.....I have a finish
If you've been visiting me for a while you may be forgiven for thinking that I had given up on cross stitching, but no, I just needed to find my enthusiasm for it again.
I found it when I dug this cute little piece out that I started some time earlier in the year.
I seem to remember stuffing it back into it's zipper bag In disgust when I miss counted the stitching on the roof.
When it did finally see the light of day again it really only took a week to finish it off.
I'm so pleased with it, and I have Mark at my local stitching shop to thank for the lovely framing, again.
It's yet to have a hanging place because I'm knee deep in decorating at the moment and all my walls are bare, so for now it has a place a top the fireplace in my bedroom.
DD#1 and #2 took ourselves off for the day on Saturday, It was Jenny's due date and we thought a day out would keep her occupied, (and maybe help things along!)
We did a trip to some farm shops looking at all the goodies on offer, the fruit and veg looked so much better than what the local supermarkets have on the shelves, I wish there were farm shops more local to me where I could buy my green grocery, but sadly we don't have a lot of choice now.
We had a lovely drive in the countryside and ended up at Webbs of Wychbold.
They had the most wonderful Christmas displays out, I couldn't resist taking a few photos.
Wouldn't it be great to have this in your garden?
or these cute little fellas?
We called this the 'Home Alone Tree'
Because it looks like the one in the Home Alone film :-)
My favourites are the Santas though.
So many different ones!
Don't you just love their happy chubby faces!
I've been having a bit of a clear out because of the decorating.
Lots of things I've taken to the charity shop but I came across this craft book and wondered if anyone would like it?
It's brand new, and there are lots of projects to try out.
If anyone would like it just say, If more than one person shows an interest I'll put the names in a hat (or something like) and draw a name.
Jenny is 2 days over her due date now so we are all on alert for a phone call, every night I'm going to bed expecting to be woken up.
I hope he or she makes an appearance before Sunday, It's Marks 50th birthday and it would be nice to have his first grandchild here for that :-)
Until next time xx
