Ho Ho Ho..... A very Merry Christmas to every blogger and their family

I finally finished my Felt Christmas Wreath and it is now hanging on the front door to welcome everyone and put a smile on their face.

Step 1

Start with a plain green felt wreath, stuff it with stuffing and sew on lots of light green and dark green holly leaves which have been embroidered and sequined.
Step 2
From felt, make a Jolly Santa and a Happy Snowman and add embroidery and sequins to brighten
Step 3
Add toys of all sorts, drums for boys and skates for girls with balls of fun for everyone
Step 4
Boxes of gifts with bows on top....
 Step 5
Candy canes and snowflakes to fill in the gaps
Step 6

Put them all together and what do you get...............

Well isn't Christmas the most busiest of times,  I am frantically trying to finish my Christmas Wreath to get it up before the festive seasons ends.... hopefully have a post soon.

In the meantime, here is a lovely Rosalie Quinlan stitchery that I finished and put on a canvas frame for  hanging.  I attended a class with Rosalie a couple of months ago and haven't made it back there yet but I hope to do another in the new year.

The thread is a Cottage Garden called Snapdragon and I love the way the red and green blend together.

I have also managed to finish my Crazy Quilt Beginners Class and here is the finished block.  All the silk ribbon work and beading is done and I popped on some charms and lace motifs to finish it off.

Very very happy with this class by Kathy, I would highly recommend you keeping an eye out in the New Year for the next Beginners Class and I am waiting to sign up for the Intermediate Class now.

Beads and sequins added.
 See the difference a few embroidery stitches and beading makes........
