Christmas in July

Christmas is such a special time of year that I love to make Christmas craft items all year round. At Christmas there is too little time so I prefer to make them at my leisure throughout the year. My latest finish is this gingerbread man ornie from Isabelle Haccourt-Vautier's gorgeous book. With 70 beautiful charts it is difficult to decide what to work next.

Here are some Cross stitch Christmas cards I have stitched, I like to make enough cards each year without having to buy any and finally a mini book/Christmas card containing my favourite photos of "the boys". I made two of these - one for ourselves and one for my mother-in-law.
