I really enjoyed embroidering these little beads around this Victorian Scene, they remind me of sleigh~bells.
As I was doing it I found myself thinking about how many Christmas traditions actually originate from this time and were initially uniquely middle~class celebrations.

I was very touched today when Carolyn hand~delivered the textile art heart I won on her recent giveaway ~ she gave me a beautiful handstitched purple heart with a little silver bead on it and it is beautiful! I will post a picture of it tomorrow.
She also gave me a huge bundle of red and purple materials which I can't wait to look through ~ but I am saving that pleasure until tomorrow as it's nearly school run time and some things you shouldn't rush.
Thank you Carolyn xx
