December is here

Oh dear. It is the 2nd December and I have hardly done any of my decorating. Might have to get going today! But I do have some Christmas goodies to share with you from the shop this week. Some ladies have been very busy getting ready for Christmas. On Monday, I had a Christmas day at Hobbysew and we had a very lovely day stitching, painting and chatting along with a little eating too. I should have taken some photos of the ladies but forgot! Barb had these wonderful cross stitches to show us. They are 2 gorgeous cushions to decorate her home this year.

 This isn't Christmassy but I was so impressed with Barb's curtains on her little painted house we did at the May stitching day. How impressive are they and how tricky to get them in just the right place!
 Roni had made these great felted trees! They have wire in the centre so you can bend them however you like.
 On Tuesday, Coralee impressed everyone with all the projects she had completed for Christmas. It is exciting for me to see my patterns all made up too. Here is starry Santa.
 This great tree is made with folded fabric and looks fantastic.
 Then check out all of these decorations made into a hanger.
 Coralee also made a few hexagon decorations...just a few!
 Sorry for the blurry photo but here is the felt decoration and the canvas stocking from the last stitching day.
 These are lovely coasters.

 Lynne has been making hexagon decorations too and has used the most amazing fabric that fits perfectly into the centre of each hexagon!
 Helen has just finished this beautiful stitchery.
I do feel fairly inspired now to get my decorations out and at least make a start!
