In 1981 I started a City and Guilds Embroidery course and after a few weeks working with different techniques we were given our first assignment - Something to Delight a Child. Christmas was coming and so I decided to make an Advent calendar. Until about 10 years ago I used that calendar every year, but then we started travelling to UK for Christmas and it was too bulky to take with us. So a couple of years ago I made a more portable calendar.
So my original calendar has sat in a cupboard for some time - but now it is going to a new home and so I thought I would share a few photographs before it goes.
Just a few pictures of the little charms. The tiniest cathedral window pin cushion I have ever made - 1" square.
