A Little Needlecraft

I have a couple of creations from my husband to share with you today.  For our Christmas table this year, he made a lovely textured red tablecloth and a table runner out of some lovely poinsettia fabric, edged with gold satin.  It really looked the part!  Feel free to admire my beautiful ivory roses too!

He also made a little purse for a friend of mine who spent Christmas Day with us.  She's American, so we included a traditional sixpence as well as a quarter and a dime - a sentiment she really appreciated.

Fortunately Socks didn't take it upon himself to create anything for us like this kitty did:

I'll share a little more Christmas needlecraft with you tomorrow,
