show and tell and some freebies

May I introduce you to Pete the Bear.....

He is soft, cuddly and baby proof.    I met him over here

Here's another dainty x-stitch  - this time from Luli.  Be sure
to have a look at how she finished hers - that girl
is some creative!

This is my favourite Christmas quote.  I stitched it
on a piece of drop cloth and left the edges raw - they should
fray nicely with time.  It was a freebie

I really like the Scandinavian/Nordic Christmas designs so I  stitched a red snowflake  on some white twill for my version.

I made this candle mat for a gift.  The redwork
stitchery is from Val Laird; the wee piece of
fabric is what I used for the backing. 

This is the handmade card my kid sister sent me for my birthday
 - I love it!

 Claire offered some cute 'Tis the Season' designs and this
is one of them.  I stitched it on perforated paper and backed it with white felt.

There's a party going on here.

How great ! I wanted to finish my Margaret Sherry Xmas exchange like you did with the Luli piece but didn't find such a small wreath...I then used felt, but yours is really too beautiful
all those ornaments are very sweet, but my heart goes to the candle mat =)
I'm happy because I have Christmas in my heart so there will surely be one gift or two under the tree =D
big big hugs
PS : I also love that expression...'baby proof' =D
It really makes me laugh =)
