I was sitting in the sun stuffing (pillows-not myself!lol!) and stitching a few seams, when it came to me, I better pop on here today as the rest of the week is hotting up to be very busy!
Again the colours are showing a little brighter than they really are, but I have used a Christmas red instead of my normal barn red.
Just some little pillow tucks, stenciled,
Larger pillows, stenciled on prairie type cloth-excuse the pins but the bottoms are being sewn this afternoon!
I have put out a few little bits of decor for Christmas, simply because we were changing the fireplace in the living room and it just seemed easier when it came to cleaning and dusting the room rather than the everyday stuff.
I got son out with the glue and snowflakes on Saturday and this is what he produced for me. I will try and get some red berry holly nearer to the holidays, but in the meantime this will have to do.
And a closer pic of the fire.....We took out the fireplace and gas fire and put in this wood burning stove and I LOVE it-soooo cosy. This room seldom got used as I never felt comfortable with the gas and we always seemed to migrate to the other room with the wood burning stove in it.
We put a 17th century beam above as you know I needed something to decorate!lol!
These bits are only set up meantime until I get my Christmas lights out.
As I was putting a few Christmas bits out on Saturday, the postman came with a parcel for me! My purchase arrived from Christine (Preferably Prim). Christine does such lovely handwork and x stitched these lovely little pinkeeps on linen and beautifully backed in ticking. Love them Christine and thank you so much for the 'partener'-you are far too good to me! Don't they look fab?
Do you remember these wooden items? I think I got them last Christmas....well, this is the project I have been working at, on my bathroom floor! Excuse the mess but I though I would share. I need a man now to put them up, then the fun part of decorating them:)
Whoops, I better get off this computer before my cherubs come in from the bus, or they will think I do nothing else!lol!
Have a great and safe week,
