Is it Christmas yet?

Last weekend we put our tree up, along with a wee Christmas table.

The bits that were snipped or sawed off the tree were put to good decorative use.

This year we’ve also got Christmas stockings – I’ve never had a stocking before, so I’m very excited 🙂
I love the fabric, which is from Makower’s “Scandi Christmas 2” range, and the stocking pattern and tutorial is from Falling Flakes. The quilting isn’t obvious in this photo, but I’m really pleased that I’m getting better at both straight and free motion quilting, and I’m particularly thrilled by the addition of fur trim in ‘polar bear white’ (a great idea from Gareth which I was almost too afraid to try!).

As always, we have some new baubles this year,

and some old favourites.

We’ve both been beset by very un-Christmassy flu through the week, so we’re admiring our tree while recuperating, and looking forward to a nice break over Christmas.

I hope all your Christmas plans are going well too!
