Last of the Christmas bits

I have just finished The Snowman from the latest Card Shop magazine and think that'll be my last Christmas piece for this year. Although I have a few cards to show yet but need to wait until they have arrived to who they've been sent too.
Here he is - very cute but lots of white so I wouldn't want to do one any bigger!
Cross Stitch Card Shop issue 71
Last week I finished and framed another freebie but from an old Cross Stitcher magazine. I actually started this back in August on holiday in Spain - but only picked it up again a few weeks ago. He has a lovely red button for his nose!
Cross Stitcher issue 220
I have also stitched the letter R and L for the girl's Christmas sacks. I was hoping to sew some new sacks too but haven't had chance so I have used some old ones my mother in law made several years ago. Here they are being shown off by one of my Santa ornaments. -
World of Cross Stitching issue 171
I finally took my Family Tree piece in for framing yesterday, it'll be ready next Thursday. I can't wait to get it hung on my wall and admired over Christmas.
Tonight we have been to see Becki's college Dance Show, she was great as usual.... so much energy. The girls have nearly completed their first terms at college now and I am so pleased they have settled in really well and are getting excellent results. There's an Inter-College Christmas Party on Saturday night...... I have agreed they can stay until 12.30am...... late night for mom's taxi !!
Happy stitching
