Christmas is Coming! Bonersan is Rejoicing!

Christmas is coming!!! Believe it or not, Christmas trees are already springing up in Singapore on the last few days of Oct. I have also started on .... gingerbread man! Done with a free template I printed out quite a while ago, with brown felt on cardstock backing, they are all ready for the Nov Paper Doll swap!

This "Lace" ATC went to Emily Wilmarth in Sweden for the Textile ATC Oct trade - tatted lace and machine laces.

I enjoyed drawing and assembling the skeleton so much that I decided to trace another one out, this time on a Japanese food wrapper I saved. Bonersan, as I called him, is jumping with joy over what I won in another 2 giveaways!!

This is a hand-painted canvas on the theme "Have Needles Will Travel" I won in Cheryl's giveaway. Cheryl has put the canvas on stretcher bars, and it also comes with a stitch guide. She graciously include some embroidery flosses too! I must admit I'm not a stitcher, so all the stitching terms are foreign to me. I must really do some research before starting! I'm hoping to make this to slot into the cover for my ATC album containing all my fabric ATCs :)

Another win! 2 skeins of Zarina's hand-dyed threads in her Fall into Fall Quilt Bloggers Giveaway. Zarina is in KL, Malaysia, and if you like vintage-looking thread colours, check out her etsy shop for her HDTs.

Thank you Cheryl and Zarina!!!

Hi Angeline, I have more gingerbread boys and girls coming!

Thanks, Suz, BSOTF! BSOTF, your festive tattings are so cute and unique. How do you anchor all those trees, reindeers on the tatted motifs?
