Come visit with me as I stitch and craft my way from one Christmas to the next - I like to have Christmas projects close by me all year. I have a particular fondness for Santas and Angels. If you have the time, leave a comment so I know you've visited.

My final finishes for 2014

The last of my Christmas ornaments for 2014.  I stitched these for two delightful neighbour children, sisters.

This year I have stitched and finished 51 Christmas ornaments and made two stitched pieces for framing.  Not my most prolific stitching year, but I am pleased to have finished all the projects on my stitching list for 2014.

More Christmas Pics - my Kitchen and Sitting Room

My biggest White Santa.  He has been art of my Christmas since the early 1990s.

Christmas Joy

Miss Angela, wearing her new Christmas collar sent to her by Julia in WA:

Thank you, Auntie Julia

And I have  more finished ornaments to celebrate.  These are for the latest members of my extended family.

And I have stitched and finished two more, but mailed them to England without first taking photos. I thought these would be my final ornaments for 2014, but I'm stitching again - Christmas ornaments for two neighbourhood little girls who will be visiting me before Christmas.

Some more Christmas photos:

I will be back in a day or so with photos of my kitchen (christmas salt and pepper collection and fridge magnets) and sitting room (Christmas trees and white Santas), then later with pictures of my top landing (Jim Shaw Santas), lounge room (Santas including my vintage Santas) and study (nativities and nutcrackers)
