Playing Catch Up With Christmas.

Posted on | December 8, 2014 | 15 Comments

As always at this time of year, Christmas is coming far too quickly.  It is hard to stay in front.

But a lovely parcel arrived last week to improve the situation. It turns out Cheryll of Gone Stitchin is my final FHFS partner for 2014 and look at this lovely sight.

How lucky am I?

Thank you, Cheryll, for this delightful parcel of goodies. I look forward to discovering the contents when the allotted date arrives. It’s very exciting.


I have a large selection of ornaments that are too heavy for a normal tree and for several years I have been looking for an idea that would work for the heavies.

I found this perfect tree in a local store on the weekend and realised it would be perfect for the job.

It is as tall as me so should hold quite a few ornies.


I have been stitching away and getting in a few finishes.

These are Marg Low‘s felt Santas. Love the scarf on the back of them.

These little birds are also a Marg Low design.

And also a few more notebooks, also from Marg Low. (Definitely a pattern here.)

That’s a short and sharp post for today. Too many end of year functions to get to.

Hope you are enjoying a few as well.

Cheers, Karen
