Parcels Have Left the House

Secret sewing is all finished - phew - and the last package was posted this morning.  Can't show photos yet but there was a lot of activity in the sewing room over the weekend and the embroidery machine was running non-stop.

Last week Christmas cakes were baked and taste-tested:

This is the first time in 34 Christmases that we dont have a real tree - was a big deal for me to buy a fake tree.  A mystery parcel arrived.  Elizabeth sent me a special candle so the house would smell Christmassy when I arrive home from work.  Even unlit the scent is really strong.

Saturday week ago the stitching girls came for lunch - I have no photos of the day - only took one and it's too dark.  We had such a lovely day and we did a very little bit of stitching.  That night my friend, Lynell, and I went to the basketball - a great night when the Hawks win (especially against the Kings).

Selfies still not great but are improving.
There will be lots of photos after Christmas when the parcels have been opened.  Another busy week with pre-Christmas activities.

Hello Lynda,

Such a pretty machine embroidery decoration. Great to hear you had a wonderful day with your friends. We haven't got a tree this year either, Lucy went to get it out of the cupboard and it wasn't there. We then remembered we threw it out last year.
Enjoy the rest of the Christmas preparations.

Happy Monday.

Hope you get everything done so you can relax over the break!
