I ‘ve lost count of the times, I just wanted to throw it away as I was making it, but the end result was totally worth all the tears .If you look really really close you can see the colour difference in the thread.  I’m just too happy that I’m knocking out projects off the UFO list one by one, to be bothered by it now Smile

I had a lot of fun dressing up the children and chatting with the other moms there.

Then it was time for the Carolers to come  singing to our home. We lit up all the candles in the hall.
