Nearly Christmas

Hello my friends.
The weeks have flown by so thought I`d best say I`m still here.
Like everyone else I`m getting ready for Christmas Day.
 We have some of our family coming to us.

I stitched `Believe` sometime ago from a Christmas issue of `Stoney Creek` magazine.
I`m still looking for a silver frame to complete this.
Next Christmas I will hang it up!

A boxed gift from Lorraine http://grannyloz came a few days ago  for Mrs Martins Quilt Shop `Christmas Angel Swap,2012`.
I`m going to use the lovely box to hold one of my BOMs.

So beautifully wrapped and Lorraine made lovely labels for me. 

All on display.
 At the back is a basket of flowers in a wall hanging,a postcard and kit.
 Then an angel stitched across the top of the stocking.
Stitchery is from `Tis the Season` book.
`Home for Christmas` as Christmas decoration with star gift tag.
 A wool felt bird holding flower for a candle mat.
For something sewing is a lovely needle book.
 I`ve shown a few close ups of some of parcel from Lorraine.

The gift tag I attached to a pair of scissors .

The stitched little bird on the cover of the needle book.

I am now using this lovely needle book. I can`t have enough of them.
Thankyou  Mrs Martin for setting this up for us to do.
Thankyou Lorraine for the lovely gifts for me.
Merry Christmas everyone and I pray you have a blessed `Saviours Day`.
Happy Stitching,
