I have done very little sewing so far this week as I have been very busy!!! Monday night was our Parent Support group meeting at school, when we got back I managed just a small bit of cottage stitching. Tuesday night was Christmas Tree sorting and decorating, which took a while so again just a little bit of roof was done later in the evening. Here are some tree pictures... very difficult to capture on a photo but it does look pretty. Need to hurry up with the cottage I have picked a spot for it to go near the top.... will aim to finish it this weekend!
Wednesday night I met up with my friend Stacey and we had a drink and a good gossip, so no stitching what so ever.
Thursday night I went Christmas shopping again as M&S had a 20% off day and I wanted a new coat/jacket I had seen there. It is lovely - bright pink..... will have to take a picture when I wear it! The queues were bad so it took longer than expected, when I returned I did some of mom's gift stitching. Here is the progress on this -
It is a pretty red rose to go in a compact mirror.... I must work hard on this but I am finding it slow going as it is on very small count material! Again I aim to finish over the weekend!
We were supposed to be back at the school tonight to help with the production set painting... but I am so tired of not being at home this week.... and I have been very busy at work that we have decided to give it a miss. Also Becky is unwell, she has the cold that Laura had last week. I do feel gulity about not going to help as they rely on us as so few others get involved.... but we can only do so much. So instead I want to have a nice "stitching in front of my new TV night".
I am abandoning my rota for December also and will just stitch on whatever I feel like....... I may even start Pirates Creed. Stuart has ordered me some stuff for Christmas from Sewandso...... how exciting... can't wait to see what he picked (I did give him a rough idea of what I may like!!!)
Well now I better go and feed Marshall he is hanging around wondering when his tea is coming.
Have a happy stitching weekend....Ginnie x
