Last of my Christmas projects

So I have finally finished the christmas projects I had set myself (Just!)
These are the 'Merry Christmas' banners I was asked to make in different languages. I acidentally made one extra in French, so decided to keep that one for myself!

Suppose I best get on with my uni work now....!

Surface design for fashion.

I'm now well into my second project at CCAD. This is a fashion and embroidery project for which I used the A/W 2012 trend, 'Bohemian Way' as my starting point. These are my first 2 digitally printed final designs to be cut into garment shapes. I will begin embroidering them whilst sitting in front of the telly, stuffing my face, over the Christmas holidays!

(Apologies for the creases, I haven't washed and ironed them since printing them yet!)

Slow progress...

So for the first of my Christmassy projects, I decided to make some lovely Christmas stockings, for three very special little people!
I haven't had much time to spend on them recently with all my uni work (and didn't really have time to spend today on them!) But as its now December, I thought I best get cracking before Santa arrives!
I managed to get the applique finished, just the lettering to finish before I start putting them together. I'm wondering if I should give the snowman some small buttons down his front, and some stick arms or just leave him as he is? Any thoughts?...
