Following on from Clare Youngs book of needlecraft, Eleanor has tried stitching her own design from her story onto fabric.
She drew her little gingerbread house on with pencil.
Then used simple backstitch.
She tried a few other stitches, and decided that the whipped backstitch would make a good candy cane, so she is now trying it out. I'll post the finished article soon.
Also I thought I'd show you a little Christmas scene, showing a new family member Tinsel and the puppy safe front room.
Shhhhh, she may look sweet but she's full of mischief, and I really have to get on with some Christmas shopping!
Byeee for now.
