It seems to me it's becoming quite the habit-not being able to find the time to blog!
Believe me, that is not my desire, but just the pace of life- but I am glad to be fit and well enough to be busy:)
Why is it , that every Christmas there always seems to be something to hang over me (like a headache) which keeps me from enjoying my favourite time of the year to the max? I sooo love stitching all the yummy patterns, but I need to be at peace with myself in order to do so! However this year, a job has been advertised and it is keeping me from sewing-you see, every time I think of stitching, I feel guilty that I should be preparing for an interview.....why is nothing straight forward?
Anyway, it's Monday and for my sanity, I am going to both blog AND stitch!! After entertaining yesterday ALL day, I'm entitled to some 'me' time, but so far it's not going so good! Poor 'son' is off school with his asthma again-we have just returned from the Dr's with yet another antibiotic and 'babe' is all put out and causing a rumpus that her tv has been taken over so early in the day..... but I'm going to post this today!
I'm afraid that I don't have as many finishes as I would like to have:( but maybe next year.....
This is an all wool snowman pillow that I got as a kit from Primitive Gatherings
I think this penny tree mat is a 'Lakeview Primitives' pattern
I am so enjoying punch needle at the minute-simply because it is something you can just pick up and set down as and when. I have seen alot of old sheet music ideas about blogland recently, so decided to use that as the background-unfortunately the camera is not doing it any favours!
Finally, on Saturday evening (after spending all day preparing for guests) I stole an hour in my sewing room and cut out this little wool mitten-the free pattern from the blog hop by Stacy (Buttermilk Basin). My intention is to have it blanket stitched before this night is out:)
I will leave you with a few bits of Christmas decor and hopefully will be back with some more soon.....
Hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful time of the year and getting time to do all they want to get done. Looks like I will be housebound for this week, so I think I am going to be FORCED into Internet shopping, just hope postie doesn't delay:) Have I time do you think???
