Almost December !

Hi Friends ,
That's another week that flashed by far to quick.
Well I am doing good so far , I seem to be doing all my Christmas jobs in order .
I have started to decorate the house inside and it's looking nice and cosy .
I had time to do two quick designs but no finishing until the new year apart from one gift I want to get ready , but still no pressure , I am loving my new approach to Christmas I am writing a few cards a day and wrapping a parcel up each day.
I wrote hubby a food list for Christmas  and he seems to be doing this  in order ok.
So we will see what next week looks like .
We even had a leak in the drive way and had a nice man come yesterday to fix it and he had to turn the water off , but no problems there , and we are back up and running again.

I did do a happy dance yesterday all around the house , our friend mouse sent me a gift and wanted me to open it , and wow it's a bag holder for my SAL it's so pretty , I have seen them on some blogs but never had one myself and I was thinking about treating myself to one soon, so little mouse must have heard me talking to my hubby , see you never know where this little mouse gets to.

Also today and the next few weeks I have some paper charts from my Gold magazine to give away .
If you like it let me know and I will put your name in a hat and sees who wins .

So first up my two little quick stitches.

                                This was from a magazine cross stitch crazy designed by Lesley Teare 

Sorry the light was not good when I took the photo of this one called " This is my Joy "
                   By LHN , I stitched it over one on a 28 ct it is very tiny.
                                                                        And My SAL

                       Not much stitching on my SAL this week but it's growing each week.


                                                             My lovely gift from Mouse

I love the colours .

It holds my large hoop and all of my SAL  items 
and look at how pretty the inside is.

                                                And the inside of this little bag '
                                            This also holds all of my stitching tools.
                                           Did I already say I love it ? Thank you so much Mouse.    


                                                            Give away .
Now from the gold magazine this chart is for cat lovers  a  Christmas pillow the chart is in full colour
and will be a dream to stitch  "Called A  Very Cosy Christmas " by Carol Thornton
I just won't have the time to stitch every design from this mag , but this is too nice to throw away .
I have a couple more soon to give away. Let me know if you want to stitch it , I will post it anywhere
so it's open to all who follow me on my blog ,  I will let you know the winner next week.

                                         And here is my dresser still a little to add yet .
