I have been pretty slack lately, well at posting that is, have been sooooo busy cleaning, painting, getting ready for Christmas, that I feel I am running out of time, & I started my Christmas shopping in March this year!!!! Anyway, its good to be back & I really wanted to show you what I made for Kylie at for the Secret Santa Honeypot Swap. It has been years & years since I have cross stitched & really enjoyed making these Chrissie Decorations for her. If you go to her blog you can see a photo of them on her tree, these photos did not turn out the best!
Dylan my youngest son liked the Chrissie tree so much her wants me to make him
one, another thing on my *to do list*!!

All wrapped up snugly in their Christmas box. Well this is a short & sweet one, has been stinking hot here today in the mid 30's & was out all day at the shopping centres (thank god for Air Con, really need it our sweet ole abode) getting the last of the Chrissie pressies, just 2 more to go & I am done, yessssssssss! Bought too much for Dylan (as usual) but he has his birthday Feb 14th, so have made a start on that at least.
Ok, that's it for now, the storm we were suppose to get has been & gone, has cooled down outside at least but not inside!
Be back tomorrow.
Enjoy your night

dear lyn....the cross stitches are lovely! i always did cross stitch.I have heaps of my stuff around the house...BUT lately start something and NEVER finish..
what i love about that it is easy..BUT ENDS UP looking fantastic/expensive..especially in a great frame!!
new years resolution..MORE X stitching!!
along with LOTS of other resolutions which i never manage to achieve!!
Take care my gorgeous friend...
it has been a pleasure "meeting" you and mel and other gorgeous gals via the cyber spacey stuff..
its funny how it does feel like we have known each other for years..even though we have never physically met and EVEN if I am the OLDER ONE!!
