A lovely customer contacted me the other day to say she was purchasing a red polka dot Letter 'Chief Handkerchief as a Christmas present. When I read the word 'Christmas', I couldn't quite believe it. Has summer well and truly gone? It certainly feels like autumn outside but Christmas just around the corner, really? Don't get me wrong, the thought of jingle bells and Christmas smells have been dancing around my head for the past few months as I prepare new designs and get my shop in ship-shape order for the festive rush. I just haven't been sure at what point to share my Christmas designs with you all. So, I've decided; if my wonderful customers tell me that they've written their letters to Santa and are excitedly shopping with festivities in mind, then I guess it's time to the ring the bell and say Christmas shopping has begun!
This year I have created three very festive embroidery designs, which are available as brooches or handkerchiefs and can be purchased in both my Etsy and Notonthehighstreet shops. I hope you like them!
First up, is Mr Snowman, who comes complete with hat, scarf and carrot stick nose. He's very pleased to meet you all. Though be careful when you shake his hand!
Christmas tree has been embroidered in three different shades of green and comes topped with a golden star to make a wish on!
A festive sprig of holly comes with three berries, each in a different shade of red.
Does this put you in the mood for Christmas or do you feel it's too early to be thinking about turkey, mince pies and sherry? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
