As requested I'm showing some Christmas stitching and some favourite decorations.
Stitching first. This is a piece I stitched a few years ago, but which I don't think I've shown on the blog before, a Hardanger and Bargello snowscape sampler.
In the end I decided to show you some of my vintage ones.
The tiny glass baubles in this little wooden display box mostly belonged to my Grandmother. My favourite is the little glass acorn
And this poseable Jack Frost belonged to either my Aunt or my Mum (I'm not sure which because they both had one and I don't really know which one I acquired and which one my sister got). I can't remember a Christmas when he wasn't there, and I'm pretty sure he's older than me. I'd guess mid-fifties from the look of him, anyway I absolutely love him and he comes out every year despite the fact that everyone else in the house thinks he's hideous.
