One more day left of January!

I decided to make my stitchery into a mini, and am pleased with that. I do love these soft christmas colours!
I hate the shadow I get taking photos under the lamp!

Here are some Christmas gifts I haven't shown before.
2 handtowels for my mother
 and 2 cushions for my daughter

Yesterday was FNSI with Wendy and all the girls in blogland. Thank you Wendy for organising us all.

I finished my Christmas stitchery which is the January work for the Stitch-A-Long I've joined this year. We're going to make the Natures Journey by Anni Downs. I hope I'll get my pattern next week! The stitchery is a free pattern by Anni Downs.

Friday night

As I told you it was FNwF and I did some knitting on my Ursula cardigan by Kate Davies. I don't know why but it has turned into a UFO because I haven't worked on it since August!
Thanks Cheryll for having us all over! Do you want  to see what everyone was working on, go check it out HERE.
Before that I went to the stable. I have to show you a photo of Misty, she really enjoys her bite of apple. Do you see her tongue? She can be like that for a long time, sucking on the apple like a baby taking the bottle, and she makes that sound too!

Gorgeous gifts and FNwF!

I told you I had got a parcel from the lovely Cheryll, the best swap mama ever, and here it is!
I got it because I missed out on the Mini I was supposed to get from someone that didn't send it or replied to the emails from me or Cheryll. I just hope nothing has happened to her!
Back to the gifts. The Mini is perfect, just what I like, a day at the beach in Summer. A beautiful calender for the new year with a different bird for every month and a fabric with cockatoos on it. I love birds you know!
Thank you so much Cheryll, I love it all!

And tonight Cheryll is hosting FNwF, go HERE if you want to read about it and maybe even sign up for it!
