Christmas Update for 2019

Hello my crafty friends – First may I wish you all every happiness for the Christmas season, I hope you will all by able to share at least part of it with loved ones whether they be family or friends.

Now to what I have been up to – We started December with another couple of weeks in the sunshine.  Or to be more exact that was the plan.  However the first week although the sun shone we were mainly wearing coats as there were 40 mile an hour winds in Lanzarote.  The second week thankfully the wind dropped and the temperatures climbed a little higher each day.  It was wonderful – I love the sun and it makes such a difference to my pain levels.  If it was not for the fact I would miss my family too much then I would spend the whole of the winter away from this horrid, dark and damp weather we have been having recently in the UK.

In the last few days I have actually picked up a needle again and I am now almost to the bottom of the first side of the blanket stitch on Daisy.  I haven’t taken a picture as it really doesn’t look that much different from the last picture.  But hey ho its a mild return of my stitching mojo.

As I said last time I have been busy with cards.  These three are Parchment cards done during the last couple of weeks.  My first Christmas card for next year and a couple of February birthdays.   P1P4P3

and here are a few of the birthday cards I made recently.  This first one if for my son whose birthday is today.  Today is also the shortest day of the year so hopefully the days will be starting to get longer again from now on.

As this is really only a small selection of what I have made then you can understand just why I have not been around too much.

Thank you for your visit and for once more taking the time to listen to my ramblings.

Again I hope that you have a wonderful year and I do hope that this is not the last time I will see you during 2019.

As usual I send

Hugs to those who want or need them


About stitchingranny

I am one of those people who need to have busy hands so whether its stitching or papercrafting, I am always doing something. I also love being in the garden, though hubby does most of the work there these days.
