Last Monday i met up with Clare at our local shopping centre as she was doing a spot of shopping there. We spent a lovely hour chatting and drinking hot chocolate (that was me!) before we were thrown out as they were closing. I'm looking forward to going over to her local church this weekend to see the Christmas tree she is decorating with the stitched ornaments she's received.
This little one is by Lizzie Kate from 2000 JCS ornament issue, it appealed to me because of its simplicity, so i just finished it off simply with the jingly bells.
These 2 gifts used designs from an old magazine. The noteblock i bought from a bargain store, unwrapped it and tucked the stitching down the front adding a small pen. I then rewrapped it in clear plastic. The coaster is for DD's BF's gran as she loves to receive something handmade and i like her to have a small something to open when they visit her on Christmas day.
SAL stitching ... i did do a small amount on The Tea Room this week but not enough to warrant an update pic.
A very kind person seems to have shared their 'germs' again and have been feeling under the weather, this cold bug sure does seem to hang around and there was me thinking i had escaped the worst of it. My day was brightened today as i received a lovely handmade card and little gift from Karan, the gift has been sent to santa but i'll take a pic of the lovely card so you can see it next time i blog.
Till the next time *atishoo, cough, splutter*
