Well the rush and panic leading up to Christmas Day is now all over.... today is the day to relax... unless you are like us and now have round 2 of Christmas happening today! We have Hubby's son and son's girlfriend coming over for lunch today as they spent Christmas with the girlfriend's parents, so as soon as I finish this post it will be time to start preparing Christmas Lunch part 2!!
I hope that everyone enjoyed their Christmas Day... and that the Christmas Stitching Fairy was kind!
Last time I posted I promised that I would show you my new needle minders...
First up we have some new ones that I ordered from Gina (Gina's Unique Needleminders).
These beauties are from Nifty Needle Nannies... Julie has some very different ones to what I have seen on other FB pages and I just could not resist!
I have no idea what I will do with this many minders as to be honest I don't really use them for my needle as I have a magnetic strip that sits on the top of my needle box and I tend to put the needle on that with the needer threader.... but they look pretty and they are actually useful for holding the chart when I am stitching on my larger pieces :o)
Remember I mentioned a couple of times that I was waiting for a package from Russia and I thought it must have been lost in the mail as it hadn't arrived... well guess what? It must have been on a very slow boat from Russia to Australia as 4 1/2 months after posting it finally arrived in my post box!
Lots of lovely goodies from Lena... just in time for Christmas! Thanks Lena - it is great to get the package especially as I had given it up as lost some time ago :o)
Well that's it for today... I am going to try and spend some time over the last days of 2015 planning what my stitching will be for 2016 especially seeing as I am planning to do the January Challenge again!!!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and a nice quiet and calmer Boxing Day.
Til next time, happy stitching
