Happy Christmas and SSCS

Happy Christmas my friends.

Thankyou Chookyblue and her helper Janice for
sorting out this swap for us all.
Susan @ Thimblestitch sent me these lovely gifts.

Inside a Christmas box:
( I love having boxes and tins:) )
a lovely pincushion with delicate quilting,
a little bag to hold threads cut from stitching,
a cute holder with needles an thread inside,
two dove buttons and
a chocolate Christmas tree.
This is yet to be eaten!

This lovely doll from the 1st Homespun Magazine 
by Wendy Briggs,the stocking from Just Cross Stitch Ornament magazine
and a nativity wall hanging are my gifts for Fiona 
of peacefulthreads blogspot. 

This was in our Church service handout.

The last few weeks have been packing up my sewing area.
This was so we could lay new carpet in our lounge.
A busy time with Christmas gifts to finish !!!
But we got there.

I have had the use of this space for at least 26 years.
So has been a sad time to see it go.

The template of where my sewing area was.

New carpet down,so soft under foot.
It is cut pile showing tone on tone.
In the New Year the wallpaper will be done.
Then some portable units for a temporary
sewing area once Christmas tree is put away.

Well enjoy your Christmas.
I will post about my other gifts soon.
Hope you have time for some stitching,

Santa`s Sleigh came by

Hello my friends.
Santa`s Sleigh came by today.

My parcel from my SSCS partner was delivered to me today.
I pray my parcel has reached its new home too!!

Two parcels,one for Christmas Day and the other
to open now with ornament for the tree.
Our tree isn`t up yet as the new lounge carpet is yet to be 
put down.
So will put parcel where it`s safe for now. 

Cute ribbon round the parcels.
Will use in a project at a later date.
Love the tiny stitches on this ornament.
A surprise a lovely kit.
`Festive Snippets` 
by `The Birdhouse`.
So enjoy Natalie`s designs.

What fun.
Happy Stitching,
