 Here is our Online Advent Calendar, it will be updated every day. 

Scroll down to see the latest picture and a link to the poster's blog.

This year I have asked each participant what their favourite Christmas book is.
It could be a traditional Christmas story, a modern tale, a book you read as a child, to your own children or one you discovered as an adult.

Finally, I will be adding my favourite Christmas book a little bit later this month, so check back and find out what it is.  To keep you going, this is one that came into the shop today which I will definitely be buying for myself!

On the first day of Christmas my Grandma sent to me . . .

Grandma's presents may start off sensible - a partridge is easy enough to take care of - but her generosity soon gets wildly out of hand . . . 

The Twelve Days of Christmas: Or Grandma is Overly Generous is a witty new take on the festive classic The Twelve Days of Christmas, accompanied by beautiful full-colour illustrations, this is the perfect Christmas present for any child.

Publisher: Pan Macmillan 
ISBN: 9781529043372

This is such a lovely, wonderful idea!! I wish I wasn't so late to the game. Does it have to be a cross stitched piece, or is any needlework accepted? Thank you for hosting!

Carol said...

Oh, that sounds like a fun book! Will have to check it out... I've enjoyed seeing the advent calendar posts so far!

Mary said...

So many beautiful stitches!! The only book I have was recommended by you, The 12 days of Christmas by John Julius Norwich. I will enjoy reading it again this year after the year we have had!

I love this Advent Calendar hop each year, great fun visiting fellow bloggers from all over the world. Thank you Jo for hosting once again. Happy Christmas.

Thank you for hosting the Advent Calendar Hop this year Jo,
Your card was lovely and appreciated. I'll have to look for that book, but in our family it is Aunty Jan who outdoes Santa, not Grankda!
Season's Greetings to you and yours.
