to share stitchy wise too.
We have been getting into the spirit of the season. Especially yesterday we saw Santa's reindeer in the park and a Nativity carol service with a real donkey at a local church.
The boys both loved seeing the animals!
I received my order from Willow Fabrics for which I had a voucher from having my comment published in Cross stitch collection magazine.
This means I now have the threads I needed for a couple of projects that were on hold for the supplies.
So here is the Noel sachet finished:
Love the rich colours. I just need to find a minute to back it and stuff it. Then it can go with the Christmas Angel I had made.
I have finally put the finishings to the Madonna and Child.
They are now displayed together for the first time. I think they will become a treasured part of our decorations for years to come.
I've done quite a bit of Christmas crafting with the my boys.
Nanna and Grandpa visited and left a gingerbread house kit, which the boys loved making up.
Warning: may contain pre licked sweets lol
Here it is before:
I finished this little project I have been working on.
I charted this myself. I saw the quote on a plaque in a card shop a while ago and loved it, totally sums my house up. While I was charting it my son lined his foot up with the footprint...says it all really. I'm so pleased with how it has turned out.
Peace and Goodwill to everyone!
