My mum arrived today to spend the day with us and we exchanged Christmas gifts as we wont see her again till after the holidays.
She was really pleased with both of the bookmarks i had stitched, here's the second one all completed but only just in time. I hope the ladies who receive them get plenty of use out of them, i did wonder what type of book they might end up in though ... its strange the things that go through your mind when you are stitching something for someone else.
DD was also here today and i was able to give her the ornie for her tree, i finally made it up this morning after putting the roast into the oven and preparing the veggies.
I decided to stitch Herald Angels by Prairie Schooler from JCS ornament issue 2003 as i felt it would compliment her other ornaments on the tree as she has some nice black and gold creations that she bought this year. She loves it and made a request for 'one every year please mum' to build up a nice collection for her tree, i'm sure i can accomodate that request LOL
Sally had a birthday yesterday and knowing her love of Just Nan, i decided on a floss bobbin holder using the ornamental letters chart. I hope you had a lovely birthday Sally and were thoroughly spoilt by your family and friends.
I hope you all had a good weekend too.
