Where exactly has this year gone? I can not believe it. I am looking forward to 2017 with some changes just around the corner. I really hope that we find our forever home and that someone out
there is thinking about a move themselves and putting their property on the market, then we come along and snap it up, because it is just the right place for us.
There is lots to do here including some things for my Mum so this will be my last blog until January. I will of course be saying Happy Christmas to you all on Christmas Eve so please come and see and on New Years Eve I will be putting a message on here too.
How is all of your preparations going? Are any of you making some Christmas presents this year? I would love to hear about anything you are making....
I have started the wrapping and as you can see under the tree here at our home and the HQ of Homespun for the Love of Vintage it is getting in the spirit of Christmas well and truly. Next week I
will be doing more wrapping, making of mince pies needs to be done and a little tradition of ours ** I always make a huge cottage pie with cheese on top for the freezer and we love that between Christmas and New Year as something warming but not as rich mid week ...
I return to my blogging on the 9th Jan 2017!!!
Hopefully I will have a few bits to show you and of course I will show you my gorgeous red school stitchery sample picture that my husband bought for me ... I can not wait to open that. He found me the other day with a picture hanging nail and hook and Harry Hammer .... He looked at me with some horror ( as he does all picture hanging) and asked as calmly as he could muster ... ' What are you
I have basically sorted my sewing room as much as it can be sorted ... I have lots of fabrics and quilt pieces in my collection .. I know its a shocker!! The really useful boxes are stacked high but you can see carpet .. I can see in the boxes and so I can then see in almost a glance which box I need to get into, normally the one on the bottom!
I am looking forward to the break this year and so all that is left to say to you all is I hope you have some fun with your own Christmas preparations and that you have written your wish list for Santa, I have to write a book wish list as it is tradition here that I get a book bundle from my husband and other members of the family get to see my wish list for ideas too.
Take Care and if you have some time Happy Stitching! XX
Love Mr and Mrs Homespun xx
