Skin of my teeth!

So on the evening before 1 December I finished my Advent Calender!  Maybe I should have started it a bit earlier but now its done.  I only have 3 ornament so I shall be doing them as we carry on, both the girls birthdays are in December so I think I will make a present with their initial on for their respective birthdays.  We already have a calender which we put little chocolates and they alternate days so they get the chocolate on their birthday so this will run alongside that one and they can alternate the ornaments.  

Neat blanket stitch 

Lovely tree shape


My first set of ornaments!  Need to get moving!

I'm really pleased with how its come out and the kids love it.  I hope that it will give them great joy over the coming years and even to their own children.....  I've embroidered my name and date on the back so my girls can't pass it off as theirs!!!!

I shall be linking up with all these lovely link parties this week
