I am a really bad blogger this year... I have been organising myself ready for Christmas using the Planner I made at the beginning of the year. I am actually really pleased with how I have used it this time, much better. I am almost ready to post my cards - just need a few more stamps. I have got some gifts and they are already gift wrapped. I have quite a bit of the food shopping that can be bought early. Have been de-cluttering like mad and am ready for my Christmas decorations to go up on Sunday with the tree. As I said, I have been doing really well. I have a journal I made ready to start journaling December on Sunday.
I haven't done loads of crafting. I do have a couple of stitching things to show off. The first cushion I made with a rather lovely cross stitch round robin I did a few years back and found in the cupboard. I am really pleased with it.
Then there is this little one - a rather cute teddy design which my daughter keeps trying to nick off with. I am persevering with the sewing machine and it's fun WHEN I get it out. I have stopped getting in a mess with the bobbin and getting weird knots in the cotton, so I must be getting somewhere with it.
My favourite thing is decorating the Christmas cakes - will marzipan this week, then I can start to play!!!! I have some gift money envelopes I need to make. I have also had this idea to make my own selection boxes up this year. My kids never like half what is in them, always seems a pointless thing, but you have to give them a selection box, don't you? So I thought I would make my own box and fill it with their favourites.
Hope you are well and happy. Thank you so much for stopping by and reading.
