Merry Christmas - Joyeux Noel -

Merry Christmas - Joyeux Noel!!
How are you spending your Christmas? I hope you do have a very lovely day and holiday!
I spent most of time with my family (include my brother's family), we went out for shopping to buy Christmas pressie for nephew and niece, and also Tass then we came back to his house to see his new born baby Rikako! She is so tiny and so pretty!
As for stitching, last night I finished finishing of Noel (bell), and presented for mum just in time!!
I took photos on a white table cloth, so it doesn't show justice, though I sew two pieces together and made it into an ornament!
I wanted to make the one like beautiful works like Yuko at Casa Mia in Italy did, though I miscalculated to cut the fabric, so I made it into an ornament.

I added my mum's initial (H) lace motif on it and added ribbon.
I was very rush so it isn't beautifully sew together, though mum was so happy to receive unexpected present from me, so I'm happy with it!

I used this above fabric for the back of the ornament. If I make one for myself, I will use more simple fabric, though I thought mum would like this kind of fabric, so...
Unexpectedly, Sweetie saw this ornament and said "I want this, too!!" "Mama, please make one for me, too!!!" and he is still remembering to go for shopping to buy (T) lace motif, lol
I don't know he yet want me to make one for himself, so I will ask him tomorrow.
(I will make one for myself!)

Here is the most loveliest ornament made by Sweetie Tass!
See, he drew "car" on the tree... lol
But I was amazed how he has done, he couldn't make anything like this before, thank Preschool, thank teachers!

Yesterday, mum's friend came with her home made Christmas for Tass.

How kind of her! She is always so kind, Tass likes her, too.

Decoration was done by us, Sweetie is trying to pick whips, like kitten!
Tada-! Lovely cake, isn't this?
As every year, Sweetie and I left some food for Santa and reindeer!
This year I forgot to buy cookies, so we left chocolates and milk, and carrots for reindeer.
Sweetie is looking forward to see this plate tomorrow morning, oh before then he will be surprised by Santa's pressie!

Merry Christmas to you all!
Thanks for your visit!

Hi again Yuko! My blogger did something very weird and posted the same comment ten times! I'm trying to delete some of them but it does not want to work so well. This is really strange - it has never happened to me before - I just wanted to wish you and Sweetie a very Merry Christmas!

Oh Yuko, I love love love the Christmas bell ornament. It's so delicate and sweet.
Your son's little hand-made ornament for you is so cute. It reminds me of the days when my kids were still little and gave me something hand-made for Christmas every year.
Have a great Christmas Day with your family.
