|Peace on earth cushion - Tis the Season by Natalie Bird|
This was another quick gift to make and I really love the stitchery pattern.
I am from a large family (I have 6 siblings) and Christmas dinner is at my house this year so that means about 30 people! We have been getting a little ready (I think next week we will suddenly have to start rushing to get all the jobs done on time!) On Sunday we got our tree ...

I usually make this as a slab and cut it into squares but I thought it looked more Christmasy this way. It is a very easy recipe and I have included it below for anyone interested:
270g chocolate melts
2 Tbsp kremelta (solid vegetable fat)
1 1/2 cups chopped nuts
1/3 cup red glace cherries
180g mini marshmallows
Melt the chocolate and kremelta and add all the ingredients, taking care not to squash the marshmallows. Spread into a tin or put into mini cup cases like I did. I decorated with melted white chocolate and chopped red cherries. (This is a Destitute Gormet recipe for any NZ readers.)
I have got the fruit cooking at the moment to make a Christmas cake, I am trying a new recipe so I hope it works out. So, I have got a little done!
It is Friday Night Sew In again on Friday, I am hoping to get a little Christmas sewing done for me this time. The link for FNSI is on my side bar if you are interested in signing up too.
Happy stitching, Wendy
