so this is Christmas

It's getting quite Christmassy in the Flickr Embroidery Pool.

Detail from a Christmas themed doiley stitched by Drewzel. The pattern was sourced from Floresita's embroidery transfers blog.

This gorgeous apron technically isn't a christmas apron, but coincidently the colours are just right! Krakencraft stitched this.

Christmas is so cold in some parts it's blue! This little felt tree has been embroidered by Sunny days here

Crafty Bean has been busy making these ornaments for a swap. Aren't they gorgeous!

Great inspiration - and there's still plenty of time to make things for Christmas!

things that make me happy...

I'm back from vacation, and all the gray, drippy, icy weather in the world can't distract me from the cuteness I found in the pool! So here, in no particular order, are things that make me feel happy when it's cold outside:

wearing fluffy red scarves:
snowflake scarf

that soon, it will be 2008:
order 1

vintage cards like this one:
girl and flowers

mittens, especially, mini mittens:
Mini Mitten Magnets

Today's holiday happiness was made possible by the following Flickr embroiderers:
Merwing's scarf (be sure to visit her shop and read her book)
nanceejoo's tea towel
drewzel's card-inspired embroidery
sewcrewel's mittens
