Some Christmas Sewing!

Over the weekend I made a few Christmas goodies from the Art to Heart books. A Santa bag that fits a 2 litre bottle of cordiol and another Santa bottle cover that you could also use as a door stopper. As I'm having Christmas lunch at home for the first time (we usually go to mums), I decided to make some napkins and little Santa napkin holders. I made 8 for the adults, and I will also be having 7 children (but they only get paper napkins) so will be cooking a hot lunch for 15 all up!
Yesterday we had thunderstorms and quite a bit of rain, so thought it was a good chance this morning to take some snaps of my roses. I am unsure of the names of my standard roses, as a little puppy removed most of the tags before I could familiarize myself with the names!
