As the song from Gilmore Girls says “So welcome to my little corner of the world”. It’s all about me and my crafting – focusing around my love for stitching and sewing along with anything else that catches my eye. So welcome, grab a coffee and happy reading.

Online Advent Calendar

This year I have joined in with Jo's Online Advent calendar. This is a bit of a new experience for me but it's been great fun to read lots of new blogs and you never know I might  even have a new follower or two.

These are my favourite decorations I have stitched for me. They were one of my first stitching projects I ever did from a magazine too. They were in a cross stitcher about 6 or 7 years ago. They are part of a set of 7 and one day I'll stitch the rest!

Jo's theme this year is Stocking, Sack or Something else... Being me I have to throw a spanner in the works and we use all 3!!!

The children each have a stocking, this year I made them new ones too as a friend asked me to make ones for her children. So far I've made 9 ones in varying sizes with plans for 5 more! (yes before Christmas). they hang the stockings on the door handles and usually sit on our bed in the morning to open them. Last year I woke them  up at 7am as I couldn't contain my excitment any longer! The children have sacks at my Mum's with all their presents from her in, I made them very small one each with Mr and Little Miss Christmas on them. I don't put much in them, just odds and ends. We also have presents under the tree too and this is where the majority go. This has continued on from when I was a child, and I'm sure my stocking are at my mums somewhere!

So Jo, I've not idea which group I'm going to fall into, I'll leave the decision to you!!!

But here they are all hung round the fireplace and under the tree are the two Mr Men sacks waiting to be filled along with a few presents too.

You can see all of the doors on the Advent Calendar here

Well time for me to brave Tesco, finish the last of the stockings oh and best I wrap a present or 50 whilst I watch Strictly tonight!!!

Merry Christmas everyone!!!!
