Advent Candle, Star and Kantha Jacket

16 Dec

I love having an Advent Candle and watching it get smaller as Christmas gets closer.  

Our beautiful Danish cut-out star is ready to go up.

I plan on wearing my Kantha jacket this evening. It is made from recycled saris and gets its name from the tiny running stitches which both strengthen it and give it its design and which are called Kantha. I love the design, the colours and the fact that it has had a previous life in another country!

      Wonderful isn’t it? And the little stitches are all hand sewn. What patience and what skill! 🙂
