Where is the Snow ?

Hi peeps , yesterday they said today would be very cold and we would get snow.
But so far no snow , just a beautiful sunny day but yes it was cold first thing this morning.

So what have I been up to this week, well we had our Christmas party at our club it was hard work but also enjoyable , I forgot to take some photos but it was another success and we all had a great time.

We have been out and about Christmas shopping, and coffee with my DD .
I have been busy sorting and wrapping presents with a ever growing family it is never ending .
I have also been writing out Christmas cards so I am getting there , now need to clean the house this week .
My DH has been painting the stair case white it was wood before but I love the white , now looks great.

I have been finishing off a few stitching Christmas ornaments but can't show you those yet .
I have sorted out more Wips  , some new and some old so can show you these.

Here are 3 WIPs I won't name them until I finish them then I will give the information about them
The middle one is a WIP from last year.






Also I have been busy working on this blanket



 My DH was a sweetie on Friday came home with these lovely flowers and some goodies.



                                         What a pretty colour .


He also brought me some Germany cookies , I love these at Christmas time .


 And today I made some Christmas muffins 



Two  missing already we couldn't wait  to try them and I must say they are yummy I will be making lots more for Christmas. 


 A  few more holiday photos .





 


He came to join us when we were having coffee.
Well have a safe week to all and enjoy your stitching I will be back soon.

  7. Your stitcheries are lovely. Loved to know how you made your Xmas muffins, they looked very yummy. Not too sure about your coffee companion. Looked a wonderful holiday place though. You are very organised to have Xmas parcels sorted and cards done, I'm procrastinating too much I think. Have a good week. Hugs Shirley

  14. I can answer your question, haha: the snow is here! It has snowed the whole night and this morning the snow ploughs were out for the first time - I think it's winter. Not that I would like it but well, what can you do against it, lol.
    Great WIP stitching. And I'm very curious to read more about your WIPs.
    You seem to be very busy preparing for Christmas. Enjoy your Christmas stitching.

  16. No snow here yet, but it is a LOT colder than it was a few days ago, it came as a shock! but at least the rain has stopped, so that ok :-)
    You are so organized with your Christmas shopping, I have made a start but nowhere near done!

    Lovely projects you are working on :-)

  18. Hi there June, goodies indeed! loving the blanket ,I wish I could but no matter how many times I have tried I just can't so I am so envious of your talent. We thought we may have snow yesterday the north wind was blowing and it was freezing. Cold today but lovely and bright and not a lot of wind . We are very lucky? if we get snow. I would love a really snowy christmas like in the good old days when I lived up north. Just for Christmas day , maybe even boxing day too. I cannot say I envy the people who have it in truckloads for ages. Glad your dinner went ok and look forward to seeing the wips progress.
