December Update

Hello my friends! Goodness, what a busy month December has been. I've been swamped with assignments for most of the month. I'm glad to say they were all handed in on time and to the highest standard I could achieve. Fingers crossed for good marks! I'll find out after the Christmas break.

When I was spending my days chained to my desk, there was nothing I liked more than packing up all of my work at the end of the day and heading to my stitching chair. Although I haven't been blogging much, my needle has still been flying! I've got a finish to share :)

I finished Paws for Thought. This charming design was gifted to me from Cath. As it was mostly block stitching, it was the perfect stitch to relax with after a long day.
As soon as this one was finished, I couldn't resist diving into my stash! Another chart Cath sent me caught my eye. My grandmother loves sunflowers so I think this will make a perfect gift for her.

I like the shades used for the teddy bear, it's keeping things interesting.
I've spent this first week of holidays preparing for Christmas. I absolutely love this time of year. And now that I'm no longer working, I can go home for Christmas! Yippee! I shall be spending a week in Glastonbury with my parents and I'm so looking forward to it. Tonight, I'm having a meal with my housemates and we're exchanging gifts. I wonder what I'll get? So exciting!
I hope all of your Christmas preparations are running smoothly. I'll be back soon to share pics of our decorations :) I've seen some gorgeous trees on blogs recently, just lovely!
Best wishes,
