Finally, finally, I have uploaded some Christmas goodies onto my website and there will be more to come, but I cannot face any more photography on such a dark, dismally wet day. Many thanks are due to my dear davey who helped me so much with the whole image taking challenge and it truly is such a challenge as our little house is very lacking in the natural light department. So, here are the first of the pipany Christmas range!
The Holly and the Ivy Christmas stocking as pictured at the top - pretty picture Dave - features hand embroidered holly leaves, berries and silvery stars which twinkle slightly as they catch the light. It is made from a cream linen mix and has a soft, fleecy cuff which I have embroidered 'the Holly and the Ivy' across as shown just here...
and here is a detail shot of the leaves where you can just see the delicate silveryness traced trhough the stocking...
So, on now to my Christmas padded hearts which are this year's version of the ones I made for 2007. This year I have based the hearts on the following carols...
In the bleak Mid-winter
Away in a Manger
and last of the three is O Little Town of Bethlehem
Each of the hearts is lightly padded and can be hung on the tree or anywhere else around the house to add a festive touch. They are also available as a collection of three.
So there you have it - a quickly posted blog for something that seems to have taken forever! Hope you like them and here's another picture of the Holly and Ivy Christmas stocking just because. More to follow soon!
Bye for now x
