    finished this little advent calendar just in time. Charel thought the pockets were awfully small, but I'll put pictures of the candies in them. That way they also stay there .Otherwise the pockets might be empty before the due date.

    Those little crossstich signs show what is happening behind the door. They were really small, like 4,5 x 4,5 cm or 6 x 8 cm. That is the end of that serie and I'm glad I could finish them

    have a nice Sunday

    - your cross stitch pictures are beautiful. Perfect for a sewing room.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

    Beautiful work! I like your idea of putting pictures of the candies instead of the real ones. I could see the real ones disappearing ahead of time here too.

    I made calendars like that for my grandkids several years ago. One family has two boys and the other three girls. Believe me, you can get more than one piece of candy into the pockets!
