I've been determined to get on with making Xmas decorations for my new house, but have been struggling with inspiration of late. The red discs toward the back of the shot were inspired by my colleague, Janet (Fairy Thoughts). She is holding a Christmas craft workshop at work this Saturday and had course info leaflets printed out which showed a picture of Xmas decs she'd made, so i used the round design and sewed anything that came to hand on them (yarn, buttons, safety pins, beads, ribbon, etc). I've attached ribbons to them and am hoping they make their way onto the as yet, non-existent Christmas tree.
Next to all that is a template for the two Christmas stockings I'm making for my partner Dan and I. I got the fabric from work. It's thicker than cotton, but not as rough as sacking/hessian and has a delightful print of Santa and Rudolph on it. See -
Other things to do this week include: Cutting stock card into Christmas cards, figuring out what I've done with all the Christmas themed cross stitches i did earlier this year that are meant to go on the aforementioned cards, cut gift tags out of old birthday cards, potato print brown paper for gift wrap and wrap the presents bought so far. Fun times!
Go and have a look at the other blogs that Julia stamping-ground has signed up while i get on with this mountain of craft!
