Christmas Decorating Begins

Well it's getting to that time of year when old friends come out to say Hello.
Mr and Mrs Mouse came out to tell us the story "The Night Before Christmas" by Bunny Hill.

Cinnamon Stick Santa  joined in with Tartan Santa and Smiley Reindeer to check out the decorations. They came to live with us last Christmas when it was time for them to leave lovely Keryn at Christmas Creations.  (....p.s. I'm sure she has lots more lovely Santa's etc for adoption......)

Gail Pan's Elve's are watching over the stairs for visitors to make them welcome.

The birds are making sure the candles are ready and Woody Reindeer is on the lookout for Santa and his sleigh.

Happy stitching .....

I managed to work on "My Town Placemat" making the houses from the new Tilda book Homemade & Happy. Friday morning I woke up with a bad bout of hayfever so much so I pulled out of going to my sit and sew at Sewn and Quilted in the afternoon,preferring to stay indoors and have an early start on FNSI . Well no no no that didn't happen ,once the hayfever got to the point I could actually put my head down and see stitches without sneezing I noticed something in the corner of my eye. Thinking it was a thread I asked Jim to take it off for me,he said there was nothing there to go and flush my eye out and put some eye drops in. I did but it got uncomfortable and more threads seemed to appear, I rang my optometrist and made an appointment for the morning after being told that it sounded like eye floaters and should be looked at. So not much progress on my stitching. This morning after several eye test and drops he confirmed it was eye floaters in my eye, not serious and should get better on its own anywhere between a week to several months. But if it got worse and a few other things to look out for I was to go back. Hehe ......all I cared about was can I still sew...... The answer Yes ....ok then I am happy again:)))))

Thanks Wendy for hosting.

More blocks continuing on from Sewn and Quilted Friday afternoon group. Pop over and visit Cheryll at Gone Stitchin as part of Friday Night with Friends, if you'd like to see what some other bloggy friends stitched.

I did weaken and bought some more fabric while I was at Sewn and Quilted. Plus I did put a kit away that I fell in love with as well as a book which I hope to pick up next week.

Happy stitching......
