If that's a copy of your house, you've got way too many doors. Must be a bloody nightmare to lock up in the evening before you go to bed!

It looks incredible, and it's nice to see an advent calendar with a 25 on it - seems not many do these days!

:D The worst bit is when you take a wrong turn and walk straight out of the upstairs.

And thank you :luv:

That really is smashing, the something that will be brought out year after year, forever.

I made us some family Christmas stockings to hang by the fireplace. They’re a cotton velvet, with a cotton lining and loop, so they should last a long time, and prevent any ‘catches’. I made them from a narrow 1m length of velvet, and managed to get four stockings out of it from a pattern that I drew up specifically to leave as little fabric waste as possible. I drew the pattern to cut on my curing machine as well, so that was very exciting as I hate cutting fabric!

Thank you. I’m glad you said that. I ordered four different samples of similar greens and it took me a long while to finally settle on this. I’d just decorated the living room so wanted something that would fit with it.

Those are awesome. People (I) would pay good money for something like that.

Aw, Dr Z, thank you! I like making things for Christmas as we reuse them each year and it’s nice to take them out each year.

I sewed gingerbread gift tags for all the children I know and buy gifts for, too. Hopefully they’ll also double as a little personalised decoration for the tree. These were simple and I just sewed them in front of the TV. My favourite think about them is that I used a layer of quilt wadding in them (instead of poly fill toy stuffing) so they are lovely and squishy but still
flat, and exactly the right thickness for a gingerbread person. I think I made 12 or 16 in total.
