Merry Christmas (and this months GG for Jo)

We plan for Christmas for ages.  Crafters start making things months before the man in red appears.  Some even work on ornaments all year round to try and avoid the last minute rush.
I started the year with good intentions and made a few ornaments which you have all seen, they've been gifted to friends and family.
This final little easy one went off in an envelope last week.
The four seasons was a SAL that I joined and did manage to keep up with.  I chose the PS designs from the Gift of Stitching magazine. 
Winter stitched and finally made up.

It joins the other 3 to complete the set.

A friend asked if I could make a pair of socks for her if she supplied the wool.  

It's a good job I made a start on them when she asked and got them finished in plenty of time as I've been nursing the mother of all colds for the past week and been bedbound.  There's been no Christmas preparations here this week, this year we'll be winging it.......
Just time to wish you all a very Merry Christmas, hope you have a good one, before I head back to bed with a warm drink.

Love and blessings
Julie x
I'm sure you all know what Gifted Gorgeousness is all about - but just in case you don't ....

It is a chance for us bloggers to show off gifts we have given or received.  It could be yarn, a thread, a piece of fabric or something that's not for crafting but was sent/given to brighten your day. 

You can read more about 'GG' here.  It's the brainchild of Jo at Serendipitous Stitching

  4. Nice to see all your stitching! Love the socks ..... you are clever! (One day I might finish some of the knitting I’ve started!)
    I hope you have a good night’s sleep, so that your cold disappears for tomorrow and you are able to enjoy the Christmas festivities!
    Hugs, Barbara xx

  5. Oh Julie, I feel for you - it's such a bad time to be unwell when there is so much to do. I'm currently nursing hubby on chemo, my son with this dreadful virus and my mum in hospital. I just hope I manage to stay clear of all the nasty germs doing the rounds. Try to have a good day tomorrow and take plenty of rest.

  6. Merry Christmas! Lovely ornaments and socks.

  7. Merry Christmas Julie! I am sorry you have a nasty cold. Those socks are fab. Your four seasons are truly great!

  8. No fun being sick for the holidays! Try to have a merry Christmas anyway! Feel better soon!

  9. Oh Julie, so sorry that you have caught a cold, particularly at this time of the year.
    Very nice Prairie Schooler ornaments that you stitched over the year. I always love seasonal motifs and these are so sweet.
    Merry Christmas and hopefully you will soon feel better.

  10. Merry Christmas to you! It's no fun being sick over the holidays. My husband is currently curled up in bed with a cold, too. Your GG post is filled with loveliness, especially those great rainbow socks!

  11. Boy a lot of people have illnesses right now. Hope you get over it quickly. Your ornaments look fantastic. Love the seasonal ones. The socks look very warm.

  12. I'm sorry you have been unwell, Julie. Hopefully, you are feeling better. You did a lovely job on your ornaments! And those socks are so pretty!

  13. Sorry to hear you've had a cold Julie, I hope you are feeling better now.
    Those socks are certainly colourful.
    Happy New Year
