My first Christmas decoration, a scented heart. It has a clove sachet inside, and a cinnamon stick on top. And that's malabrigo alpine pearl wool as the 'ribbon'.
My list of Christmas decorations to make, mostly in red gingham, is (note, none of these are original ideas (hangs head in creative shame) but have been nicked from various shops in Bath, and a certain book of the month);
two Christmassy placemats for trays
several small hearts, as above, for the tree
four hearts hanging one below the other with cinnamon sticks in between spelling 'Noel'
a garland of alternate Christmas trees and stars to hang across the fireplace
several scented stars, in blue fabric
