Dare I mention the Christmas word?

I have been embroidering linen handkerchiefs  for my Christmas cards (just the right size), I can scan in my embroidery's and then print them out onto tea stained card stock add some glitter and I have some personal hand made cards. I thought you may like to try this idea for yourselves, hence why I am mentioning the C word a little bit early...to give you some time xxx












It is nice to mess about with paper now and again, I am up to my eyes in Workshop inductions, new students and fabric at Uni, so to come home and play is a good unwinder.
Love and hugs
Lynn xxxx.

Hi Lynn,
I don't think it's ever too early to mention the ' C ' word although I'm not usually so organised as I am this year. I have bought all of my 'C ' pressies except for husband, our children and grandchildren and, I have got paper, muslin ribbon and lots of ideas for wrapping and my own ' C ' cards !!!!!
Love your emboidery and that little pattern coat is wonderful. You are always SO inspirational Lynn.
Happy Sunday to you and yours. XXXX

Wish I could come by and play, Lynn! :)

It takes time to make handmade gifts and yours are lovely. So mentioning the 'C' word is most welcome.

Have a beautiful day.
xo,
Lin

I have started to mention the C word too. I can't believe the year has flown by so quickly. Your idea is beautiful, love the red stitches. Look forward to seeing the finished cards. Jayne

Hello magic star touched lady.
Lovely ideas as always - you are certainly a clever girl.
Albert is doing well but refuses to speak in French other than the odd " Bpnjour" to visitors.

A surprise package will be winging its way to you very soon.

Love and hugs as always.

Such loveliness! I myself got the first scent of "the Christmas spirit" just the other day. It's my favourite holiday, and you have inspired me to start thinking of how I can begin preparing even now.

Love the sweet Peter Pan color on the wee coat pattern. The addition of the buttons brings it to life.
