I was sewing away thinking I had plenty of time, and now suddenly there is only just over 2 weeks to go - December is going too fast, I need another month!
However, I am cross-stiching the last of 11 stockings - I definitely need to find some new patterns for next year's youngsters. And the reactions to those that have already been given is amazing - which is really lovely, it makes every stitch so worth while. Plus the Christmas Tree runner which I showed you in my last blog also hit the mark. I have made two more runners:
I have also sewn another wedding sampler:
I am off up to Nottingham to see my dear old Mum next week, and on route will be seeing friends and delivering the above sampler, plus this quilt - this is a birthday present for one of my long time known friends. Carol will be celebrating a significant birthday in January when they will be away in their home in Barbados, so I have made this is bright colours which I am hoping will look good in their beautiful home:
Surprise -we have just taken delivery of a case of wine - - that will certainly be drunk before the end of 2012 - cannot wait to find out who has sent us such a great gift! I love pleasant surprises!!
I will blog again when I return from Nottingham - and when I have decorated the tree and put up some decorations. Then the festivities can really get going!
