Firstly I want to say a big thank you for all your lovely comments on my last post, I am so glad you all liked my cottage and my pink coat. I had 25 comments and that's the most I've ever had, it was so great to read them all.
I have managed to get all 3 of my Christmas Gifts finally finished off today. Here is Mom's compact mirror - I love this rose there is no back stitch but it looks so real. I wish it was postioned a little more to the left in the mirror but never mind.
I also put the poppies and butterfly stitching into its coaster for my MIL and I backed the Lily bookmark for my Auntie with lovely bright pink felt. I am about to go and wrap up her present now, I have bought her the Julie Walters autobiography to go with the bookmark.
Thought I'd share another piece of Christmas stitching that I made a while ago. The photo isn't very clear and doesn't show the gold thread that reads "Noel" and Joy".
I have worked on Lest We Forget a lot the last few days and will take a photo of that soon as it is nearly complete. I have also started a "stitch a star" piece from Cross Stitcher magazine of Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow, this will be for Julie's daughter whose 18th birthday party is next week. I won't complete it for then though so she'll just get it when it's finished!!
Next week we have several nights at the girl's school helping with the refreshments for their Christmas Production so you may not see a post from me until the end of the week. I will also try to catch up on my blog reading as I seem to have not read anyone else's recently.... so sorry.
Enjoy your week.Ginnie x
