it's beginning to look alot like Christmas
Things are getting busy here at nellie dean towers. Web orders, Facebook orders and a big shop order to complete. Exciting times indeed! I appreciate all of them, so thank you.
These personalised Christmas stockings were a big hit last year. I loved stitching each one, taking customer comments into account to ensure that they were what the customer had in mind. Each one features a mixture of new and vintage glass buttons, hand embroidery, applique, cotton tape and trims. Not to mention a fab selection of vintage, upcycled and new fabrics from my stash. Each one is entirely unique and, I hope, made to treasure for years to come.
My son is 6 and at this age his drawings are super cute. I thought it would be lovely to have a way of preserving them so I transferred the image to fabric and stitched over it. Hey presto, one unique Christmas tree decoration! You just have to love a snowman with big slitty eyes.
OK, it is Sunday night and the usual round of homework, reading and uniforms beckons. I hope you have enjoyed me sharing some of my Christmas goodies with you. If you are interested in buying some of them, they are available on my website
