Merry Christmas everyone.....

I have finally finished work for Christmas and don't return until the 5th January...yeah...
Thanks to everyone who helped me out with my wedding dilemma, I think I had decided by Monday night to do another piece to be framed, so the next question was which one? It is not a traditional wedding it is a Hog Roast at a Hotel, so I wanted something modern and simple. After browsing many shop sites I had 3 options - LHN Always and Forever - Bent Creek Wedding Row - The Trilogy Wedding Spots. Rowyn solved my problem, she is currently working on Wedding Row for her own marriage and has agreed to lend me the chart when she is finished - thank you so much. So I am doing "I Do" now for Phil and "Wedding Row" for Helen. I liked Dani's idea of making it into a wall hanging so they can move it around with them..... I may do that but haven't made one before!!
I had a good night of stitching last night, I found a small fairy one Laura had started from my Fairy Cross Stitch book so decided to do some of that as I don't suppose she'll finish it. It is very sweet and I better do an R for Rebecca next!
I also gave Johnny 2 eyes .....all the better to see me with!! I like the way he is stitching up.
And finally I have been working on Dusky Dreams, I am still enjoying this even though it went away for a short while.... some french knots to come on the left though.... errrrr. Just love the colours in this.

So I am going to sign off now for Christmas, I have been blogging 6 months now and have loved every minute of it, I have made lots of new friends and gained lots of confidence in my stitching, so I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas, I hope Santa brings you lots of goodies.... and I will post again over the weekend.

I don't think you should have any trouble making a wall hanging - heck, you got the little bird cottage assembled with nary a glitch! LOL! Believe me, the wall hanging will be a cinch in comparison!
