Finishes and Christmas

Good morning all !

The rain has stopped momentarily and we have a bright chilly frosty morning but I’m sure the rain will return soon lol.

Last week I put up the Christmas decorations and made mince pies and its all very festive around here now. The advent calendars are out and we are counting down each morning lol.

Here are some of the decorations…
My tree is decorated each year with pine cones and red themed decorations…well red is my favourite colour lol

This is the children’s tree that they decorate each year in the kitchen, they love tinsel lol

And cribs I have nativity sets everywhere lol, here are just a few of my favourite.

The ornament I finished last week I made up with another I finished off over the weekend. This leaves me on my last ornament for the season as a gift. With all I’ve made I forgot to make one for myself lol…on the plus side I’ve an ornament for each gift package I want to give.

This is the little start I made on the last one so I’m hoping for this to be stitched and finished off as I then have to move onto the three younger children’s Christmas presents which I’m stitching…
This last one is LHN’s Frosty Flakes

Welcome to all new followers I hope you enjoy reading and looking round. Thank you for all the lovely comments I did enjoy reading them very much last week.

Happy stitching,

    It all sounds so much fun. Very cute ornaments. Do you use a special felt cutter to get the finish?

    How nice you are all christmassy in your house, I add a bit more each day and still haven't finished. I was fairly restrained this year and let the kids decorate the tree, I have been known to reorganise it afterwards, but no, not this year! I lov the things you've been stitching, especially the snowflakes on the last one, will they remain unstitched or will they be filled in? Does that make sense?Well, must away……have a lovely week!

    Your house looks all ready for the season! Love the finishes! I just did Frosty Flakes myself! I finally found some rotary cutters with a wave blade I need to try out on the felt.
