Come visit with me as I stitch and craft my way from one Christmas to the next - I like to have Christmas projects close by me all year. I have a particular fondness for Santas and Angels. If you have the time, leave a comment so I know you've visited.

Christmas in the Study

These Santas are sitting on my filing cabinet. My collection of Santa pens is in the Santa mug at front right, and my 3 little Santa erasers are there too.
Here's the right-hand corner of my desk. All the cross stitch here was stitched for me as gifts by my niece Aislinn over the past 5 years. It's hard to see on this photo, but my everyday pens are sitting in a Santa mug.

This gorgeous pair are made from 2 litre bleach bottles, and they sit by the filing cabinet guarding the doorway to the downstairs loo. I bought them from the maker at a local market 20 yrs ago.

How long does it take you to decorate your house. I am just amazed at what you have done.

This year it took me just one week, which is the quickest I've ever been. It's almost like moving house twice each year - just 6 weeks apart. Last year it took nearly 3 weeks, that's why I started a bit earlier this year. It takes me less than a week to take everything down and return the house to its normal state - I always have that done before New Years Day.
