Christmas Canvas Work

I know Christmas is a bit of a long way off but I'm into decoration mode now and have finished this lovely stitched canvas work decoration designed by Sylvia. This is what we will be doing in our first week back at Needlework next week!

And this little fellow sits on my shelf in my sewing room and always keeps an eye on what I'm working on! I made this little Santa bear (4" high) a while ago, but love having him watching me all the time!

Another canvas scissor fob but this time attached to my other Clover cutter! You know how you always can't put your hand on the one you're after when you need it??? So I have two!

And although I have hung this for the photo, this is a canvas needle pincushion which I have stitched and which I took the pins and needles out to photograph! Love the colours in this one and the simplicity and effectiveness of canvas work!
