I used various Cottage Garden threads and the designs are by Gail Pan, my favourite stitchery designer.
This candle mat project was adapted from a free pattern on Gail's blog last year.
It was time to decorate our Christmas tree on the weekend, Hannah is becoming quite the expert in hanging all our special ornaments. I keep saying that we must get a bigger tree - next year will be the year for sure because Hannah is almost taller than the tree now!
I just love opening up the Christmas boxes and rediscovering the ornaments and other decorations that I've come to really treasure over the years, whether they are handmade, or have been given by a friend or family member, or that are new for the year.
See you soon x
