The last pieces of 2010

The last days of the year. We never have so much snow as last weeks. The world is white and it will be a White Christmas since years.
Of course our tree is decorated with balls and ornies with memories. Some angels from Germany, little gifts from friends, the first santa's, which my son choose 23 years ago. I love to see the tree this way.

And this year for the first time is my goose made from Tilda design. Isn't cute?

We baked a lot of cookies and cooked nice meals, the smell of this trio is all around us. I have finished the LHN gingerbreads like this because when the other seasons come I can change the front. I love how it tuns out although we don't have time to hang it up.

My exchange piece for our private SWAP. It took a month before it arrived at Angela's home. Such a relief. The postmen were striking over and over again so I was so glad that it arrived in time. Luckily Angela loves the ornie. The design is from Brittercup.

Not only Angela has to wait so long for her ornie. Ela has also to wait for her ornie and can you imagine that France is so nearby.

LHN ornies of the months. They shows how different they look when you used different fabric.
I finished the red one is a little bag.

Dash away from the Sampler girl.

Another two pieces from the Sampler girl. The design was published in the Gift of Stitching. The ornie on the right is for my friend Rebecca. I also made an ornie for my friend Barbara but I think it wouldn't reach her before Christmas. So I cann't show it yet.

It's really nice to use the little bag this way. Just fill it with something Chrimassy.

The last ornie is a design from Lizzie Kate. I love this one. Look at the little bells!

Thanks for visiting me and for your sweet comments.

Christmasbox and BBD piece.

Last week we got a lot of snow as you can see so it was good time for stitching. I finished my Christmas candy box from Country Cottage Needleworks design: Peppermint Lane. We love peppermint candies. Nowdays it's easy to buy them. So no Christmas without candycans. I stitched the design on 32 count Zweigart linen and finished it on the top of the box. Really happy with how it turns out.

These two tiny beauties came from my BBD exchangepartner Christina. The left one is from the design Autumn Stars, JCS halloween issue 2009. The scissorsfob is taken from Strawberry Garden, LF 18. Both are beaded around. Aren't they beautiful? I like them so thank you so much, Christina.
