He will be checking it twice!

Silent Night 
Holy Night, all is calm
All is bright.

Well I had the very best time in London, not only did we meet up with some great friends who used to live in Henniker in New Hampshire for a meal one night but also we went to the ballet as you know to see ' The Nut Cracker' .... Oh my I had such a wonderful time.  Great friends and Great times.  The care home phoned me when I was away and I thought oh dear and with a shaky hand I answered.  It was not what I thought at all ... I had won first prize in their draw and had to pick up a huge hamper this week.  Not only filled with goodies like champagne, Christmas pud, Stolen, Sweets, chocolate Santa but also white china plates and knives and forks and so so much more!

It is now only a few days until Santa arrives and I hope you have all made your wish lists for all the
stitchery bits you would like or indeed a sewing or quilting book.  As you know I always get a beautiful book bundle from my gorgeous husband and it has become a tradition.  I love to see it under the tree and after the big day I get to sit by the fire and relax with my head in the books with a glass of something ...

I have now stopped work for this year and I am going to have a few weeks of with family and friends and I will be back here  on Tuesday 9th January 2018. I will pop in here to leave my new year message and I hope some of you will join me.

All that is left to say is I hope that you all have a wonderful Christmas with family and friends and always at this time of year we think of those we love who just can not be with us for what ever reason.  I always think of my absent family and friends on Christmas morning when I creep down and light the fire and turn on the tree lights before the house is awake.  I make a warm drink and think about those who I love dearly and are not with me anymore.  I miss my absent family very much and my Mum is included in that.  I will be with her on Christmas Eve and also go on to my Dads grave to make him festive.

Thank you all for your great support in 2017 with kind words of support for me and my Mum and for supporting my ramblings and work.

I hope you all come back to join me next year, while you do I will continue on here.  I enjoy talking to you all.  I hope I inspire you all to be creative and all that remains for me to say is Have a very Happy and Peaceful Christmas and as always Happy Stitching! XX


  1. Have a good Christmas with your friends and family. I know what you mean when the care home rings, my heart goes into my mouth when I my dads home rings
