With the Comfort Circle of the do.Good Stitches bee (the charity bee I'm in) we had a Xmas swap. We each handmade a decoration for one of the other bee members. It was a fun swap!
This is what I made for Alexandra who lives in France. It is a Christmas house from a pattern from the Wee Wonderfuls book by Hillary Lang. The original pattern isn't Christmassy, but it is easy to adjust to any theme.
I also received a lovely package. Sarah from Great Britain cross-stitched me a very pretty Santa ornament with shiny beads.
When I was making the house for Alexandra I also made one for myself. Sometimes it is just as easy to make two of something as making one, and this way it's also easier to part with something you really like and put a lot of work into ;)
Happy holidays everyone!!
