***** Merry Christmas *****
Back in 2008, I made Santa Sleigh's with Rachael and Luke. We have always had fond memories of them and every year since, we have said we should make them again. So this year we did! Here is a link to the original versions...Santa Sleigh's...and below are what we created today. Hopefully you can see some improvement in technique :) First time round, Rachael would have been 9 and Luke 7.
A photo taken from a strange angle which makes the kids look about 7ft tall! Our tree is actually 8ft high with a 12" angel on top! (The first ever (we think) of one of the cats being in the kids, tree and presents photo.)
Rachael cuddling David...bless. One of her presents actually reduced her to happy tears. One of the lads from school, no they're not going out, they're 'just friends', bought her a mug with one of the selfie's of Rachael when she met David Tennant. Bless...
Luke opening one of his Xbox games, not one I would have chosen! Sadly, it was an 18 so he will have very limited time on it daily.
This is the tree this year. You can't actually see many of my cross stitch ornies or the ones that have been gifted to me. I sit at the far end of the sofa you can see in the photo and tend to hang them to the side so that I can view them when I'm sat on the sofa.
And finally, I have been stitching the iStitch Advent SAL this year and finished it ON TIME! Can you believe that? I was about 6 days behind until Sunday but caught up and was ready and waiting for the final part to be released on Christmas Eve. Now how to finish it???
