Day 8 of the Advent Calendar Blog Hop

It's that time of year again for Jo @ Serendipitous Stitching to host her Online Advent Calendar! 

This is an oldie, but a goodie.  I made this for my parents many years ago, it was one of my first "big" ones.  

This was a quick stitch I made last year, but I'm not quite sure I like the framing for it.  It's not entirely finished, so I can still change it.

As for my best present ever?  I don't really recall having one specific present, but growing up I couldn't wait to get my annuals from Britain.  I went from the little kids books, up to the "big" girl books - Bunty, Judy, misc others, and then My Guy.  I also got to read my brother's Beano and Dandy books.  Christmas day was spending doing a lot of reading!
And now, my boys read the Beano and Dandy so the tradition continues.

And for fun, the misfit toys have found a home!

Be sure to head over to Gracie @ Needles Pins and Dragonflies for tomorrow's door.
