Advent Challenge Day Nineteen...

... Dala Horse



When I was a little girl my Papa gave me a beautiful wooden horse decorated in brightly painted colours, I love it and still have it to this day. I never knew it was called a 'Dala Horse' until Googling what one was for this challenge. So here is my embroidered interpretation!

Advent Challenge Day Eighteen...

... Festive Food 



I love a Christmas pudding motif, I think it's so jolly! So I'm glad I can include it somewhere in my advent challenge! 

Only 7 more to go! 

See you tomorrow

Advent Challenge Day Seventeen...

... Frozen 




This time next week it will be Christmas Eve, can you believe it?! I cannot wait! 

My Christmas shopping is getting done slowly but surely, the plan was to hand-make my gifts this year, but true to form I've left things too late, there's always next year, maybe I'll get started on them in January (or maybe not!)

Have a good Wednesday,
See you tomorrow

Advent Challenge Day Sixteen...

... Gingerbread House 




Things are getting busier round these parts, as Christmas gets closer, my to do list gets longer! (Shamless plug: if you would like a free download to-do list that I created look here)

I'm trying to stay on top of the advent challenge as I'd be gutted if I didn't finish.

How are your Christmas preparations going?

See you tomorrow,

Advent Challenge Day Fifteen..

.. Stars





A simple one today, I'm not entirely loving it (in fact I don't love it at all), I spent ages on it and just decided 'this will do' not the attitude I know, but it'll do! 

In other festive news, our Christmas tree is up YEAYYYYY! It really is beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Have a happy Monday,
See you tomorrow

Advent Challenge Day Fourteen...

... Favourite Christmas Colour(s)



This one was a tricky one to think of an idea for. So, I decided to do a design of one of my fave Christmassy items and I love rich reds, gingerbread browns and white together.  

I've been pinning some of my favourite festive things over on pinterest and this is the colour combo I keep noticing. 


Have a happy Sunday, 
See you tomorrow

Advent Challenge Day Thirteen...

...Pear Tree



Day 13 - unlucky for some, today brings another fight with my sewing machine, I've worked out it's the new thread I've bought that is snarling up my machine! That will teach me for thinking I got a bargain, I need to do a search into quality threads! 

Anywhoo, have a lovely Saturday, I think I'll be putting our Christmas tree up today (YEAY!) 

See you tomorrow,
