Christmas Eve



Finally on Christmas Eve, and with only a few hours to spare, I finished Malia's Christmas Stocking.  Another beautiful Shepherds Bush design ..... here is the stocking without the added trinkets and charms which really do finish it off ....





A quick afternoon visit to the beach for a bit of Christmas Eve relaxation ..... and we almost had the beach to ourselves ....





And here is the finished stocking with charms, buttons, beads and trinkets all added ..... ready to hang on Christmas Eve ......





I'm really happy that I managed to finish the stockings for each of our new granddaughters .... Lyndie and Malia ..... some treasured family heirlooms ....



And with a son on deployment overseas, we were really happy to hear that he received his care package on Christmas Eve too ..... the possum knitted beanie was a big hit !!   And his gorgeous little boy Jonah had painted him lots of pictures too.     Andrea had made him a memory quilt with lots of photos before he left which is hanging in his room .... lovely reminders of home ..... we are looking forward to having Andrea, Jonah and Malia visit in a couple of days time .....





And on Christmas Eve one of the local Santa's helpers drove around in his vintage car and stopped to say hello along the way .....   just goes to show that Santa's helpers use many many forms of transport ....
