There haven't been many posts written so far in December, but as usual I - a Christmas Freak - have been knee-deep in Xmas cooking, Xmas candy-making, Xmas wrapping papers, family Christmas get-togethers and birthdays etc etc!
When I haven't been doing those things I have been stiching like crazy in order to get all my Xmas gifts ready, but still I had to give up on finishing about four different project..:(( I really find it difficult to let my gift ideas go for the time being, and to save them for future birthdays and Xmases but it is something I have to learn I think. Stitching things take a long time and it isn't always possible to find that time in time for the deadline... how painful it may be...!
Still, my only New Year's promise will be to start my Xmas gifts even earlier next year...it seems it is not early enough to start in July lol.
Anyway, I wish you all a Very Happy Christmas, and I hope you find some time for stitching during the holidays:) That is my own plan for the Holidays - lots and lots of stitching time on some new fun projects just for me... and perhaps finish the Gingerbread House Sampler:))
I will leave you all for now with some Xmassy pics from the last few weeks...
