It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

I have been very busy making over the last few weeks. My wire hearts were very popular . Here’s one custom order I made:image

And then there was my two Secret Santas to make and buy for. I really liked making these but it is quiet nerve racking to wait to see if they like their presents. I have one of mine so far and can’t wait to open them on Christmas Day. Thank you Sewchet for organising this. Photos to follow.

I also thought I would share with you my Poppies picture that I blogged about previously. A friend bought it and has framed it making it look amazing. image

It has convinced me to make more and to frame my finished art pieces. It really boosted my confidence too.

Now time to decorate my tree. Yes it’s the 22nd and my tree is bare! We had essential work to our son’s room and that meant all their stuff was moved to any spare space. So no room for a tree until yesterday. Now it’s returning to normal, I can get on with making my house a bit more festive and enjoying Christmas with my family.

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas x

Now I have to decide on finishing another dress you can just see under this one, making for a craft stall I am running in August or using the blue linen I washed yesterday to make my first pair of trousers.  Too many choices. I also have a plan for an alphabet task to make for work and is it to early to mention the C word? Bet Santa is ……….
