Thank you Miss Beatrix for the pyrex post it truly lifted my spirits!
Iv'e been keeping myself out of trouble by doing a
I started the stitching marathon at the start of last week when I decided I was going to put my camper blanket to one side
Threading in ends is never an enjoyable experience

They are for a lovely friend who also happens to be little H's Godmother (I hope isn't reading this!)
They will be carefully wrapped and put into her Christmas stocking along with this.
I have made a few other bits and bobs which I will be giving as gifts so for the moment I will keep them under wraps!
in between all this hand stitching I knew I needed a new apron for work so out came the dreaded machine and in about 2 hours I managed to cobble together something resembling an apron.
A couple of hours is pretty good going for me so I was feeling pretty pleased with myself and a few buttons hand stitched on here and there, I was more than happy with the finished result, sadly no photo at the moment as the apron is currently in the washing machine...lets just hope it survives!
Hopefully by the end of this week I will have completed another Christmassy project for my etsy shop ......so many projects so little time
