My Tis the Season is on the wall!!! I whizzed through the stitcheries in plenty of time but as always I got bogged down with the finishing. My hand quilting is sooooo slow, I’m trying to perfect my big stitch quilting but I feel it’s too small, whereas my normal quilting is too big, lol, & my machine quilting is awful!!!!! But it’s up, & it looks good, so I’m happy with it.
Now you can see why I had the silver ribbon above & below each block, they’re presents & I’ve now added the bows!
I’m hoping the sun will come out tomorrow so I can takes pics of all the decorating I’ve been doing the past 4 days? 5 days, I’ve lost count. I usually knock it over in a day or 2 but I’m just not in the zone so it’s been a bit of a struggle.
I know others are struggling with all the demands of Xmas, it’s just a huge amount of work every year & if you’re not geared it can be a bit of a nightmare.
Well at least the house is done. I’ve written my Xmas letter, I just need to write the cards to put it in. I asked ds Rowan to read it for me to see if it sounded ok. He said, ‘Mum it’s crap, we’re the most boring people, we don’t do anything.’ I said, ‘Yes but everyone who reads it will feel better about their exciting lives & that’s the gift, lol!!!!!’
