LHN for Myrna


This is what I stitched for Myrna on the specific designer exchange, I chose to make a needlebook and use the 'apples' design, I was pleased with how it turned out as I wanted it to look countrified and rusticy - if you know what I mean. So I used gingham fabric and spotty fabric to line it which toned in well with the design colours and I also added the tiny wooden heart on the inner pocket and used a yellow gingham ribbon to close it with.




I have had some good news (for a change lately) and I was successful with my job interview and so I start my new role on January 7th so I was delighted as you can imagine, so as we were away over this weekend - we went to Durham to Marks sisters we all went out out for a lovely dinner last night. Whilst we were away I managed to get all my shopping finished except for one, and I also got my Christmas cards so tonight I will sit and start writing them.

I managed to sneak a lovely visit though only short to mums today and we exchanged presents so they are sitting now in the lounge in readiness for Christmas day I also saw Helen and the children which was great too.

I've to download some pics of my Christmas decorations later today or tomorrow so I'll post them up through the week, and hopefully I will have a couple more finishes and some pics of some the ornament previews you saw.
