Christmas Time

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 
 my friends.
What a busy time with friends and family.
It has been a lovely time.
Also finishing stitching at the last minute.
Plus finding that I became unwell,I still have a sore throat and taking meds.
That slowed me down as I wanted to bless more but hasn`t happened.
So to what I did do and some of my gifts the came my way. 

I made these two for two of my friends Kath and Katrina.

This is what I gave katrina.
The lovely angel doll,a 12 days of Christmas Ornament with candy inside,
a block roll and Santa cork bottle stopper.

This is for Kath.
The lovely angel doll,a 12 days of Christmas Ornament with candy inside,
a block roll and snowman cork bottle stopper.
These are so cute. 

A beautiful doll from kath with the latest DMCs 
Kath has made her so lovely and will be out all year round.

Katrina gave me these lovely gifts.
`Piecemaker ` tapestry needles which I love to use,
`Count Your Blessings` a La-D-Da  pattern,
(some stitching for me)
a cute little angel and tissues.
A closeup of the ornament hanging on my tree.
These ornaments make a lovely display on the tree.

My SSCS Christmas gift came from Shez.
This lovely wallhanging.
Thankyou Shez it is lovely and hung already.

This is what I sent to Fiona for my gift for SSCS.
Thankyou to Chookyblue and Googy Girl for organizing this swap. 

Maria my partner for Celebration Swap for 2013
 gave me my Christmas gift wrapped in this lovely fabric.
I will use in one of my Christmas project which is yet to be decided.

I made this cushion cover for her saying 
`Celebrate love and giving`.
Fiona has put a cushion inner in and it looks lovely.

These two `Shepherd Bush` stockings I stitched for our grandchildren.
I finished them a few days before Christmas so they could hang them up.
I use the pattern `Peter` for the lamp,star/heart border
so used charms from my collection of charms as the main pattern is `Harry`.
We had to have the trains.
The other one was stitched from `Jillian`s stocking with its charm pack attached.

Well I best get on, till next time thankyou for the lovely comments
in friendship.
