It is so nice to be at home, relaxing and doing some stitching. Today the girls and Stuart broke up for Christmas, tonight the girls are at a friend's house and we have had a chinese take away and I'm on my second glass of wine.
The school production went well, we sold loads of refreshments and lots of raffle tickets. Becky was unwell again on Tues/Wed with this flu thing back again, she lost her voice! and had a really high temperature luckily she is much better now.
I managed a little bit of stitching on Wednesday and finished off Lest We Forget at 10pm last night when I got in! And here it is -
I am so pleased with this and I really enjoyed stitching it, I am going to try and frame it myself. It is a great way to commemorate a lost relative.
I have only done a tiny bit of Johhny Depp but I think you can see him starting to emerge -
If you fancy stitching him yourself it is a free pattern here - Johnny. I will try to do some more over the weekend.
Finally here is my Vintage heart stitching, not much to show yet, it'll be made into a heart shape ornament for the New Year. It is a very simple and quick stitch and I am working on this tonight.
I also intend to start my Somebunny stitching for Helen and Dave's baby, she is due in February but I better be prepared incase she is early! Over Christmas I will plan my new rota and intend to have a UFO night!!!!! each week.
Today I booked tickets to go and see the musical "Chicago" it is on at the Birmingham Hippodrome in June next year and I know the girls really love this so I have bought them for their birthday (which is in May). Something to look forward to.
I'm at work until Christmas Eve but will hoepfully get some stitching time in as I haven't got much else to sort.
Hope you all have a great weekend.Ginnie x
