I also received this very effective stitched card from my friend Hege in Norway - thank you.
and this is the Christmas stocking I have been stitching for DS. Now he is 18 Santa will not be leaving a sack of pressies but I have stitched this as a keep sake and it will have in it a bottle of his favourite beer. Santa is also leaving the usual socks, book and calendar. I just have the rest of the beads to attach then I can get the machine out to sew it up.
Stefan's Christmas Stocking - The Drawn Thread
Just to be Christmasy this is our tree with all the gifts waiting for Thursday - they are mainly the ones from us to family although there are some interesting packages with our names on.The cards by the fire are all DH's birthday ones, I had to lift them off the mantle to put my candles on.
As you can see I love snowmen, so we have snowmen sitting on the tv and a Hearnden snowman family on the mantle - the likeness is really good isn't it hee hee.
I hope you all have a really festive time, wishing everyone very Merry Christmas.
