Finally I've found five minutes to sit down, all be it 12 midnight when really i should be in bed as i still have work tomorrow :o All week I've been trying to get the dining room painting finished so that the tree can at last be put up this weekend, I should be able to finish off on Saturday, not tomorrow as it's our staff 'do' tomorrow night, meal and free bar from 5-8pm, not sure to expect from where we are going the reports of the place are not good...we shall see!

My dd#2 is coming home from uni on Monday, so my task for Sunday is to get her room ready, I'm afraid it's become a dumping ground for Christmas presents and wrapping paper over the last couple of weeks. It was her 21st on December 2nd..
Jo with her 21st balloon. All girls together.

It will be my eldest daughters birthday on Monday. December is a very busy month for us, my wedding anniversary is on Saturday, (i ask you, what on earth possessed us to get married this close to Christmas, I swear when we married it didn't seem this close, lol, i remember the sun was shining), we don't usually celebrate our wedding anniversary it's a long story but usually one or both of us usually forget and the date has passed before we realise, too many other things going on i suppose. Then it's my birthday on 27th & my brothers on 28th, phew! at least we get a break on the birthday front until April!.
Just one more photo to share, i heard that Gillie has received the Christmas ornament and goodies i sent her, i really enjoyed stitching this and i achieved a couple of 'firsts' for me, one being my first stitched Santa and the other being the first time i made cording. I hope you like it Gillie
Isn't he cute, i almost wanted to keep him for myself lol, but i know he's gone to a good home :)On that note i will say goodnight, i have to be up at 7am and its 12.30 now, not going to get much beauty sleep tonight!..Tara a bit x

Great pictures of your girls.

Your PS ornamnet turned out great for being the first with the cording and all.

Speaking of birthdays, our son is on the 1st of December, me on the 24th of December as well as our engagement and wedding anniversary at church which was took part in Asia so it is not honored here in Holland.

Advance Happy Anniversary and Happy Birthday greetings!!

Wow! You have a month of celebrating to do. I love your ornament. I have this little pattern but no time to stitch everything I want. Wonder if we will get an extra hour a day in 2009? LOL! Where are some photos of that red wall??? :)

Maggie--just curious. How did the cording go? I have not tried it. What did you use? What would you do differently? It is very pretty and I may do brave it very soon!
