I have finished my Christmas making and it feels so so good!
The table mats are ready to wrap; lesson learnt from yesterday, I took photos whilst the daylight was good, albeit before I tied off and buried the threads, but at least they look pretty much how they do in real life.
A charm pack of Bluebird Park and natural Essex Linen from Fabric HQ and all eight actually do measure up at 12" x 15", not huge. but plenty big enough for when there are that many round the table.
I am going to have to start canvassing ideas for next year, as my parents now have their quota of the big makes, or have they earned a year off?!
That done, tomorrow I will have to tidy up my side of the conservatory/dining room so that it doesn't feel like we are eating our Christmas lunch in a fabric addict's lair!
The hand stitching projects are on standby, but honestly I don't think there will be time or energy for much over the next week or so, hence blogging may be a bit more sporadic, but that's going to be pretty much par for the course for everyone.
So for now, have fun with all that last minute prep; stay warm, dry and happy xxx
