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.

 I had a couple of my reserves waiting for me when I stopped by our local library earlier in the week:

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

Lovely design Katrina. I started on my first stitchery christmas gift today. Hope Miss Hannah enjoys her new school

That is a really sweet christmas design. I always mean to get some christmas stitching done really early. I like the idea of the repetition too, I could do lots of simple ones over and over as presents. x

I hope the high temperatures subside soon.
That's a cute ornament, I can see why you want to stitch it again!
Good luck to Hannah in her new school year.

That is sooooooooooo hot! What a cute design to stitch again. I put The German Girl on hold at my library.

It must have been extremely hot in Hawkes Bay. We had 29C in Wellington this week which is just about unheard of. I'm enjoying the cooler temperatures this morning and getting some work done at my desk.
