The first thing I have to say is a huge congratulations to Charlotte who received notification today that she achieved an A* in her English Literature IGCSE. Charlotte works so hard at her school work and she thoroughly deserves this grade. Well done Darling….we are SO proud of you!
It has been a couple of weeks since my last Seasons of Joy post and I have been busy as a beaver filling up my Christmas stocking present box:
I am currently working on present seven (the Christmas Tree Angels for the girls hope box) and present eight:
The angels are coming along nicely, with just one last one to add hair and face onto. I have made their dresses, petticoats and wings from a Christmas dress all four girls have worn over the years:
And some close ups:
I am thinking of adding a sparkling head dress made from white/silver sequins and some sort of flower/garland falling from their hands, which seem a little big for their body 🙂 All in all though, I am very happy with them. My girls have seen them being made so it’s fine if I post them.
It is my goal that they are passed down from generation to generation, so with this in mind, I have sewn each girl’s name on the leg of their angel with this year’s date:
This means that when my great, great, great….grand-daughter hangs pops it on the top of her Christmas tree, she can know that back in 2018 her great, great, great….grand-mother was merrily sewing away.
I have also been busy framing more pictures. Yay me! This one took a bit longer and I sent off the pictures to Boots to be printed properly. I really love how they turned out though:
I am half-way through a large house frame which can contain multiple photos. Really looking forward to getting that one up on the wall.
Well that’s it. I have plans to make some heart Christmas decorations for the tree out of a deep red crushed velvet dress of the girls, as well as filling up their Mistletoes bag. So many plans and not enough time to do them in! Have a great week everyone 🙂
