There was a lovely surprise waiting for me yesterday in my letter box.
A parcel from Jenny saying thank you for being a part of her Stitchery Retreat last month.
Jenny asked me for something Christmassy. This wasn't too much of a stretch as I'm nearly always thinking Christmas. And since I'm usually making things at the last minute they need to be 'simple and quick'.
Stitched tags, strung together like a bunting, hung on a tree (Jenny did this) or tied to a gift. And because I have a 'thing' for gift pillows, I couldn't resist decorating a little stitched pillow with one. Finally, a Merry Christmas sign to hang at the front of the bunting (this would also make a cute pillow).
But Christmas is still a long way off.......... isn't it? Last Monday I spotted a Santa at Holbrook holding the number '59'. This can't be right was my immediate reaction quickly followed by........yes it is!
If you're anything like me and enjoy making gifts but tend to leave them to the last minute (I hope not) this is the perfect pattern. I have 3 patterns to giveaway. To enter the draw simply leave a comment by next Friday 7 November.
