Owls, Christmas Cards and Friends.

Tonia Pappan has been having a Christmas Party at OakHaven Designs Group.  She has been giving away Christmas designs to member, but for one day only.  I could not resist stitching the 3rd gift, which was given out on my birthday.  And you can see now why I loved it so much - Owls!

This design was the 3rd Gift at the Christmas Party. It's not available now.


I have received another Birthday gift from my dear friend Jan, who also knows that I love owls.

"Bags of Character" for the National Trust.
Inside this little owl storage pouch is a handy lightweight tote bag, which you can clip onto your handbag or keys.  Such a handy gift to have around.  Thank you so much Jan.  


I have received a lovely cross stitch Christmas Card from my dear friend Mary Grace in Malta.  In fact I also have last years on display as well.  Thank you so much Mary Grace.

"Snowman" 2011.

"Santa" 2010

It was only last month Mary Grace had her birthday and I sent her a little gift, which she stitched up in no time for her Christmas tree.  It's so cute!

A Joan Elliot design.


I have another friend Jayne who love Meerkats.  So I stitched her a Hobbycraft kit by Mouseloft of two Meerkats, waiting for Santa.  I'm sure she will love it.

Here's a close up of the meerkats.

Well, I hope you are now ready for Christmas, it's not long now.  It's only a week to go!!

Have a lovely week-end.

Happy Stitching Everyone

So many cute things! My mum loves owls so I love seeing all your owl stuff, and I adore that meerkat design!
I'm lucky, I'm obsessed with penguins, so it's always easy to find penguin designs, especially at Christmas!
