I'll admit to being slow to catch onto the Christmas festive lark - both in reality and upon the blog. Nevertheless Christmas to me is just another excuse to get crafty - this year a couple of home made cards, crochet garland (if I ever get around to finishing it) and trying my hand at some beaded ornaments (if I ever find the time) are all on the to do list. If I was far, far more organised than I'll ever be i'd cross stitch far more cards then I did this year, in fact the only one I managed to do was one for the parents.
The design was made up from a vintage Christmas Village Sampler sewn upon some linen, a back stitched Merry Christmas added to the bottom all thriftly made from odds and ends I already had in stock.
Letters, postcards and card writing all seem to be a dying form, hopefully they don't die when it comes to Christmas Cards any time soon, it would certainly be a shame if they did.
Are you getting your craft on for Christmas?
