And the Stockings were Hung

The Christmas decorating is continuing. Thought you might like to see some more lovely handmade gifts from friends and swaps -

They look so lovely together and about to go up.
I just had to show you this one as well. I stitched this one 3 or 4 years ago and just love it. This is only half it's size and is one of Viv's Creations lovely patterns. 

Now I'd forgotten (well not really because I'm stitching one) to show you my purchases from our local quilt show a couple of weeks ago. Not only was there lots of gorgeous quilts, but four lovely shops as well, including one with thousands of antique buttons. 

I couldn't resist this lovely bundle of red fabrics or the lovely new wool from The Quilted Crow girls. Would have loved the red wool also but they had sold out. And then because I love xmas I had to have this new Rosalie Quinlan pattern (sorry didn't realise the light had reflected off the photo). It is stitched in various cosmo threads, but I'm stitching mine in DMC equivalent.  Cheryl
