Right now my life seems to be in a place where I don't find time to stitch as much as I would like : (
I am part of a great Swedish community of Christmas blogs and for us the run-up to Christmas 2015 has already kicked off so running my Swedish Christmas blog takes up a lot of time . Then I also have my Swedish day-to-day blog where I write updates every day . Then I'm also trying to keep up with all my various favorite blogs , as well as finding time to start this year's Christmas planning . Luckily my lovely sister has gifted me two lovely handmade books to help keep track of everything Christmas! First I received this stunning Christmas notebook/diary . . .
. . . that she made for me ! It is absolutely gorgeous and you can see more pictures of it in THIS post : )
Then she also made a new beautiful Christmas Planner for me . . .
. . . that I cannot wait to use A LOT in the coming months : )
I have found time to do a few more Xmas tags (designed by Fiona Crouch) . You may remember that I did some where I stitched with red thread on white aida , but now I have done some where I used red aida and white thread . . .
. . . and I really like the look of these : ) I just love the little Xmas charts too - so easy and quick to stitch ! Absolutely perfect to stitch when time is short : )
My red and white Xmas picture is also coming along slowly . . .
. . . but I have to order some more red thread before I can finish this one .
Today I guess I could have sat down with some stitching , but I had an itch to do some match box decorating instead :
These will be perfect for small gifts around Christmas : )
The last time I did something like this was last autumn so it took me a while to find my creative juices again but I'm quite pleased with how my decorated match boxes turned out in the end : )
Although I really should be stitching as often as I can (plenty of stitched Xmas gift projects waiting for my attention), it is really nice to switch it up with another kind of craft every now and then : )
Happy stitching and crafting!
