I hope that everyone of you had a wonderful Christmas. Our's was a nice day spent with family. Just a very nice and relaxing day!
The picture above is all the pretty pinkness that I received in a swap from my friend Lorena of Rose Chic Friends. She paints the most beautiful roses and also make roses out of clay. So pretty, thank you Lorena!

The picture above is a gift from my friend Steph of Angelic Accents. Below is a closeup of all my pinkness from Steph. The little tree is made from felt and that is one of my favorite things. Felt just tugs at my heart! A little cross stitch teapot and the most beautiful teacup, saucer and cake plate. Thank you so much Steph I love it all and treasure our friendship!
Below is the gift that I made for Lorena in our swap, it's not pink but I thought Iwould show you some of the things that I made during the holidays. Lorena decorates some of her rooms in red and green so I embroidered this tea towel and sachet for her. Also I made her a little Christmas banner using an old vintage post card.

Close up of the little bird peeking out of her nest.
A pretty little brooch that I made from yoyo's, then pinned it to a copy of a vintage postcard.
This Victorian stocking that I made (pictured below), I first made back in 1975 for my Mother. The girl that I made this for loved Victorian and I thought this would go so nice in her home.
A little bit of Christmas next to my couch where I sit when I find the time to relax and read or stitch.
A few pics of my Christmas tree.
I put our tree in our foyer in front of the staircase so you can see all sides of the tree. Our staircase is being replaced now with oak and is not done yet.
