Christmas wishes and a Christmas Card Holder.

Hello,

Gee the Christmas rush is on now. I finished my Christmas Card Holder yesterday and managed to get the right size hanger.I will use this to put my cards into as they tend to fall off everything when the air conditioning is on or the window is open. I wonder who I ran into at the craft shop?Anita and I were both shopping for hangers.Lucky there were plenty there so we didn't have to fight for them. The pattern is one of Gail Pan's. Gail thank you for the wonderful little pattern. I have seen a few of these popping up around the blogs. I have been doing a stitchery of a Santa but I am still working on this so will show a photo after Christmas. I have changed the photo in my header. I took the photo today of a "Giant Russian Sunflower" which is in full bloom amongst the roses in the front garden here at Kainga.As this will be my last post until after Christmas I wish a Merry Christmas to one and all. Have a safe holiday . Enjoy your time with family and friends.

Merry Christmas.

That's lovely, Bev - so bright and Christmassy. Love your new header, too! Merry Christmas to you and the family. Chris has Santa's helper looking after one of the girl's gifts. She even does deliveries on Christmas Eve.
