only showing a few

There are a lot of things being made around these parts that can't be shown on here yet ... but there are some that can. So here we go.

I made a couple of tree decorations on my embroidery machine.

I embroidered some seasonally appropriate words on to this wee piece of fabric.

I attached it to some sparkly felt and added a ribbon hanger. Very cool!

Debbie asked me to make another stegosaurus for a friend's baby. This time I used ribbons for his spiney bits instead of felt.

I dug out some Christmas fabrics and made some bibs for Emily. I wasn't intending to make 8 but, once I got started, I couldn't stop! LOL

Emily - and Debbie, Jason and Molly - was over at our house on Saturday. At lunchtime, she wore one of her Grammie-made "first Christmas" bibs.

Her favourite game at the moment is crawling to the nearest piece of furniture and standing.

She's 9 months old! I suspect it won't be long before she's walking! Yikes!

And finally, this is one of the photos Debbie took of Emily as her Christmas photos. A - dor- able!

I don't know if I'll be back on here again before the big day so, if not, let me wish you all a Merry Christmas. I hope Santa's good to you!

  3. I just love the ornaments. They look like iced gingerbread biscuits.
    Will Emily be with you on Christmas Day? I will have my girls here....Ruby 7 and Marlowe 18 months and I really can't wait.
    I hope you have a wonderfully Merry Christmas.
    Hugs-x-

    1. Thanks, Sheila. We won't have Emily (and family) here on Christmas Day but we'll go to see them on the 27th. None of us wants to be on the road on Christmas Day so we just stay in our own houses and visit later. It's like extending Christmas for a few days!

      Merry Christmas to you and all your family. :o)
