Am finally getting into the Christmas Spirit......

Ok first off Mum if you are reading this...STOP..... GO NO FURTHER YOU CANNOT READ THIS POST OK.....
Well know that is out of the way... We have had a real heat wave here the past week & as our little Cottage does not have Air Con she can get like an oven inside on hot days. With temps in the high 30's & not a lot of relief at night it was getting pretty exhausting, so imagine my joy yesterday to wake up to an overcast day with a cool breeze instead of the hot North Westerlies that had been blowing. I could actually sew, yes, so was up until 1.30 last night finishing off these small gifts for my family in NZ. We had all decided last year to cut out Chrissie pressies to each other as by the time you buy something & then post it it was getting way to expensive & also really limited us on the weight of the pressie etc. (I have always felt birthday's were more important anyway) Well I had been feeling lately that I just HAD to give something small so this is what I lovingly made yesterday....





A traditional red Chrissie Stocking for my Mum & Dad......
A pink Chrissie Stocking for my Sister & Brother In law.....



Lastly a black & white Chrissie Stocking for my Brother & Sister In law....
Well its a short post I have to get down town & post them off so they get them for the big day...
Oh & today the heats back, thinking I should have asked Santa for that Ducted Air Con....

Dear Lynn...

I've been thinking about you so much! I love your stockings...

Most I want to tell you this...

No matter where you are or what you are doing God ALWAYS has time to listen to you. He's never too busy to show up, never forgets your name, where you live, your birthday, your hurts or your fears. He love you UNCONDITIONALLY. There is nothing you can do to make him not love you.

Remember this sweet friend...HE will never allow what you can't bear. His grace is enough.

I love you~

HI Lyn what wonderful gifts. The gift giving thing does tend to get out of hand some times.
Every year they will be able to hang their stockings and think of you - so special
