Hello my friends.
December is here,
the weeks will fly till Christmas Day.
I  have sent my `Angel Swap` .

They are well on threir way and should be there soon.

This came to me yesterday. Today is the first chance to blog of this parcels arrival.

Look at these lovely gifts yet to be opened!

I noticed my SSCS gift for my partner has arrived. I stitched this little mouse for her.

It`s from ` Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornaments 2012` issue.
By ` `Twisted Oaks` `The little Mouse`.
 I used suggest linen but changed my threads to Cottage Garden `Bush Christmas` 505 for the flowers,  flower thread 3347 for vine,black beads for eyes.
 I added three threads of  DMC 310 for whiskers by the little pink bead nose and instead of cord used green ric rac.

Look at the cute little mouse holding a flower too large for him.
 I will make him again for me.

This lovely star came from Illene my SSCS partner as her ornament for me.
 I have a nativity set that I will put under this. Haven`t decded where to set this up yet. 
Well I`d best get on as have a few chores to do before setting up my Christmas Tree with my ornaments,wallhangs and framed pieces etc.
Thankyou for visiting. Hope you enjoyed yor time here.
Happy Stitching,
