Christmas is over.

Unfortunately these pictures are bit blurred, this is a picture of a Fuchsia I made for my mother-in-law for Christmas it was the last one in a series of 8 which I have been doing over the last few years they are from Mary Hickmont magazine New Stitches there is a picture of them all below but I did them separately.

I also bead I don't know if many people have seen the lovely Swaroski crystal rivolis which you can buy and you embezzle them, this one is turned into a necklace for my friend for Christmas.
Here is a picture of the piece I stitched for the Jayne's Attic Christmas Ornament Exchange, I find this a lovely finish for ornaments and doesn't take long to do. I had had to borrow my mothers pinking shears but my Hushand has now bought me a pair as part of my Christmas box. 
I did actually work Christmas and Boxing Day we had 4 babies born on Christmas day spread out over the day so it was a loverly atmosphere at work.
