Happy New Year

These are some lovely gifts I have received, I love them so much they're gorgeous and were all surprises which made them better.

Thank-you very much to my Gran for making this gift just before Christmas. My Stocking is so brilliant and has lots of charms on it, my brother got one as well. My Gran put bells on them too. This is really special and holds a lot of presents LOL it is by Shepherds Bush. I am going get a better picture of this on here as soon as I can as you can't really tell what it is like and the lovely colours.




I entered a contest on Annemaries blog to help name her needlecase thingy, somebody else won but because I did a lot of names and worked hard on thinking them up, I got a gift too. Isn't she very kind to do that for me :) I like this picture as it shows the pale blue background colour of the linen.

The Front with our names and year on it


The Back says Merry Christmas in 5 different languages!!


This ornament is from Colette and is very pretty, it is not stitched but VERY lovely anyway. It has soft brown velvet on the back and different colour beads which are my favourite colours. My Mum tells me the colours I like are soft autumn ones. I wanted this on the tree we had on our table right over Christmas and New Year so I could see it all the time. It looked lovely, it was pointing towards me //..\\ Now I am going to put it into my bedroom.




Thank-you very much for these beautiful gifts , I got a thread like lots of other ladies from Secret Blogging Santa in the colour 'Santa Red'.




I also have got a lovely pack , so did my brother, of goodies from Leena who sent my Mum an exchange.





I appreciate all of you giving them to me xoxoxo I know I am very lucky and I know how long things take to make.

Hi Amy,

The stocking your grandmother made for you is beautiful! I also love all the charms and bells. They make it so special.

The little ornament of the man pulling the tree is wonderful - so Scandinavian looking.

And, the third one? Like you I think it is magnificent. Isn't Colette so clever to make the beaded trim. It is gorgeous!

Wow Amy,
What lovely presents you received this Christmas. The stocking your Gran made will be something you can keep forever, it is sooo beautiful. I love your ornament from Annemarie too, how nice to see Merry Christmas in so many different languages. The pretty little ornament from Colette is so unusual and doesn't have to be put away but can be enjoyed all year round. Talking of enjoying, I bet you and your bro enjoyed the treats from Leena.

I hope you have a really happy 2008and do lots more stitching and blogging. I really enjoy paying you a visit :>)
Best wishes, Angela (a good friend of your Auntie Su's :>)
