More finishes to share

Here's the pinkeep I made for Becky on the MAW board. At first I couldn't make my mind up about the design I was going to do, and then The Gift of Stitching appeared, and this design 'Birds of a Feather' by The Victoria Sampler seemed appropriate. I just stitched this part of the design, and replaced the heart between the stitchers with a bee, as that seemed appropriate. I also changed the colours and used only DMC. I was late posting this to Becky, but she was very patient with me, and then the package took an age to get there.




Then I've seen on the HOE blog that this package arrived with Georgie, and this one took over 3 weeks to get to it's destination, and I was late in posting this one too. I hope Georgie likes it and the gifts too.



This month has just flown by, and this week has whistled so fast I didn't notice it. I've not had time for the pc, and spent a couple of days shopping for something to wear for a night out, anyway that's been and gone now, and I finally got my cards posted. I just need to tidy up a few loose ends, and buy some vouchers and I'm done with Christmas. I need to plan a bit better next year.

I also need to get a picture of my SAL with Sally, I've just seen on her blog that she's finished - eek, I need to catch up.
