The count down is finally over and tomorrow is the well awaited birthday of our Saviour Jesus Christ...With decked up halls and boughs of holly when every one in the world has geared up for the event, we bloglanders are pretty sure waiting to show off the wonderful creations of yule tide spirit..The spirit behind it involves sharing and admiring the fellow bloggers creations as well..It was this disposition that made me visit my loving friend Nima .. An excellent seamstress and home maker herself she had some wonderful jam tarts and cookies freshly baked for me and my DH.. But believe me I couldnt sit in one place for long since her sweet abode is a show case of her awesome christmas creations.. I was relishing every moment and every precious piece of art in front of my eyes..while we chated and giggled all through out, our husbands relaxed in each others company, now and then teasing us, watching our high spirits ..My loving friend also gifted me a crocheted dainty snowflake and a beautiful beaded crosss stitched ornament.. This is the photo of her lovely tree loaded with her exquisite handmade christmas trimmings..You can have a look at all these eye candies in her gorgeous blog, www.madetotreasure.com.
Have a look at the sparkling snowflakes crocheted by her.. Absolutely petite ! I regret not having snapped a few close ups:(.. The tree skirt has also been made by her..
Now I would like to share with you all my lastest christmas creation of this year.. I sewed a set of soft furnishngs for my bed room.. I had purchased a satin finish off white bed spread from India during my last visit to my home town.. The plan was to applique something on it.. But lack of time made me rethink.. So finally decided on sewing a runner ,a few throw pillows and accessories.. Since the pillow covers were readymade it was not easy to unpick the seams and embellish something on them .. So ultimately decided upon attaching some matching bows that would go with the theme.The bows are attached using press buttons.

Two bedside table mats with gold tissue borders
To satisfy my passion for beads, I have secured a few red beads ,to represent the holly berries
A matching tissue boxThats all for today and for this christmas..Now there is a long wait for the next season's creativity .. isnt it?
Christmas comes but once a year. When it comes it brings good cheer. So Enjoyyyy..
Relish lots of baked goodies and red wines.. Listen to plenty of seasonal hymns .. Here's my fav song by Cliff Richard for you../http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b7lKKNrXUJg
With the warmest regards and the merriest christmas wishes,..................Mini
