Advent calendar

Another project out of the basket . . . .

Anni Down's Advent Calendar
from A Christmas Story


i really like taking these close up shots




i actually took these photo's a few days ago 
and was going to post them to show you all 
what i was up to,  
but things have been very busy around here . . .
and after a late night stitching session . . . .
taaahh dahhhh



sorry the photo is a little dull, but i was  having trouble with lighting



so i took it back outside , in between the rain . . .
sorry Chooky but we have had alot, i keep trying to send it your way 
but . . .
it seems to like hanging around the coast 




i am not sure why but this is my favourite bauble

 i made a  bit of a mistake with the baubles, i cut out a larger size template
and it wasn't until i had almost finished all the baubles 
that i realised
my girls very kindly reassured me by saying
don't worry mum
it looks like our Christmas tree
full to the brim . . . .



i still need to get the marking off this
but couldn't wait to show you

i guess now i have to wait a few months before i get to use it


hope your all happy and healthy

It looks lovely!! I made the advent calender a couple of years back for a sample in a craft shop, and must admit I was a bit sad when I sent it off!

It has turned out beautifully. You might have a bit of a wait, but no last minute rush either.

I've always admired this advent calendar....it looks great...are the baubles removable, and you add one each new day of the advent?
