advent calander





nothing like a last minute job, and lucky for me i managed to finish our advent calender last night.
i had cut out the linen a few weeks ago, but then they sat on my table till all of a sudden i realised that i needed to get on with it. i was going to embroider the numbers on, but stenciled them due to time restraints ( next year i will embroider as i am not happy with the way the numbers look) i then stitched them all together and yesterday i attached the ribbon loop. this morning before the boys were up i strung them above the fireplace... at this stage i am doing a day at a time.. this morning the boys each got a lindt reindeer chocolate and the card inside read : 'decorate Christmas tree'. now for 23 more ideas......

when John got home tonight Hugo said " look dad, look at our new advent stockings. mummy made them but the Christmas fairy left us a note and a chocolate each. she comes every day" priceless

Well done finishing it! I had grand ideas but I didn't get to it. Luckily we have one mum did and it is doing the job. I love the little stockings...
