It’s never too early to be planning presents

I got back from annual leave yesterday at work to discover that my most recent online purchase had been delivered – yay!

I tend to get parcels delivered to work, rather than home, because with my work schedule and varying delivery times I never know if I’ll be home, and this is far easier to juggle.

This particular parcel included a number of stitchery projects that I plan on doing as Christmas presents (and will also count towards my goals of finishing some projects). I can’t wait to get started on them, but I really should finish off a couple others first.

Projects for my nephew, and a couple others to give to family members as Christmas presents.

Now all I need to do is stitch them up – and then go on a trip and find the matching fabrics to finish them!

In other crafting news, “Enjoy Today” is stitching up quite nicely – I’ve almost finished the flower petals and just have a couple left, and am moving onto the satin stitch.

The satin stitch looks fantastic, but god is it frustrating!

    • Isn’t it funny how we just seem to trip and buy things? Thank you – I’m relatively new to this type of stitching, so I’m loving the way it is turning out. Yes, it is definitely a major pain in the backside, and both this project, and the accompanying one I will be doing later once I get the patter is just *filled* with satin stitch. Sigh!
