Online Advent Calendar - 22nd

Welcome to day 22 of the on-line advent calendar, as organised by Jo of Serendipitous Stitching
For your advent picture I'm sharing this lino-printed poinsettia card I made

Also a picture of my "Geek-mas" tree. Extra brownie points for anyone who can identify all the fandoms. 

Jo also asked us to share our favourite Christmas song. Lots of my favourite songs have already been chosen, but I thougfht you might enjoy this - the Sans Day Carol, a traditional Cornish Christmas Carol.
Happy Christmas to you all

The Last Gifted Gorgeousness of 2018

Running a little late this month, but I do have some things to show for December's Gifted Gorgeousness (for an explanation of Gifted Gorgeousness please see Jo's blog here)
First we have the Annual Needlecraft Haven Christmas Ornament Exchange. Here is the ornament I made and sent to Angi

And here is the gorgeous one I received from Julie

Not the best picture as I'd already hung it and had to climb on a chair to get the photo
Next a Secret Santa Exchange through the Craft, Craft and More Craft Group on Facebook - this is what I sent

And I received these fabulous personalised baubles for all the family

Even the cats were included
And finally a huge thank you for the Birthday gifts I received from lovely stitchy friends. A book token from Barb, and this amazing Marvel tote bag from Julie

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

At least around the front door.
I've decorated my wreath and hung it - white hydrangeas and silvered cones this year

And we've put out the pallet tree David made a couple of years ago, together with a new addition - a 3' willow Angel.

The tree is up in the house, but not decorated as the girls like to do that when they come home
