Making Christmas Cards
I have been busy stitching christmas cards of late. They are 'Real life 'size and are stitched using my favourite blackwork. This is the first year I have made cards and if I say so myself, I think they turned out ok!!! They were nice to stitch, but as usual, I left things a little late and ended up rushing the night before I was due to go my mums with them. Well, because I was rushing, clumsy fingers decided to appear and I lost a needle.... still haven't found that one... be careful when you sit down, kids! Then I dropped the reindeer button, we hunted high and low and couldn't find him, so I had to use a different one, only to find him in full view in the middle of the floor when I was tidying away? There are naughty pixies at work here, I am sure! Then... to top it all off, just as everything was packed and tidied, I turned around and knocked the chess board.... all over that now tidy floor... arghhh. That will teach me for rushing :-(
Today, I have managed to be a little organised and I have sorted out the children's xmas presents. I like to make sure they each have the same amount of presents, as we open the presents one at time by the tree. Well, Little Meg is one short, so I am going to try and stitch her a normal size sampler for her new girlie bedroom. Hmmn.... did I just say I was organised? How long have I got left to stitch it, 10 days? I better stop nattering and get sewing!
PS I was outbid on the special item I wanted for my santa cabin, it was Julie of Bellabelles dolls Mrs Claus and she was delightful. It has to be fingers crossed for next year now!
