As promised on my last post here are the cushions for the girls. They are now all wrapped up and ready for going under the tree (well when the tree is up!)
This is Becki's Ballerina and also the back of the cushion to show the lovely fabric I had.



















Then here is Laura's Tigger cushion. This was hand stitched onto a cushion I had bought from the shop.
This past week I have finished the last 2 ornaments I wanted to stitch. Here is the one that is for one of my Aunt and Uncles. I have just a bit more hand sewing to do on the last one so I'll show that next time.

I am still working on my LK Christmas is Forever, that is nearly finished so again I'll show that soon. Otherwise that is it for my Christmas stitching. Sadly Henry didn't make it out..... but I have decided December is a "Free for all" stitching wise. I did this last year and abandoned the rota and just stitched on whatever took my fancy. I want to get some more charity squares done before the end of the year as I haven't done many recently. On Saturday I finished one and have started another today. My only rules for December are NO new starts until January except with charity squares. Although I had another little start at the weekend....... Robert Pattinson "Stitch a Star"... but that doesn't count as it was still November!

Lastly here is my hand-made Advent Calendar all set up and full of chocolates ready for Dec 1st tomorrow. I am so glad I finally got around to stitching this and the girls are looking forward to munching on their first gifts tomorrow.



Happy December everyone!!!
