Christmas is coming early this year

I don`t know why, but suddenly I feel like it`s not such a bad thing to get organized and prepare my christmas presents/decorations now instead of a couple of days before Christmas Eve... It`s a strange feeling, knowing that I`ve got plenty of time to do it. Strange but pleasant! :-)

Here`s a Christmas decoration that I made the other day, mainly as an experiment since I haven`t used the sewing machine for years.

These are so sweet! I love plain red stockings! Is the material felt? What kind of stitching is at the top? It looks metallic....very simple and pretty. Christmas decorations are so much fun.

Those stockings are adorable! I hope to do some gingerbread decorations this year. I love the idea of edible decorations, I'm not sure how long they'll last on the tree though, especially seeing as we've got a Very Hungry Dog!

Kansasrose, yes it`s felt & I`ve just added some glitter on the top.

Natasha, I love gingerbread decorations! Do you have a blog?

Ooohh honey I love those stockings. Make sure you keep posting your 'crafty' creations. For someone who hasn't used a machine in years your work is just great!!

Den syns jeg ble veldig fin, og veldig "julete" med glitter og det hele. Søtt! :o) God Jul! ;o)

Så söta! Men du, ska man byta till att länka hit? Jag fick för mig att denna var tillfällig? Fast den är ju väldigt fin bloggen. :)

Så flink du er da:) De var kjempe søte.
Veldig greit å gjøre slike ting nå, og ikke rett før jul, da har man ofte andre ting å gjøre også.
WE LOVE CHRISTMAS

Homemade decorations are the best!...very lovely! Your new layout looks great, especially nice to have the categories. I've been considering beta, was the switch difficult?
