Jolly snowman couple.

This week has been Christmas Rota week!!! And here is what I have been working on. I mentioned in the summer that Stuart's brother, Carl, got married in secret! So I was unable to do them any stitching beforehand. This design is in the latest Cross Stitch Card Shop magazine and I thought it was very appropriate. I think I may make it into an ornament instead of a card, seems more special then.

There are some other nice designs in the same magazine so I am doing a lady carol singer next and have treated myself to some sparkly lurex aida to stitch it on.

It has been a stressful few days so I have been glad of some simple stitching to help me relax. Firstly we had a VAT lady in work for 2 days looking at the books. It all went well but I was glad when she left. Then yesterday it was the funeral of a dear friend of the family, Mary, who died last week after quite a long illness. So I am glad that Friday has arrived and I can look forward to the weekend, especially as I have booked Monday off too.

Next week is Henry week again. I am going to go back to stitch on Henry himself and get his legs done..... so he'll be able to stand up at last!

Hope you all have a good weekend.

Oh I think that snowman picture is so adorable! I have 3 friends who got married this summer and it would be perfect for them!

Do they have any similar designs in that magasine?
