Christmas ornies for pressies

Here are the Christmas ornies I stitched for friends.. all arrived except for a couple of over seas friends, but they don't blog so quite safe to show these now.
I loved stitching them all and doing different ones for each friend.
Stitching progress is good because I am determined to finish my Rosewood Spring Quaker before Christmas or at least before 31st Dec as I have a new large stitching project for 2012.
I also have some socks to finish for Dh and he has said he'd like a scarf.. so I will crochet his in just double crochet, navy and wine colours with a cream stripe.. so keeping busy all the time.
Hope everyone like us has been caught up in the Christmas spirit, we have an Advent Candle which nearly did all 25 numbers when we forgot we had lit it on the very first night, even though it was there right in front of us!! And a  lovely little Musical Tree with little numbered drawers, each one having a little decoration to hang on the tree. We take turns to open the drawers, so there is no fighting over whose turn it is, after all we are adults. We have also bought a very red sequined table runner with matching napkins for the table on Christmas day?!!! Oooo it is getting exciting!
Happy days and happy stitching.
Chris xx
