well what can I say except I had a wonderful Christmas ... I was thoroughly spoilt by family and friends alike :) DH and the DD's all clubbed together and got me a ...... Kindle Fire HD squeeeeeeeeeee .... I couldn't believe my eyes ... so I have been spending some time with my kindee getting to know it and although I still love proper books I must admit it is lovely to read from this :)
I've heard that all my wee gifts I sent out have arrived and sooo I can now let you know what my brain wave was ..lol ... I made bourse's for everyone for all those orts and I even made one for myself too :) so I can show you a few photos of them too .... not sure if I showed the ornament from Andrea at the Craft room so it is here again to enjoy in case I did ..lol
I started my scissor Keeper by Jane Greenoff on Christmas day morning to be precise as there was only DD2 and I in ... every one else was at work so I had a good few hours peace and quiet to stitch merrily away ... and also finished my wee gift which is winging its way over the pond to its new owner .... hopefully I will be able to show you what I stitched for her .......I have also worked on The North Wind by LHN one of my this years crazies over this last week too .... for next years crazy challenge over at the yahoo group I am doing the WIP challenge and may be throw one or two new ones in there ...lol ... I have bought a four drawer filing cabinet and have filled it with all my charts that I have kitted up so far soooo I don't think I shall be short of a project or two now will I ..lol .... so at the moment (well not right now as I am yackking to you all ...hehehe) I am re arranging the craft room to get it in and re organised .... I took a photo for you can't wait to see what you say ...lol ...
Tonight I am going to start my SAL with DJ we are stitching together Friendship Blooms by Blue Ribbon Designs and hopefully going to work on it every Tuesday .. I am doing mine on antique white 40 count with the recommended WDW threads ... they seemed to look nicer on there than the other fabrics I had :)
Yesterday Master Bentley and I ventured to the woods for our morning pootle ... it was a lovely bright winters day with a chilly breeze around the face , I came home with some wonderful burnt cheeks ...lol . ... the wood was lovely and peaceful with just the sound of the blue tits cheeping and the finches chattering and Master Bentley churning the leaves up chasing some in the breeze , he came home a wee bit muddier than he started out with ...lol
Ok think I need another cuppa now ... any one ???
right sorted, sluuurrrppppp ahhhhh perfect .... I counted up a tally of all I had stitched this year and considering I have actually worked for 6 months of this year after having a three year break I don't think I have done to shabbily with a grand sum total of ....... 38 stitched items and most of them were gifts :) and that doesn't include the Christmas gifts either which were stitched by the machine ...lol
