Early Christmas Present and WIP Update

I’ve had the greatest pleasure of receiving a gift from a friend who has kindly sent me this sweet Christmas card and a hank of beautiful Gentle Art thread (Mistletoe)

The lovliest thing about this gift is that I don’t know who sent it (yet) 😕 A few hints… it came all the way from Belgium and it was from a stitching friend… Thank you my friend, for being so generous and thoughtful. I hope you will soon help me out of this suspense and let me know who you are. Promise I won’t tell anybody 😉

I’ve done a bit of stitching on Eve (La-D-Da) and she’s looking more gorgeous as the stitching advances. Let me show you how it’s going…

Not far to go now. Looking forward to seeing her hang up on the wall in my stitching place early next year.

I’m having family coming from interstate for Christmas. There’s lots to do and I haven’t even started yet!  I sense a crisis looming… I hope your preparations are progressing better than mine.

Happy Stitching 😀
