Christmas Bits

I am finally back in Blog land...... I have been meaning to post something for days but just never seem to get around to it.
Firstly thank you for all the lovely comments about my Flatfold. I have to make the other one yet, I just don't seem to have enough hours in the day to sort everything!
Here is my Christmas Tree I showed you in the last post - now as a 3D card for my mom and dad. I hope they like it.
I also finished the Victorian Christmas Lady a few days ago and mounted it in its little frame. There are many designs with this one that I love, they are Joan Elliot ones. My next Christmas pieces I am currently working on are a letter R and L to put on a Christmas gift bag for the girls.
Lastly I made this Pudsey Bear bookmark the other week for Children in Need. Laura wanted it for college as her form were having a sale to raise money, but in the end they just sold cakes and Laura kept the bookmark for herself!
I haven't touched any of my larger stitching pieces, maybe once I have all these little Christmas pieces sorted I'll get back to them.
Happy stitching

The Flatfold !

Here it is, the attempt at a Flatfold with my Forever Friends Christmas piece. It's not perfect but I am pretty pleased with it. There is just an annoying small blob of glue showing on the top left hand corner!!

And the side view -
And the back view -
My mom bought me the material and I have enough left to do the other Forever Friends Christmas Stocking stitching I finished a few months ago. So I will have matching Flatfolds!
I am in the "Christmas" stitching mood! I have also just completed this Christmas Tree on perforated paper. It is in the latest World of Cross Stitching magazine and will make a 3D card. I will post another photo when it is done.
Otherwise I have been working on some charity stitching, sadly the photos are a bit dark of these so I'll leave them off!
Sorry just a brief post to show photos as I have to go and pick up Becki in a moment from dancing!
Happy stitching
Ginnie xx
