FNSI December

I did get some stitching done for FNSI.....


the centre block for the stitching is only 4" square... it amazes me how long it takes to do all those backstitches.... I'm going to need my sneaky 'downundersecondfnsi' evening..... 

we have cricket on (Australia vs New Zealand) so lots of stitching time today

there has been lots of this 'can'tseeuntilthefatmanintheredsuithasbeen' quilting ...


Mr Postie came by yesterday bearing gifts....

I won a stocking give-away from Shez this week... look at all the loveliness inside....


and Michelle sent me one of her cutest snowman ornaments....


and a lovely diary (which Hubz can't pinch) from Cheryll,


... thank you so much ....

I am pleased to say that Hubz was finally persuaded to climb up the ladder in the workshop and pull down the trunk that 'just has old books in' - amazing what we found....


the missing decorations... yippee.....

(in case you are concerned that picture is taken outside in the garage... my house is not that messy ...... today)

Why red wine is important at Christmas....


Have a lovely weekend.....

Ohhhh looks like Santa has come early to your house, all those lovely goodies. Glad you found the decorations, and, err, my house looks like that all the time!! It's all the cotton that I accidentally on purpose throw on the floor because I can't remember which side the waste bin is on, and who has time to look!!!!.....LOL

Cute cartoon. I won a stocking too - can't wait to see what I get, although it will probably be January by the time it arrives. Yours looks so lovely.

The snowman looks great...had a laugh at the fat man in the red suit...lots of lovely goodies there...am a bit disappointed about the cricket, thought the Aussies had the ideal opportunity to take advantage and they didn't, darn...

Love your butterfly garden!
Nice backstitched block.
You have received some lovely gifts and glad you found the 'hidey hole' for the Christmas decos. You should put them back there so you know where they are next year ;P.
Lol, now I know why I need red wine each Christmas, so I don't need to worry about what I dress in as I'll still look festive!
Cheers,
