Happy *selfie*sewn Christmas!

In case I don't make it back here 
I just want to thank everyone
for sharing my world this year.
 I am very much looking forward to a fresh new year
of quilting and painting.
So I will leave you now with a shot of my new stockings
my last make of 2013.
(I know the pom poms are still pinned on!) 
 Wishing you all a 
Merry Christmas
love Clare
ps. (cos there's always a ps.)
I made my own pom-poms the old fashioned cardboard way
please Santa could I have a pom-pom maker* for next year?
thank you x
* as seen on Kirsties Crafty Home Christmas
** polka dot hairband was £1.50 from a cheapy shop.
started off as a joke, but I quite like it now!!


  1. Hahaha i was just watching Kristy rave about pom pom makers on tv! Your tree and fireplace look beautiful. Merry Christmas Clare! P.s. Loving the headband too x

  2. Merry Christmas Clare! I love your stockings and you have the best Pom-poms! Hehe! Let me know if you don't get your Pom Pom maker....I think I might know where to pick one up! Xomary

  3. Happy Christmas Clare, love your stockings and the hair band is very pretty on you. I've been a big Alice band wearer in the past, but I fear I'm rather too old for them now.
    Your tree looks very pretty too and I'm loving the twelve days of Christmas card on your stove.
