But its all part of the fun of the Christmas season, which I just love and this time in two weeks I'll be starting a three week holiday break too, yippee!
Over the past year or so I've not participated in any stitching exchanges so the other day I was very excited to receive this super ornament from Carol.
Carol has finished it off so nicely, the beaded edging looks wonderful. I can't wait to hang this on our tree, which Hannah and I are going to decorate this coming weekend.
Some of the ornaments that I've stitched over 2009 have been now given out to family and friends so I can now share a pic of the candy cane hanger that I made that was part of the gift tag on the ornaments.
I thought these were so cool, and they were very simple to make.

Yesterday my dear friend Kath celebrated her birthday so we invited her to join us for dinner and we had a lovely evening together. I'll be back tomorrow with some pics!
thanks for stopping by!
