Only 6 days to go!

Various Christmas cards - glad I've finished.

I haven't been around much lately due to a bad back and just the time of year - like the rest of you busy. I have been busy making cards and presents. I'm getting really excited and it is so magical with my little girl who is now 21 months.

Cross stitch wall hanging with a great hanger from Debbie Cripps online store.
Trial lunch for the big day - Cranberry, chestnut and parsnip nut loaf (yes I'm veggie!) Decided to combine it with another receipe Mushroom and nut wellington to make a hybid - as this was alittle too sweet and my DH likes pastry.

Finally Lauren has set us a lovely challenge over at LGS to come up with decorations - tree or bauble! Go and have a look at the other's work as it is lovely.
I've gone for tree and have had a great time covering myself in acrylic paint and bronze Perfect Pearls.. Added a little ribbon and some gems and seed beads to finish it off.
The template was from Evie S Things of Beauty.
Can't wait to open my presents as one of them is from Sugar Nellie as I was picked on the first day of Christmas - thank you.
Off to put up the tree - it's beginning to feel like Christmas.
