Hello friends , hope you are enjoying the holidays , It's been a mad few weeks,
a great Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
And now a few days to relax and be merry .
I love to see all my family and friends .
And exchange gifts and some festive TV.
Now I can't wait to get into some stitching .
I have already kitted up loads of stitching last Autumn and now I am free to get the big box empty in the next few months ha, before I start in my garden again.
So after we eat I will be stitching away with a glass of champagne , which my DD brought me yesterday tied to a large balloon .
But just wanted to show you some stitching I gave out to friends and some gifts received.
So first up a gift to my sweet friend Titty.
This was a free kit from one of my old Magazines.

It's been a good year and also a sad year for some , what will next year hold for us ?
I really hope it will be a good one for all , but I know there will be some sadness and challenges , but it's how we handle this .
Some times we are sent many challenges but it will make us stronger and I know if we have faith we can cope with all the negatives in life .
