Yesterday morning I spent a bit of time preparing for our Christmas dinner. We were expecting about 10 people, which is a smaller group than we are used to. So, I peeled the carrots and potatoes…..
….made cranberry sauce…
…made lots of dressing….
..and put the turkey in the oven.
I still had an hour or so before our guests were supposed to start arriving. So I decided to use my time very wisely. I started putting the finishing touches on the left-hand side of the border. I added the tiny yellow centers to the roses. And I added the red berries.
I added the yellow circles to the blue flowers.
Then the guest started to arrive. So, now I’ll have to find a bit of time to stitch these tiny pieces in place! Hope you are enjoying this holiday season and you are finding a little time to stitch!
Til next time….

Very wisely indeed.:) I was so frazzled that dinner was almost completely done Christmas day before my daughter pointed out that we had forgotten the potatoes!!
Wishing you, your family and friends a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year..and from your pics a fabulous Christmas meal. We are lucky enough to be England for the holidays with the added attraction of snow!! A far cry from my sunny Cyprus lol. Will be able to pick up some material here in the uk which I struggle to get in Cyprus ready for your new blocks next year, no pressure Kerry (joking)
