Today has gone just as planned. A lazy morning, a lovely fry up (yummy) and a good session on my sewing machine.
My plan for a homemade Christmas is going well, I must admit. I have found refuge in lots of hooky time and really enjoyed writing out a list of what I will make for each person I am sending a gift to. And guess what, I am on schedule!
Today was a great opportunity to sit down and try and recall the Stocking Workshop I attended over two weeks ago. Lindsey and Sandra must have done a good job because I had no problem!
I cut out all of the components and stitched them together. Oh I do love my sewing machine, it works like an absolute dream! I love hearing it chugging along keeping me company while I make!
I even remembered to snip into the curves!!
And they are hanging (only for a few minutes for my to enjoy though ... far to early for festive decorations!!)
I loved using this lacy trim to add a little vintage cheer. Doesn't it look like rolling snowy hills and Christmas trees. I would love to be somewhere like that now. All wrapped in lovely woolly warmers! Ahhhhhh!
This is the reverse of the third stocking. I actually think it looks really nice. Simply red, white and green. :)
Lovely ribbon, salvaged of a pyjama packet! Isn't it funny how when you start crafting, everything can be put to use!
I am starting to use my Facebook Page a lot more (do please pop over and say hi) as I am not getting as much time to write full blogs at the moment. So its great to just do a quick update and have a chat!
Finally, pop over to my Snowflake Swap post and put your name down! Go on ... it'll be fun!!!
