Not long now

The big day is almost here and I for one cannot wait. I am a big kid where Christmas is concerned, just love this time of year. One thing that would improve it though is the weather would love to have some cold, crisp, dry days with a hint of sun. Nothing better than walking when frosty, love to see the pattens made by a frost, Mother Nature is so perfect in many ways.

Not much on the making front apart from stitching out some free standing lace flowers onto organza, now have a selection of these to use in projects. Also tested out 3 lace flowers, liking the petal one best (bottom right) and have ordered rather a lot of the petal ribbon and guipure lace, not to mention the pearl diamante centres as think the ones with the leaf style petals are the best. Have added brooch bars to the back. Being small they are handy to wear, add to a handbag to dress it up for an evening out or a small gift to give as a thank you.

Not sure what is planned this week, looking for some crystal icicles for the tree, a trip to Forest Lodge may be on the cards. Love their Christmas displays as they have colour and theme rooms ie gold, silver, country etc.

Paris label bag

Another week and ever nearer Christmas day, the tree is up, the house decorated. Most of the food bought just the fresh to be delivered on the 23rd. Writing the cards today ready to post off tomorrow. The house is all twinkly and festive gives me a warm cosy glow, no I have not been on the Bailey's yet, lol.

Makes this week,  another bag this time using ivory cotton canvas and raw silk.  The texture of raw silk and stitching the Paris labels was fun. Backed with the cream guipure lace, love this fabric so sumptuous.

Will be exciting when I launch in January a new direction for a New Year.

Have fun.
