If you follow other Kiwi and Aussie bloggers you would have already seen that we're experiencing some extreme heat temperatures right now. This hot weather has continued day after day for nearly two weeks but the last two days have been extremely hot. Our little town recorded 42 degrees C yesterday afternoon, not officially by the NZ Met Service but there were lots of unofficial temperatures reported in to our local radio station. All I say is thank goodness for our swimming pool, where we can chill off multiple times each day!
Usually I wait until February to begin my Christmas stitching each year but as I've already kitted up several Christmas designs I decided to get it underway on Sunday. First up, is Little House Needleworks' Season's Greetings. This is my second time stitching this lovely design. I couldn't find the recommended Cherry Cobbler thread in my stash so I'm using GAST Schoolhouse Red instead.
Each week I'll be participating in #santasundayxs, a stitch along you can follow on Instagram.
Hannah started a new school year on Monday, Year 5, and all the regular after school activities will commence this week too. She's very excited, and nervous too, about her first ever over night school camp coming up in a few weeks time.
It's been sometime between book posts so I'll work on one soon as I've read some fantastic books recently.
See you soon xx
