Lastly I am a very lazy stitcher. There are so many things to do that there is not much time left for stitching. I planned that at the beginning of December I will already have 5 or 6 ornaments done and prepared to be hang on a Christmas tree. But my constant changes in the duty roster at my workplace completely changed my plans.
So there is not much progress to show, but let me post here a few photos. There will be at least 4 more. And of course they all will be sew into proper Christmas ornaments. So that’s how my work looks like now:
|First from the set of 4 winter animals.|
Because I planned to do some more Christmas stitching and I found a beautiful pattern for a Christmas candlestick ( just need to find a proper glass and stitch a pattern on a proper piece of fabric) I’ve also done some shopping. So here are my first metallic DMC flosses. I’ve never used metallic floss before and I hope the effect will be worth the cost of it. And to make a difference this time I decided to buy green and red fabric instead of white. I hope to show you something made from this soon.

I took part in a Christmas card exchange. Shirlee from farmhouseponderings.blogspot.com start a great idea of exchanging Christmas cards from different places. It is such a nice idea especially because sending traditional Christmas cards seems to be abandoned and replace by emails and text messages. I’ve already prepared some beautiful Christmas cards and I will send them tomorrow. I hope Shirlee will like them. I really like the idea of such exchanges. I would like to take part in some more of them. Maybe I will start one by myself? Would you like to take part in some nice Christmas themed exchange?
Thanks for stopping by!
Until next time!
