“Christmas Eve” Finishes

I hope you all had the merriest Christmas ever and that Santa was good to you all!

Ours was very quiet this year.  For the first time in a long while, I didn’t have to cook and I only did a minimal amount of baking because we were invited to have Christmas dinner with friends.  We had a wonderful time but there’s no place like home for Christmas.


I have so many things to share with you all and today, I’d like to show you some of the “Christmas Eve” finishes that were sent to me.  If you recall,  “Christmas Eve” is the title of my December First Friday Freebie…Santa stitched on a stocking…and literally, one was completed late on Christmas Eve.

Susan completed two stockings.  Aren’t they wonderful?

Suze's Christmas Eve Stockings

Ariane made hers into a mini quilt which she made as a Christmas gift for her Mother-in-Law.


Then on Christmas Eve, Linda sent me an email saying that she had just finished the last stitches on her stocking.  Take a look…

I just ♥ to see how everyone puts their own spin on each design.  Thanks for sharing, gals!


I can’t believe it but this Friday is the first Friday of January so you know what that means…FFF…First Friday Freebie day!  So please come back then and check it out!  I think you’ll like it…and I’m already busy with February’s design.  There might even be a little surprise on Friday too!

Have a great week and…

Happy stitching!

Kaaren ♥

Each one of the FFF is wonderful. There are so many talented folks out there and I love seeing how they use your pattern differently!!

Sounds like you had a nice relaxing Christmas. Relaxing is something I hope to do a little of this coming week!!

Oh I love all the Santa's! I didn't get near it before Christmas, but maybe in the new year I can get a jump on next year. ;-)

Hi Kaaren - glad you enjoyed a quiet Christmas eve at home. We were home for the first time this year too - it was nice not to be so rushed and to just relax and enjoy the evening!

Love those First Friday finishes from friends!

The Santas are wonderful. Thank you for all the FFF,it is very generous.
One resolution is to be more organised next Christmas so here is a good place to start.

What beautiful finishes. It is amazing what a variety of ways the designs can be used. I can't wait for Friday.

We had a quiet Christmas too. It is nice every now and then to have a quiet one.

The stitcheries are all lovely and the ladies did justice to them. Your Christmas sounds pretty good to me, not too much hard work.
