Hi.. how are your Christmas preparations going?
It's going to be a white Christmas here, coastal white, that is.
Trying not to get caught up in the madness, aiming to keep it simple, natural, calm & relaxed. That's the plan anyway!
Christmas time means white hydrangeas
white shells with silver
Some simple stockings that were quick & easy to make. I used tea towels I bought a while ago, just for the beautiful fabric. Thought I'd think of something to make with them one day.
I drew a pattern with chalk onto brown paper.
Folded the tea towel.
Cut the stocking with the back on the fold.
Pinned & sewed together.
No sewing needed on the top edge and back.
I sewed a piece of string to the top of each to hang.
Only 15 days to go
What beautiful decorations! xReplyDelete
