The Hop is hosted by Jo over at Serendipitous Stitching.
First to talk about our Santa stories... hmm... well. My own childhood first. Living in a flat roofed council house in a new town, I remember being worried as we had no chimney, how would he manage? Oh he has a Magic Key that works just for Santa and Christmas (maybe they thought I'd worry about someone getting in outside that time).
For our own little one (now a 6ft 4 beanpole), we began quite a complex process. There would be mince pies or other sweet food item depending on what we had in, and usually Baileys or sherry, but then there would be mess left by the reindeer (just the sawdust 'reindeer food' from school fetes). And sometimes Santa even left a personal handwritten message. Yikes it was sometimes hard work to remember exactly what we'd said!
I was so well ahead of myself with my Advent stitch that it took a while to remember what it was!! This sweet Lucie Heaton mouse. I really enjoyed this little stitch a lot.
Merry Christmas blogpeeps!!
