this and that

Just a quick update on my week, which probably was as busy as yours.
Wanting to be little easy on myself this year, I am not doing any more Christmas stitching, not for this year's Christmas anyway.

Instead, I have started stitching the first picture of "Santa's Village", my new cross stitch project, to be finished by Christmas 2013.
After a frosty, foggy day and with the temperature outside -6ºC tonight, what a better place to be then by the fire stitching,

or do some Christmas baking.

As last year, my granddaughter's school let the children design their own Christmas cards and then had them professionally printed. But this year we are lucky to have 2 special designs, because our grandson started at the same school in September and made this lovely picture of a snowman and reindeer.

The next two weeks will be very busy, but do try to take some time out and relax a little,
Christmas will come anyway!
