Today is the first day of my summer holiday break, wahoo! I can't tell you how much I've been looking forward to the next few weeks.
We're almost all set for Christmas now too - most of the shopping has been done and pressies all wrapped. This year we'll be spending Christmas morning with my parents, then a visit to Glenn's parents and then it's back to ours for a big family get together. It's been several years since we had everyone at home on Christmas Day. There'll be about 25 of us all together and we'll be having the traditional Kiwi Christmas meal - ham, roast pork, chicken, potatoes freshly dug from my Dad's garden, and lots of different salads. Dessert will of course include pavlova! yum!
I had a lot of fun stitching this set of redwork ornaments from Annie Smith Designs, formerly Country Keepsakes. I've made these for friends and family.
I used a mixture of various red DMC threads on these.
See you soon x
