Countdown to Christmas

It’s two weeks to Christmas – need I remind anyone?

The whole family (myself, DH, DS, DD and her BF) is going to Ghana to visit the rellies for Christmas. We leave on the 21st of December, chill out two days in Dubai and get to Accra on he 24th. We’ll be there two weeks and hope to be able to slip in a bit of tourism in between spending time with relatives. I’m really looking forward to the trip, as it’s been four years since my  last visit.

I haven’t done a lot of Christmas stitching this year, but I do have a few to share with you and to help you get into the Christmas spirit.

Happy Stitching 😉
