I'm Dreaming of an Orange Christmas

Here's what I have been stitching these last couple of days. First off some postcards for a My Favourite colour swap. Ok so if you are a regular visitor here it will come as no surprise that my cards are orange :)
This is quite a big swap and so far I've made about half of the cards that I need, it's taking sometime but I don't mind working with orange always makes me smile.

Last night was the embroiderers guild meeting and we had a sewing evening. We all made little tree ornaments, all stitched by hand, a couple of corners on my turned out a bit wonky but I still think it's cute. I just need to add a bit of ribbon and then grapple the tree out of the attic to add my decoration to! I've also been working a few Christmas cards, I've left it way too late to make all of mine handmade this year but I am doing a few for family and friends, hopefully I will have them finished and ready to share by the weekend.

what a beautiful assortment of oranges -- the rick rack really sets off the postcard design. :-)

I like the orange card in your blog post. Thanks for the confetti one that you sent me, which I received earlier in the week which was quite unexpected amongst the christmas cards in the post. A lovely surprise.

Have a good Christmas
