It's very busy times for me over here in Sweden right now:) On Sunday I'm having my annual Xmas get-together for friends and family so I'm spending my days with Xmas baking, Xmas decorating and lots of household chores in order for everything to be ready for Sunday.
Sadly that means that I have had very little time for stitching in the last week or so, and I miss it. I have made a promise to myself though, that next week I'm going to spend lots of time stitching and resting before it is time to start preparing all the festive foods for Xmas.
I have managed to do a little bit of stitching and crafting though. Firstly I have put up my Swedish Santa on my livingroom wall.
I just used some thick felt as a backing but it turned out fine I think. It feels great to finally be able to enjoy this picture:)
Then I finished a Xmas stocking I made for my sister:) We exchanged stockings this year and when I saw this chart in Cross Stitcher...
...it seemed perfect for a stocking. And this is what it looked like finished!
I'm really pleased with how it turned out and I hope it will look great at my sister's:))
I have also made some Xmas crochet potholders...
...as Xmas gifts, although I haven't finished off the loose threads yet...!As you may know by now, GOD JUL means Merry Xmas in Swedish:)
Hopefully I can be back with some more stitching progress next week!
