CHRISTMAS IN CANVASWORK

I love Christmas.  Every year I say to myself no more Christmas ornaments and then I find myself being called to create something new because someone challenged me.  I hear a word and an image comes to my mind.  I see a thread that just has to be stitched or a bead or crystal that just says "pick me"!  I love the colours, the lights and the smells of Christmas and every ornament and book are my favourites!    As I hang the ornaments from years before, I remember people, the fun we had with each and everyone. I hope you too enjoy the love and beauty that Christmas brings.  These are the items that will last forever because we use them for a short time and carefully put them away for the following year.
