I looked at the calendar yesterday, and nearly fainted...it's just eight weeks left to Christmas!...
Now I really must get serious about starting on the Christmas presents and the secret Santa gifts.
I'm in three groups here, which I have to make a secret Santa gift for, and then special friends that I make for.
This is the start of one of the gifts...I think this will be the front of a little hussif.
I'm going to bead all the hand-dyed lace, and work in some SRE flowers in between the cameo and the lace.
The background fabric is a heavy taffeta in a lovely rich plum colour.
Off to do some more stitching..
