Today is my dear friend Chris' birthday and I decided I wanted to do her a box finish. Chris and I met online on a stitching forum a few years ago and since then we have met up several times, as we don't live too far away from each other, and have become good friends. I have just had a text from her and she loves her gift so I am very happy:)

Birthday gift for Chris
This is from the Joyeux Noel booklet. I replaced the word Noel with Chris. Happy Birthday Chris!
Tuesday evening was SAL night with my surrogate sis Lisa and I finished Snow Fun and made a small start on Snow House. Snow Fun stitched up so quickly.

A little progress on Country Cottage Needleworks Snowflake Serenade next. I have changed the colour of the wording White Christmas as the grey colour the chart suggested didn't show up very well on my fabric.
Next "finish" is the bonus block on Blackbird Designs Anniversaries of the Heart. This one seems to have taken ages with me taking a break from it so I'm relieved it's finally done! I'll start Swan Lake next week I think as I have something else I want to stitch tonight!

At long last I got the chenille trim sewn on Christmas Tea so here it is! I found the chenille trim quite difficult to sew on so does anyone have any tips please? :)
Thank you for all your lovely comments on my giveaway wins yesterday. I cannot tell you how lucky and blessed I feel to have won all those goodies. Thank you again to Kate and Myra :)
My new camera had to go back to the shop as there was a mark on something, possibly a sensor inside the camera, which showed on my photos. Thankfully I was able to exchange it for the same make and model and this one appears to be fine. I will know better when I get the opportunity to get out and take some photos as it didn't always show up on my stitching photos.
Until next time...... keep stitching!
With much love
