Hello everyone and welcome! It's the 15th of December and my turn to open a door on Jo's Advent Calendar...
Let's have a look what's inside...
My first ever ornament finish!
This is Snowy Birds by Country Cottage Needleworks from last year's JCS Christmas issue. I was pretty pleased with how this turned out! I haven't made many ornaments since and this is still my favourite.
I have lots of things waiting to be finished though!
Jo has asked everyone taking part in the blog hop to blog about our best ever Christmas present. The one that sticks out in my memory was one I received from my parents in 1983 when I was 11...my very own record player! It had a turntable and a needle which jumped if you tried to dance near it (if you are under the age of 35 and don't know what I'm talking about, please ask a grown up).
It seemed magical to me that I could choose what music to listen to rather than waiting for my favourites to be played on my parents' radio.
Unfortunately the only disc I received from Santa that year was Cliff Richard's 25th anniversary LP but it wasn't long until the shops opened again after the Christmas break and I was able to spend my voucher on a Wham album!
I wish you all a very happy Christmas.
