christmas stitching

I have been quite slack when it has come to christmas stitching this year.
Now that we are into the final stretch I thought I better get a wriggle on.
Not long to go now on my Chistmas cross stitching...... just a 'J' and the top border and it is ready to go


another little cross stitchery. Still need to decide how this will come together
then these three little sneak peaks
they may be secret gifts or they may just be gifts. Haven't decided yet.
But I am enjoying making them.
a woolly santa for something different

I love this pretty little angel....


This weekend I hope to get back to Swan Lake and finish off the remaining flowers that need appliqueing.
Hopefully I can get it done and if mum is free she can help me get it together.
There will be some happy dancing if that happens. Mum may even join in!
Have a safe and stitchy weekend!
Marina
