Feeling Festive

It seems that Christmas is in the air all over blogland. I have seen lovely Christmas wreaths...( Handmade with love)

Crochet baubles ...( Meet me at Mike's)

I want to make some of these lovely trees to make into a garland too. ( The Royal Sisters)

So it seems the right time to share with you my Christmas card progress. This year I have made two original embroideries, next I will take them to the printers to be reduced and copied onto card.I get them for 30 something pence each. Hey presto, original, cheap and quick !

Now I think of it , jingle needs some gold sequins to finish it off, I'll do that this evening...

I've been doing some supply teaching this week in school so I have sung "Away in a Manger" for the first time this year. You know Christmas is coming when 5 year olds are asking you " What is a manger anyway ?"

Hope you are feeling festive wherever you are and that you have a festive project to work on too.
love Louise x


  1. Hey Louise :) Never thought of making my own cards from my own craft projects. I loved both of them. I'm looking forward to seeing the printed cards as well.


  2. Everything is as darling as can be, Lousie, the Baubles are my favorites, a great idea! Happy hugs for a lovely day xxxx

  3. Hi Louise,
    I am so pleased things are improving for you and that you have time and feel like making pretty things. Simply beautiful.
    Love Suex
