To get in the mood!!!
I thought I would remind you all who is coming soon ;-) I hope I didn't hear any groans?...Are you all feeling Christmassy?? I'm not there quite yet but will be soon as I will start and decorate my blog and house maybe this coming weekend :-)) I had also better do some Christmas shopping before there is nothing left...there is still plenty of time though, isn't there?
Whilst I am still doing secret stitching I thought I would show you this picture that I must have stitched about 9 years ago for the first Christmas in our house. It is from the St.Nick Folio by Shepherds Bush. I stitched it on 32ct that has a silver lurex thread through the weave so it sparkles!! I really love the buttons on this, it does also have white beads on it but my pictures are a bit rubbish and I couldn't decide which was the better one so have put them both on ;-) I framed it myself as you can probably tell!
I am nearly finished with my secret stitching for the exchanges and now only have the Valentine one left to do. I am really looking forward to stitching that one and have very much enjoyed doing the stitching for the other 3 exchanges. I only have one to post this side of Christmas but wanted to do them all early so I could take my time....correction.... to make sure I did actually have the time, as it has taken me nearly 3 weeks of the time I have, to do what I have done, if that makes sense...lol
Now I have some finishing to do but I really enjoy that part. I think my plans for any Christmas stitched gifts will not happen, I will have to see, but if I do any I will have nothing much stitch - wise to put on my blog until January as it would be a secret. Then again, I am sure to find something else for the blog as I will put some pictures on of my tree and decorations when I have them done ;-) plus anything else I can think of :)
Have a lovely week and I will be back in a week or so and hope to catch up with all your blogs and my emails and all the other things I am supposed to be doing. That should happen towards the end of the week and I really don't mean to be neglecting anybody in the mean time :)
