Avent in cross stitch
Getting stuck into a project that I have thought joyfully about the past couple of Christmas's. A cross stitch Advent stocking.
Mum taught me how to cross stitch, with careful references to the revered cross stitchers in our family and close friends (Great Granny and also Wendy, Mum's best friend who passed away after fighting cancer).
As usual, the desired has been fired by a blog post by Soule Mamma back in 2007.
I have been collecting little trinkets and I will also make bits and pieces for the kids to open each day leading up to Christmas. In previous years I have simply made an Advent activity calendar in envelopes. I also spotted an great dead bush for our Christmas tree this year too.
I am looking forward to having a house with more space in it to enjoy Christmas this year (hopefully!)
