A Little Christmas

I woke up early this morning with an idea for my advent rabbit.
I made him years ago, but he is large and I have a hard time finding a place for him, but today inspiration hit.
and I think that my one and only Christmas decoration so far turned out OK.
When I got home on Friday I had a wonderful surprise in the mail from Ginger over at Primitives by the Light of the Moon she does great punch needle and this is a little booklet of her designs.  So I need to break out the needle and get going! 
Now I know you have seen my rug in progress, complete and now put on my foot stool.
The cats love to snooze here as it is soft and warm, plus it has some little cat friends.
One last picture of my blanket crane, I have had it for some time and I finally put it up.
It hangs over my workspace and I can put fabrics that I'm working with so they are right at arms length.
As you can see by the mess on the table I'm in the middle of some projects.
I hope that you have had a productive weekend and may your coming week contain lots of stitching.

Ahh, I can see you used your time wisely yesterday. Love the blanket crane I have had one on my wish list for years. Rug/stool look great.

What a good idea. I have a very old crane. It just might look good in my craft room!

Lovely update Carmen! The bench with the cat piece looks amazing. How can you not smile every time you look at it.
Lovely surprise from your friend and that rabbit is pretty fabulous.
I received the magazines! Thank you so much.
Have a great week!

Your bench finished up beautifully! I need to learn how to attach rugs to benches... I enjoy hooking, but was running out of wall space... so need different finishing ideas... lol!
