Our Yearly Ritual

One more sleep until Santa arrives!!!  Hope he doesn't find flying over Australia too hot for him in that heavy suit, we are expecting a sweltering 39 degrees for the big day.

My dear friend Angela and I have again exchanged gifts for the Christmas season and below is what we made for each other.

I gave Angela the Homespun Elegance ornie that I showed in a previous post, as she is a snowman lover I thought this one would be most suited.  I also made her a small pillow with the Primitive Hare's "Sister Stitcher" design.  The large Santa item is actually a wine bottle cover and I also included some other Christmas essentials like stickers, a snowman charm, felt ornies and a hanging silver ornie.

Angela sent me a lovely pinkeep finish, Prairie Schoolers "Songs of the Season" and my ornie this year is a Homespun Elegance design "Festive Redbird".  She also included some fabric, scissors, a PS chart and a little tape measure.  Funny how we both went for a Homespun Elegance design for the ornie!!

Thank you Angela for another great year of friendship.

Merry Christmas to all my dear friends and followers, thank you for visiting with me throughout the year and I look forward to another wonderful year of stitching with you all.
I will leave you with a picture of my tree this year.

Until next time, happy stitching
