Christmas around the corner

There are so many Christmas themed patterns for cross stitch on the internet, hard to choose one. I love cross stitching but most of the time I don’t know what to do with the embriodery. Mostly I make it into a pillowcase or tablecloth, this time I was deciding between coasters and hanging decoration. In the end, I made this hanging decoration. I found on the internet beautiful black wire hanger and it was decided.

If I change my mind, I can still use it like coasters, just by cutting the connecting strips.

Many thanks for the free pattern!

Christmas mug rugs – feel the Christmas coming!

Two weeks ago the weather surprised us all in Prague. Snow in October? Well, not that usual. I was travelling home visiting my family in quite light jacket and sneakers. Then I wake up on Sunday morning and what? Am I still dreaming? Is it white outside? Well it was not nightmare, it was true. I must say I don’t like winter. I am cold hater. I would better sweat the whole day that being in cold one hour. In winter I am switching to “bear mode”, I would just get in my hole and sleep and sleep. I don’t like that it is dark when I wake up and that it is dark when I go from work. So as you see, I am the winter-hater.I like just few things about the winter season:

1- Christmas markets
2- When it snows and the fresh snow is holding onto the branches of the trees and it all looks like from a fairy tale (I am inside drinking punch or hot wine)
3- Christmas baking
4- Shining Christmas tree
5- Christmas sour cabbage soup

So despite my negative approach to Christmas, there are few things to be liked. If you don’t go last-minute Christmas shopping for presents, I think it is possible to survive.

Last weekend I got into the Christmas mood. I was sewing from a festive fabric designed by Anni Downs, collection’s name is Christmastime. The panel in this collections is just gorgeous. So cute I couldn’t help it! I made few of these mug rugs, or bigger coasters if you wish. They are available also for sale in my ETSY SHOP. It made me feel the Christmas coming.
