Hard to believe that Christmas Day is just around the corner. It is quiet here this morning so I thought I’d grab the chance to do a quick post to wish everyone a lovely Christmas and share some stitching before Christmas rather than after it.
My plans for stitching more PS Santas took a back seat from August onwards but I did finish five in total and in time to have them out on display.
This is the fifth one that I put the final stitches into a week or two back.
In a comment on my last post Siobhan mentioned my PS Twelve Days of Christmas which I stitched through 2011. Last Christmas I had them displayed on a wreath (you can see it here if you want to take a look) but with everything else going on this year that didn’t happen and I just have them displayed in a bowl.
My mum had her hip replacement surgery on Thursday. She has come through the surgery and the doctors are pleased with her progress but she will be in hospital over Christmas. Meanwhile my poor dad has developed shingles and is miserable with it. That has meant that he hasn’t seen my mum in a week now and I know that the two of them are missing each other especially with my mum going through surgery.
Our house is full again as our two sons and daughter arrived home at different times yesterday. When DH and I got back last night it was lovely to walk into the house and have everyone here. Christmas is going to be a little different for us this year but whether we sit down and eat turkey or not (we won’t be!) is of little consequence. Far more important is spending time with loved ones.
Wishing each and every one of you a lovely Christmas in whatever way you spend it.
Until next time……
