Merry Christmas...

 
Another year has flown by and it's time for me to wish all of you a Happy and Healthy Christmas.

Christmas can be a time of cheer, but also a time of stress for some of us.  Do make sure you don't overdo things, take your time, and enjoy yourself too.  Keep up with some relaxation and exercise, and if sewing is a stress buster, make sure you do a little bit when you can.  You are important too :).

The little decoration in the photo is one I made some years ago.  It is a foam cone covered with buttons, beads and beads - sparkly things I was never going to use.  It's now sat on our mantelpiece every Xmas for nearly ten years. It's getting a bit careworn (like me) but with a few repairs now and again, will probably last another ten years.  The base is a wooden bangle, found in an Op Shop (thrift shop).

A close up shows what I did - it took hours to glue these bits and pieces on:


That's it from me for the next few days - take care everyone,

Sarah Liz
