Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to you all. I hope you are all having a lovely and relaxing festive season and making the most of time off, family etc.
Today has been a good day so far and has far exceeded my expectations as although I love the concept of Christmas, restrictions in drink and not really getting a break as I still have to dialyse tomorrow I was starting to feel rather Bah Humbug like. But today I woke up feeling alot more positive and determined to make the most of it and have really enjoyed it. I have had lots of lovely presents and spoken to my family on the phone so know my nephew is having a great Christmas and loved my presents which was great too hear.
I am off now to do some more stitching and watch the evening's television but again Merry Christmas and a happy new year to all my blog readers.

Christmas elf fairy

I have finished Mirabilia's Christmas elf fairy and I am really pleased with how she turned out. I started her a good while ago but due to overexcited kittens my stitching time was seriously curtailed but she is done in time for Christmas. Hooray!! She is on a Silkweaver hand dyed linen so I will also be entering her into their competition this year.

Christmas Shopping

I have finished it and in a record time too. I am usually a very last minute shopper but with having lots going on it has really focused my mind and I am all done. Now there is the small matter of wrapping and writing cards and I can relax completely knowing all is done.
However there is no real rest for the wicked as the OU have decided we absolutely must have an assignment due with a cut off date straight into the new year. It isn't too bad as I am working on it in parallel to the reading and managing quite well, but you would think they could have given us at least a weeks grace. I decided to miss the tutorial today as some of it was covered last time, the weather is fearsome and I am rather tired and a little stressed at the moment. I don't think any harm will come of it as I seem to be getting on ok and the tutor is very approachable by email if any problems should arise so a quietish day won't hurt for once.
Just to make you smile I took some pictures of Mack and Mabel this week and here is one of the very few of them not only together but actually keeping still.
