Almost Christmas

Happy Christmas

Look what I ordered from Nancy at Coeur D'Alene

Had been admiring these tags for some time and thought an ideal gift but could not give away as so beautiful, so have kept as a Christmas gift for moi, they will be ideal as bookmarks when I start to research for my new lines in 2011

also enclosed in my parcel was this beautiful vintage Christmas tag and notelet from Nancy.

Thank you Nancy your gift line is fantastic.

Christmas is nearly here, come for a tour round my decorated living room:

We have collected decorations throughout the years and each year add something special to our tree, this year was a Jim Shore Disney Tradition creation of Jiminy Cricket as company to Snow White and the Seven Dwarves last year

This will be my last blog post before Christmas and I would like to wish you all a very
Happy Christmas & may all your dreams come true.

What a week

Show and Tell Monday

The weather has been so cold, with snow and ice on the ground, many housebound for several days, for me a perfect time all snug and warm to spend sewing doing what I love.

A black Gladstone style bag, this is an order for a very good customer, she loved the brown one but her favourite colour is black, sometimes with a hint of red and I had to oblige.

Not much else to report from snowy Southern England but don't forget to
check out the other Show and Tell blogs at Make Mine Pink

Snowed In

Snowed in on a Pink Friday of 'Sleigh Bells and Winter Roses'

No sign of the roses but can almost here the sleigh bells having a practice run for the 24th December, only 22 days to go, the tension is mounting.

We are at a standstill and have not been out since Tuesday, snug as a bug, heating on fire lit and plenty of food, the smell of butterscotch cakes in the oven, a perfect day.
