Tis the Season to Get Creating

Just thought I should say a thank you to everyone that still comes to this blog. Its amazing you do.

I have not posted in such a long time. I am currently getting into the Christmas festive season and have even got back to the sewing machine and some crafts. I want to make a stocking this christmas for a friend and thought I would base the stocking on one I made 5 years ago,  you can see it in my November 2007 post ( see the side bar). I cannot believe it was 5 years ago ... thats terrible, only seems like yesterday.  I also want to recreate this banner above, both the banner and stocking were given away to complete strangers in a swap. I used to do that sort of thing all the time, spend hours on them and make them just beautiful and then promise myself I would make the same thing for myself. Well I never did. So this year I am going to do this banner and a stocking. You can see my cute vintage flower fairy made by Niki of Nostalgia,  see her in my favs list ( she is one of my all time fav blogger and doll makers, I have quite a few of her masterpieces ).

I'll get on and create and get back to you shortly .... and thats a promise. x

What an adorable banner! I hope you make another one and show us close-ups of it! I also love your gorgeous cupboard full of pretty vintage linens!

Helloooooo Ginny!
Lovely to hear from you - thank you for visiting my blog and giving me the nudge.

Go for it...make banners and stockings and whatever else takes you fancy, all for you! I know how hard you used to work on those swaps...its a shame Blogger is no longer like that...think it got a bit too big, but hey, now you get to look after yourself.

Take care and have fun,
Niki xxx
