Christmas things

Only 2 sleeps til santa comes, even though my boys are older they still get excited.
Yesterday we made this gingerbread house, its the first time we have done this and it was so much fun, the boys ate more lollies than they put on the house but hey!! its christmas. Thats what they kept telling me.

As soon as it was finished they wanted to start eating it, typical boys. I'm making them wait until christmas day before they can have a nibble. Aren't I mean.

At work we did a Kris Kringle where we had to make something for one person, Marian made for me and this is what I reiceved, its a great couch companion that she designed herself.

Look at the embriodery, its just beautiful.

This is a needlecase and its so cute, she even embriodered my name on the front.

My on line stitching group do a christmas swap each year and this year we had to give 6 gifts, one to open each day from the 20th Dec. My secret santa was Razzy and this is the first gift I reiceved from her. Its so sweet, look at the choccy spoon. I love it.

I'll be back tomorrow to share more photo of my gifts, have a great day everyone and I hope you don't have too much more to do before christmas day.

So do we thing the boys share their mums creative talent & brilliant colour combining?? Maybe not, maybe they are just a tad more abstract??? Nice gifts. A couch caddy is a wonderful thing to have. Tracee xx
