Happy Christmas from Sam

 We've been celebrating an early Christmas with Sam, Saz, David and Jessica. I thought you would enjoy a few pictures. Happy Christmas to you all.

Happy Christmas Everyone

have been a hopeless blogger recently. I haven't done much in the way of stitching, although I am continuing to work through the design book by Sandra Meech. This is going to be an extended study I think. 
I had a great holiday in Malta, so relaxing.   I didn't sew while I was away but did buy thread and do some sketchbook work.  Now we're into preparations for Christmas so there's definitely no sewing time. 
I thought I would share pictures of the various stitched Christmas items that decorate my home, including this lovely mug rug from my Global Piecers partner, Teresa. 
You will have seen these other pieces in progress in past posts but here they are together to wish all my followers and blogging friends a very Happy Christmas and a peaceful and stitch-filled 2014.

Today I am thinking about texture. I don't know whether anything here will ever be translated into something in textiles but I have had fun looking.
