One last post before Christmas! I have been panicking a little as I popped a little gift in the post to Shirlee at the beginning of December and as the days went by I was getting more and more worried that it wasn't going to reach her or it was stuck in customs as I forgot to remind the man in the PO that it needed a customs label. Of course he should have known really and not needed reminding if he knows his job! Anyway it finally arrived yesterday so a massive sigh of relief could no doubt be heard right across the world!
So here is Shirlee's wee gift. Unfortunately I messed up big style making this up and it ended up a little too small to hold teabags without folding them but she loves it all the same so I am very happy! I included some teabags with it, Mango and Cinnamon, which I hope Shirlee will enjoy.
The Little Stitcher Tea Time
Gift for Shirlee.
On Sunday evening I finished Cottage Garden Samplings My Garden Journal February's Primrose but will save that for after Christmas. I also finished PSS Mary's Sampler :). I'm getting down my WIPs now!
I was catching up on blogs the other day when I came across a mention of Stitch From Stash 2014 so I duly followed the link to see what it was all about it! I have my surrogate sis, Lisa, keeping me right and me keeping her right and my dear friend Barb too but I thought what better way to make it even better by joining Mel and all the others doing this. It will give me even more determination to make it through to December 2014 without buying although we have allowances but I won't be using that for charts and I certainly won't be using it every month or the full amount. The purpose of me stitching from my stash in 2014 is so that I don't buy anymore charts, get my charts down and stitch some of the beauties I have that have been neglected! So if you're interested in joining go have a look at this page on Mel's blog and drop her an email.
That is definitely it now until after Christmas! Lol! The turkey crown is cooked as is the gammon and everything else is prepared just to go in the oven tomorrow. I get as much as I can done on a Christmas Eve so that I don't have to send all Christmas morning in the kitchen meaning more time with my family. I am just about to vac up and get a shower then we can all relax this evening. Jess and I have a Christmas Eve tradition of getting in our PJs and watching A Christmas Carol ( the Patrick Stewart version) and now Abi joins in too :)
So again have a wonderful Christmas everyone and stay safe and warm if you are in areas of storms. The wind is supposed to whip up here this evening but further up North it is forecasted to be much worse.
With much love
