Christmas and crafting

I cannot believe I haven't posted for three months. Part of it is I haven't had a lot of time to sit down and write and another reason is I didn't have much to report on.

Finally I can post that I have finished Christmas gifts for both my mom and sister. I made biscornu's, scissor fobs and chair necessaries for both of then and finally finished them last night. I still need take pictures of them so that I can post what they look like.

These projects ended up being a lot bigger and time consuming than I first thought but once they were finished I was extremely happy. I know that they will both like them as they are something that neither of them would make for themselves.

Now to just find some time to work on a set for myself so that I have something to have around to look at that I have made. Normally I don't do a lot of cross-stitching but through these projects I have realized how much I have missed cross-stitching and how I need to get back to doing it a lot more.

My goal in the new year is to set one evening each week aside to cross-stitch and maybe work on one of the many started projects that I have.

Well it's now time to finish wrapping gifts and get ready for Christmas.

Merry Christmas and all the best in the New Year.

I will post pictures of the items after Christmas.
