WOYWW....

Here we are at the last Wednesday before the big day!!!  If you're not ready now then don't worry cos it will come and go without all the stress.  My last bit of crafting is on my desk to share with you today...

You will all have seen the little hand dumfed reindeer that I made last week.  As soon as I had made him Shell said she would love him to hang on her tree but I felt he was too big to go on a tree so I put Rudolph over in the blog shop, where he sold the same day and he is now happy in his new home down in Cornwall.  Of course I wouldn't let Shell down so I set to and made her a smaller version with a hanging loop :-)  ....cute or what?

Each year I try to make a new little something for each of my little Grandchildren to hang on their trees and this year I thought I'd make reindeer.  I made a paper pattern that I stitched round on the machine,  I cut these out and stuffed them and added antlers and a hanging loop.  A little heart shaped nose and a couple of beads for eyes and hey presto.  :-)
Easy peasy.


Now that just leaves me to wish each and every one of you a wonderful Christmas and to thank you for another wonderful year of love and support through the good times....and bad.  Let's hope 2013 comes with good health and much happiness for you all.
Hugs,
Annie x
