HAVE A DELIGHTFUL CHRISTMAS EVERYONE, AND AN AMAZING 2020...

Thank you for all your lovely comments on my last post; that's Pearl, Culliesocks Kate, Pat, Craftychris, scrAPamondo, Sandma, Flo, pearshapedcrafting Chris, and Gerrina, and to everyone who is reading this blog, we would like to wish you all a very delightful Christmas, and an amazing and joyful 2020!

Here are a few bits and bobs, just photographed, to assist in the Merry Christmas wishes:

One of my most favourite festive decorations is this fabulous reindeer, who sits in pride of place on my mantelpiece every year.  His name is 'Dave', and one of my crafty 'students' Helen has a bit of a sewing session every Christmas and one year she made Dave for me, and here he is...


Here is another beauty again made by Helen...
Santa is his name...


I have several more including 'Celeste' the angel, a snowman in a flowerpot, a Rudolph (this year's make), and a robin amongst others.  Love them all Helen x

I have added this wreath made for the last Hochy shows to the centre of the mantelpiece, with its dingly dangly bells..


Here is a star card full of Joy...


 And to finish I have a beautiful card sent to us by a customer - Janet, and I though it was so pretty I had to share it with you..


So have a very Merry Christmas one and all.
Back soon,
Jean x

I love how we bring out our Christmas favourites every year. I have a Christmas Elf on my tree that hung on my parents tree for as long as I can remember and I would never part with him. I wish you and Malcolm a very peaceful Christmas and the best of everything in 2020. Crafty hugs, Sandra xx
