Merry Christmas

I am so in tune with the season ... finally got my stocking garland up today!!!

The latest in my collection of Christmas houses has been up for some time though. (They seem to be getting smaller every year)

Here's how they look on the mantelpiece - the light's no good (too sunny!!!! unbelievable!!!) but you get the general impression.
I would like to wish all who read this (now very occasional) blog a Happy Christmas and a peaceful New Year.

Christmas Stockings

See - I can still sew! These are my Christmas cards, I started them months ago with every intention of finishing them nice and early. Best laid plans .... they were finally finished last Sunday.

I wanted to take some good pictures before I wrote out the cards but the light has been terrible lately. I've made more than I can send so I'm going to turn some of them into a garland for my above my mantelpiece so hopefully will get a better piture then. They are made in the same way as fabric postcards - just in a different shape (you can click the picture for a closer look). Very fun to make - especially if, like me, you have lots of ribbons to hand.
