It May Be Spring Time But

It may be spring time but there is a lot of holiday magic going on here.

I have been busy working on some cross-stitch Christmas cards. With 4 in the set, I’ve got 3 completed. I think I like the Santa the most, although the candy canes are cute and I can hear the church bells ringing with this sweet bell.

You may notice on the bell there’s a green border. I had accidentally trimmed one side to short when prepping it. To fix it, I found some green material and added it to both sides. You’d never know πŸ™‚

Nothing like a tea towel for gift giving. I bought some new transfer patterns at the beginning of the year. I really love this one. I like adding red potholders or those holiday boxed tea bags along with the towel.

I was able to get one more transfer out of this pattern from the year before.

This is a set of 2 of the Happy Hanukkah pattern. This transfer was actually not good for a 2nd try. The pattern did not show well and I am really struggling with seeing and getting her done.

Have you started anything for the holidays yet? Here we are in June and I know, I know I know, I shouldn’t dare say it, the holiday season is just another six months away.

      Thank you Deb! I know, it’s almost comical thinking and doing Christmas crafting. With a daughter, 5 years living in Japan (military) I have learned just how quickly time really passes. With 1 year left, it honestly seems like she & family left yesterday and the last 12 months means they’ll be home tomorrow – if that makes sense πŸ™‚
