Yep, I've been so slow at getting my butt into gear this year that I never thought I'd get there but today I can breathe easy and begin to wind down!
The festive foods are all waiting in the fridges and larder, the presents are all wrapped, Mr. Turkey is defrosting and I think at long last, I can shout out I'M READY!

I haven't got all the sewing projects completed that I would have liked to but the bits that I have, I'll share with you now . . .

Another simple stitch and flip stocking with basic cream fabrics, looking quite boring at this stage!

Time to hunt the Christmas ribbons, trims and buttons out

and what a difference!

hanging up and all ready for Santa xxx

I stitched and showcased this little snowman back in January and he's been waiting patiently for a finish

so here he is, stitched up as another stocking

the green holly stitch is a programmed one from my sewing machine and I added the little Mill Hill beads as berries

This is a simple fabric panel 'The 12 Days of Christmas' which can be cut and used however you want

hmmm? no guessing as to what I chose

yep, more bunting but at least it's a change from the usual triangles

Christmas cookies for Santa and co.
(thanks to my gang of 3 for the mess and mayhem whilst making them!!!)

What a find!  Christmas bunny napkins for the table

but love the real thing better xxx

I hope you all have a lovely Christmas and it's everything you wish it to be!  A lot of us, I know, have had sad times this year including the loss of our dear blogging friend Cathey, but I hope you can rejoice with the happy memories and not be sad, families are so precious and we should all make every second count that we share together xxx

Thank you for all your support and comments throughout the year.

love from Jane, Tilly and Oscar
