It’s almost here!

… Christmas, that is, in exactly four weeks! Are you ready? This year I’ve managed to buy all presents in November, so expecting to breeze through the season stress free  😆 As If!

These past few months I haven’t been able to get many stitches in at night. Blame it on work (Oh to win the lottery and spend the rest of my life stitching!) Looking forward to the holidays, when I’ll be taking a three week break.

I did manage to complete an exchange with my friend LisaV as part of the Stitching Between Friends group.

From LisaV to me

We met up at my place and spent a very pleasant afternoon together. Look forward to more of those, Lisa.

If there are any other stitchers living in Perth who would like to join us for a stitching get together sometime, please drop me a line. My email is pasomani at hotmail dot com.


In other Christmas stitching, I managed to finish this one…

Santa’s Christmas, Shepherd’s Bush
28 count linen 
DMC Threads as indicated on pattern

The backing fabric I’m intending for the finishing is shown below.  Will put it together as soon as I’ve stitched all those JABC buttons on and show you next post.

I’ve spent most of this afternoon admiring all the Christmas stitching being displayed on your blogs

Happy Stitching 😉

    I love your exchanges! I adore red designs and the piece you stitched for Lisa is beautiful. Love what she stitched for you too. I’m starting that with a friend on the 1st December:)

    Your SB finish is gorgeous.

    Great exchange pieces.

    I don’t get much stitching done at night now – the library, where I normally stitch, is not on the heating circuit and the living room (which is warmer) has lousy light. Must sort this out!!

    Love your exchange stitching!!
