A Very Merry Christmas
Hope everyone is having a wonderful Christmas. Here we are at Lapland UK (the one that IS okay lol) with our one to one with Santa. We had a wonderful time and felt really looked after by all the elves. We ended up ice skating which Lily had never done before and I hadn't done it in a few years so was a bit wobbly to start with.
We had a lovely day today and DH got me a new laptop YAY!! which means I can come on here a lot more now. He also got me those gorgeous scissors from France that some folks have been seen with. Woot woot!! He also got me the complete seasons dvds of Prison Break.
Now I have been stitching. I stitched this for my good friend Amanda's Christmas present but she hasn't got it yet so if she happens upon my blog it's game over. Anyway, here it is. It is from Cross Stitch Happy's blog and is the hummingbird triangle scissor case stitched on silkweaver opalescent 32 count linen. It was my first attempt at making one of these.
I will have some more pics of stitching soon as I am doing a few exchanges and am I waiting for the folks to recieve them.
Some peeps were interested in the Basket of Biscornu idea I mentioned in the last post. Well if you are still interested, my good friend Tracy has set up a blog for it and will be sending out invites to anyone interested in joining. She is also offering an incentive to people who do all 12 biscornu. Go take a look and if you are interested then please email her and tell you you'd like to join. The more the merrier!
On another note, I have been contacted by Paula from Kelmscott Designs who has asked if she can give something toward the incentive I am offering on the Needleprint Beatrix Potter SAL blog. We are pretty full on there now - only a few places left and I will be closing for membership come 1st January. But what a great, thoughtful thing for Paula to do. She is of course joining us in the SAL as well. Yipee!
Here are some pictures of projects I have kitted up ready to start next year - goodness so many of them..
