I'm slipping up

I've been spending a wonderful number of hours reading all your blogs, and catching up with all your news, and whoops I've been slipping a bit in blogging myself! I've also been busy with Christmas shopping and secret stitching, so I haven't had many photos to leave you with.

My Christmas party went very well - we had it in a dingy art gallery in central London. It wasn't such a bad venue really - the dance floor was great (as was the DJ!), but the toilets (both of them, for a party of about 150 people) left quite a bit to be desired.

I've got Thursday off this week to finish off the last bits of my Christmas shopping (phew!) before we head off for our long break in Dublin on the 21st - I'm really looking forward to that (the break, not the Christmas shopping).

I still can't show much secret stitching, but I can share this Lizzie*Kate ornament with you - you may recall that I posted a photo of the finished stitching and was planning on keeping it for our tree. Well, I realised that I was one ornament short, so instead I have hurriedly finished it and popped it into the post for my great friend Nay who I know doesn't read this blog, so it's safe to share.

Merry by Lizzie*Kate

Stitched on 32ct Bourbon 'n' Cola linen from Country Stitch

Also, the ornament that I stitched for my in-laws has been safely delivered, so I can now reveal that one too!

Blackwork Angel from Prairie Schooler

Happy stitching and as ever thanks for stopping by!

Your Merry and Angel ornament are just perfect. I love them both. The stockings are great and so is your Christmas tree.
