Welcome to the weekly hand stitching party! Make yourself a cup of tea, coffee or hot chocolate and visit the links below for some creative inspiration.
It's a busy time of year and there is a lot to be done for Christmas, but for a few minutes today, just breathe and stitch, and take a break from all your planning, list making, and worrying.
I did finally get the Christmas tree up and my favourite decoration (that my friend Gail made for me) is hung with care. I will add a few more ornaments as I feel inspired. My Grinchyness is really about the consumerism and resisting the pressure of expectations that surround us.
In my heart I am a Christmas elf with not enough time to fulfill my handmade gift fantasies!
As I mentioned last week, I have recently become fascinated by Flosstube. Thank you to each person who made some channel recommendations in the comments, and I hope to try to visit those channels over the Christmas break.
