My stitching marathon continues. This week I managed to finish off my cross stitched NOEL decoration by sewing on some red berry-resembling seed beads :)
and this is what it looks like when all the pieces are strung together on a cord:
The decoration will prolly end up as a part of mantlepiece decoration. So happy to see it finished. Ticked off on my list and now time to move on to another project. Some work has been done on this one this week, yet a lot to go :)
This is going to be a Scandinavian christmas tree with sampler features, monochromatic, made into a framed picture. Another thing to live on the mantlepiece :) (Gosh, I do need a huuuge mantlepiece this year!!) Hoping to see it finished soon!
In the meantime a new project has started :)
A freebie from CrossStitcher magazine :) Fell in love instantly with those adorable cross stitched houses :) Had to have them!
Baking -wise, I had a quick play with ready-made puff pastry sometime during the week and made some lattice pastries with Bramley apple sauce and cinnamon and with spiced plum jam :) Perfect for the autumn evenings, aren't they?
They didn't stay very long though! I love spiced food far too much to let it go stale :P
Sorry, no lattices left now so I'm inviting you to a treat - some proper good British tea in a British mug from a British teapot and some British toffee apple cake :D How much I love all that fuss about tea drinking! :) Do you not? The Keep Calm and Carry On mug has been a spontaneous gift from my boyfriend. He knows too well I like the Best of British ;) even though I'm not the one ;)
Matrioshkas were a gift from him too! I love this folky charm!
