It's amazing how some colour can add such interest to a piece. The white was looking a bit bland on its own, so I'm glad I decided to work on another area of the design. I just love this holly sticking out of the urn. The colours are so gorgeous too.

You know, I contemplated changing the red colour for a moment. Then decided to stick with the original one. I thought it may have been too orange but I'm happy with it now I've seen it on the fabric. This design is really testing my decision making. I needn't make it so hard for myself. I'm now content with the white I've chosen for it.
Christmas is fast approaching now. It's funny how there's this big long lead up to the Day, then it's all over in a flash. So much preparation goes into it: trying to get families together, decorating the house, present buying, arranging what food to have and who will bring what, even down to what to wear to the occasion! It's busier in the shops, everything is selling out, and if you don't grab that item you were thinking of getting for who knows who, then you just know you'll miss out next time you go looking for it. Only yesterday was I thinking that 'wouldn't it be nice if you could jet off to another country for a holiday this time of year, and avoid getting caught up in all the hype, while seeing how others celebrate Christmas'. Then I was quickly jolted back to reality and got back to work! Ah, Merry Christmas. :)
