2018 Online Advent Calendar

Hello everyone and happy holidays!
Welcome to my door!
Knock on to see what's inside!
This is the Online Advent Calendar made by Jo of Serendipitous Stitching and you can find all of the days in her blog.
This is December 15th and it is my turn to show you what I have stitched this Christmas.
Please come inside.
First I stitched  "All Dolled Up" by Little House Needleworks, a pattern I had won in Kaye's of Kitten Stitching giveaway some time ago.Thanks Kaye. It looks lovely stitched and I put it in a white frame. I also gave the pattern away and the winner is Clare of Aimeteu's Stitching.
I also stitched these felt trees with sequins and beads from my stash and from what I was sent at the Secret Crafter Exchange about which you can read in my GG post tomorrow.
 And this little Christmas Dragon was stitched this Christmas too.
It is December 2015 Holiday Treat by J.L.Aikman-Smith of Dragon Dreams Inc. which you can find for free on their facebook page.This is travelling to a dragon loving stitching friend.
Also Jo asked us our favourite Christmas song and I must say I have many but my all time favourite classic is the 1942 White Christmas with Bing Crosby

But I also love  a song I often teach my children for Christmas.

If you want to follow more on the Advent Calendar today you can also visit Mary's Threads to see what she has stitched.
The next blogs you can go tomorrow are A stitcher's Story and The Flashing Scissors.

This Online Advent Calendar is organised by Jo of Serendipitous stitching. Hop along to see the rest of the days.Thanks Jo for organising this. Have great holidays! Merry Christmas and a happy new year!

Your Christmas stitching is lovely and I think your sequin Christmas trees are beautiful.
Your Christmas song choices are classics.

Happy Christmas.

Thanks for taking part in the Advent Calendar Blog Hop this year. Love the two ornies you shared with us, especially the little dragon!

I also like those felt and sequin trees, they look fun to make.

Thanks for the songs too, I'm really enjoying listening to the choices as I do my posts and leave comments.

Wow, those sequined trees are awesome! I bet they were fun to make, just letting your imagination take over. Bing Crosby versions of carols are such wonderful classics; I love them!

Your Christmas stitching is lovely. I have stitched many of the LHN ornaments and they are all so cute. Love them. I am also very fond of White Christmas by Bing Crosby. Hope you and your family have a blessed and wonderful holiday. RJ@stitchingfriendsforever

Such a sweet stitch, what a fun one to pass along. Your trees are adorable, so nice and colourful. Of course I'm loving the dragon!
White Christmas is always a treasure and I hadn't hear the Snowman one before, that was lovely.

DJ said...

Your stitching is lovely!! And how kind of you to pass that one along! I love White Christmas, though it's been years since I've seen a white Christmas, we can hope can't we? The dragon is adorable, and your felt and sequin trees are lovely! Have a Merry Christmas!!
