Christmas is Coming

This is my Christmas Wreath which I finished this afternoon and have just hung on my front door.  It's the first day of Advent tomorrow so we will start burning the Advent candle, a little every evening until Christmas Eve.  I received my first Christmas card this morning, along with a lovely festive block from Katrina in NZ.

The wreath was quite straightforward:  English paper-piecing, six diamonds to make a star, backed with another star and stuffed.  Then my beloved made a wire frame for me to sew the stars on, with vintage buttons in the centres, little swags of beads, I added a bow and the Father Christmas figure and that's it, done.  I hope you like it.  I notice a lot of bloggers are posting pictures of their decorations and Christmas trees.  I haven't got as far as putting the tree up yet, maybe next weekend.


  1. A delightful wreath! I'm just starting to decorate our home. All the Xmas quilts are up, the rest will be added over the next week or so.

  2. Hi Lis, Thank you for popping by my blog and commenting. I love this wreath, it's gorgeous. I always say I want to get one of the holly and pine twig type ones but my OH says he will make one and then never gets around to it. Teresa x
