Beautiful and special Christmas presents

I received this beautiful canvas with painted poppies as my Christmas present from my friends Ala and Lloyd and their children Martyna, Karolina and our God son Max. The canvas was painted by Martyna who is nearly 15 years old. It is absolutely stunning in every aspect - the colours, composition and attention to details.

This little Christmas stocking was hand stitched for us by our God son Max who is 5 years old. A very special gift indeed.

Thank you very much to Martyna and Max and their family.

This is a sewing journal I fully made for Wendy from my Monday night patchwork group. I have been neglecting my patchwork/ quilt making but my friends don't mind getting paper gifts. The journal was made with coptic binding and I decorated and stamped the inside pages. The journal is tied with a ribbon and there are some stitched tabs inside. Here it is:
