It’s never too early for Christmas crafting

OK I agree. January 5th may be a tad too early to even start thinking about Christmas crafts… Which means you’re going to have to remember this post for next year!

As I’ve explained in previous posts I didn’t have time to post these before christmas so I’ll share them with you now:

I really should’ve asked for a light box for Christmas! Imagine these being much lighter please.

Together with an angel I knitted last year from a magazine, I think my tree looked rather christmassy!

I think my favourites are the tree and the snowglobe. What about you?

I invited friends over on various evenings and we had a great time stitching away and drinking wine. I think I’ve converted a few to crafts as well as they’ve requested a valentines day card craft making session.

Have you converted any of your friends to crafts?

It’s not over till the fat lady sings (christmas that is)

Sorry boys and girls, I know it’s a bit late but I’ve got a few Christmas themed posts coming up…this being the first.

I started making these cards before my mammoth November card making session then totally forgot about them until the 23rd December when I had to pack to go to the boyfriend’s family’s house for Christmas, that was a hurried night.

Here’s a few pictures:

I stitched the tartan noel before the tartan stag (see my earlier post on that) and I didn’t like the tartan on this one. Naively I thought this one would be easiest- WRONG!

I think giving handmade cards add that extra little something and hopefully people appreciate just how much effort goes into them. It also keeps me busy so it’s not an entirely selfless act.

I’d love to see some of your cards.
