December Smalls

I haven’t got round to decorating the house for Christmas yet, but I did rummage through the Christmas boxes to find all my Christmas cross-stitch smalls…

Christmas Smalls

It makes a nice gentle start to the decorations!

Quite a few of these are Faby Reilly designs, I did a Christmas stitch-a-long last year to make four Christmas cards, I turned the designs into smalls instead, I gave one as a present but I kept the other three…

There’s also two of Faby’s cross-stitch humbugs which I made two or three years ago…

The little gingerbread mouse by Just Nan was finished a couple of weeks ago…

The mistletoe card I think was a kit from Hobbycraft and the dachshund was a pattern off Etsy. The little house is by Nutmeg Designs and the wreath is one I made years ago.

They make quite a nice collection, but I think a few might be disappearing onto my Christmas tree when we get round to decorating it!

About craftycreeky

I live in a busy market town in Yorkshire with my husband, kids, dogs and chickens. I love trying new crafts, rediscovering old ones, gardening, walking...anything creative really I started this blog after my New Year resolution worked so well. My resolution (the first one I've ever kept!) was to post a photograph of my garden on Facebook every day. My hope was that I would then see what was good in the garden and not just weeds and work, which was my tendency. The unexpected side-effect was that I have enjoyed many more hours in the garden. I am hoping that 'The Crafty Creek' will have the same effect. Happy creating!

    We have lots of handmade ornaments as well…some made by me and some by my friends. Treasured memories. So fun to unpack each year and decorate!

    Hello Margaret, what a lovely collection of December smalls. Making smalls and cards is something I keep promising myself to do, but there’s always something else to attend to. At the moment I’ve got repairs to my husbands denim jacket hanging over my head, something like this can stall me for weeks. I hate doing repairs but once they are finally done I do appreciate my work. Regards Mandy xx
