|The final, final project, castle style|
During this stressful time...I did a little Christmas decorating and it sure put me in the "spirit" of the season and along with my final project I am thinking a tartan Christmas theme this year, celebrating what we are all about. So I now I need to add tartan, more tartan...or...I will finish later.
The star and figgy pudding bell hanging under the mantle
were Esme's additional touch. They will be replaced with stockings soon
and take their rightful place elsewhere.
I am putting my knitting (that was in waiting) and my Floral Gifts cross stitch on linen ( yikes) in little tidy packages to take on a nice little trip somewhere warmer and quieter than here. I am looking forward to working on those and seeing the results.
It will be fun to continue with the decorating once my little trip is over...and I will be planning my moves whilst I am away, but I might need to come back to some snow to give me inspiration! In the meantime we have the advent calendars to plough throw each day...finding the number is a chore in itself but the countdown with little sweet things is fun...for the kids, for the kids!
