Christmas is coming....

I've been really busy with exchanges, buying Christmas presents and generally preparing for the festive season.

I've been very lucky to receive some lovely home-made Christmas cards from forum members in various exchanges.




I also got this lovely card from Sian!


I finally framed the birth sampler that I made for a family friend, although I did it myself, it didn't turn out too bad.  I've updated the photo under the "completed work" tab at the top of the page to show the framed picture and also added the cards that I've made as well.

I've managed to finish stitching OH's Christmas card, I just need to make it into a card.  I'll also add a photo of that once it's done.

All the presents are bought, just need to wrap them all up and then tomorrow do the food shopping then sit back and enjoy.

I'll have to try and finalise my stitching goals for next year, but I've got some definite plans for some of them.  I am going to try to actually do more projects for myself rather than doing everything for other people.  I'm going to set up a rotation to allow for variety, which should help keep the projects fresh.

I've added the updated Henry VIII to the "WIP" tab at the top.  It's really starting to come together, hopefully it should be finished towards the beginning of next year.

I'm not sure if anyone actually reads this, but.....

MERRY CHRISTMAS!
