Before i get caught up in Christmas activities i thought I'd stop by and wish you all a very Merry Christmas, i want to thank you all for your visits to my blog over the last 12 months, i know that i have enjoyed visiting you all and seeing your wonderful stitching, finishing and getting getting to know you. I have a few things to share, namely the last of my LHN ornaments, i have really enjoyed these, i can't believe it's been 12 months since we started this SAL! The only one i didn't get finished into an ornament was the Pear Tree, i cut the fabric too close when i finished stitching and the only thing i think it will finish as is a pinkeep and as yet I'm not brave enough to try that finish. Any how here are the last two:
My favourite out of these two is definitely All is Calm, so cute!
I did one last trip into town today and there was a half price sale of Christmas decorations, amongst other things i couldn't resist this metal tree
Isn't it perfect for stitched ornies :-)
It will hold 15, so I'll have to get busy for next year, but I'm also thinking it could be used for seasonal ornies too as it's not a Christmasy looking tree, what do you think?
Last but by no means least is a lovely gift i received from Elaine, such a pleasant surprise to receive this lovely stitched and finished snowman ornament (there were also some chocolate Santa's that got eaten right away :-) and some lovely hand and body lotion which is now in my treatment basket in my bedroom:-)
Thank you so much Elaine, everything was appreciated and your snowman will always have a special place on my tree :-)
Well the presents are all wrapped and ready and i will be heading of to bed soon, tomorrow i have the day off preparing food as we are going out for Christmas lunch this year, Yipeeee no cooking, lol. My mum, sister and brother in law and my Niece and her boyfriend and their daughter are coming too so hopefully it will be a good day. After lunch we are going to my eldest daughters for more nibbles and present opening.
Boxing day will be my day to sit and stitch and play with my presents :-) and then the day after will be my birthday! 2011 will be my last year in my 40's ;-)
Have fun whatever you may be getting up too - Until next time - have a good one!
