Christmas Plans For November.

Posted on | November 1, 2016 | 12 Comments

The horses are off and racing but I am happy to watch the big race on TV – Melbourne Cup. It is overcast and cool so I hope all the race goers stay warm and dry.

I have decided it is time to catch up with a few Christmas plans and make some decorations. When browsing through Pinterest I found a cat decoration which I thought could double up for Christmas, so made my own variation with felt.


I am now also making them in white.

I have completed this little Marg Low embroidery in variegated thread. It has to be framed in a hoop, ready to hang. The original pattern comes with buttons for the Santa and Sleigh, but I chose to embroider them for this one.


I am sure everyone has lots of plans for November. Good luck with your stitching.

And I hope your horse wins!

Cheers, Karen

    Eek!! It’s November already! I love your sweet Christmas cats. The striped ribbon you’ve used reminds me of candy canes. Your stitchery is so pretty in Christmas coloured variegated thread. I hope you had a fun day watching the cup. I like seeing the fashions and hats.
