It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas


It is about half past 4 in the afternoon, and already it is as good as dark outside. This time of year the days are just too short. Good thing that Mr Edison once thought of lamps! The little lights in the Christmas Tree are giving the room a glow all day and inside it is cosy and warm.

A little while ago I made a Christmas Stocking for a friend (haven’t shown it; I’m sorry), and my boys really liked it so I promised to make a few for our own bunch. And of course I forgot all about it!

Until this week. One of the boys asked me about it, and that was just 6 days before Christmas. And if I wanted to do it, I had to make 6 Stockings…….

So I bought some beautiful red flannel, and started to embroider the parts. They are not finished (at all!), but…. it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Wow! It's absolutely gorgeous! :) I wish I could do that - I've only done cross stitch.

The embroidery is beautiful! It would take me weeks to do just one of those!
