Christmas lights

I hope you have all had a great Christmas - I know I did. We spent Christmas Day at our daughter's and today we spent at our son's house. I have eaten far too much so it's now back to my healthy eating plan as I do not want to put back on the weight I lost! Before we came home this evening we drove around looking at the Christmas lights. The above display is alongside a river and is really pretty. Usually the house on the bottom right hand corner picture has a snow machine going but we must have missed it tonight. Yes, I know some of you have the real stuff but it's ages since it snowed here so we have to rely on a machine.  

I have found time to stitch and yesterday I put the final stitch in Hannah Beeby although that's not quite true as I have now decided to hem stitch it, so you could say there are a few more stitches to go in! I also made a start on my section of Rowyn's QFRR and part-stitched on a private exchange. No pictures to show as I want to complete the hem-stitching on Hannah before I show her again although I will take a picture of Rowyn's sampler either tomorrow or Monday. I am planning a new start for the New Year but I am undecided as to start Beatrix Potter Quaker sampler or to start my re-stitch of Merry Cox's Diminutive Sewing set. Both are kitted up so it could be either although I am completely changing the alphabet on the MC project so I will see how this goes. And I really have to decide on something to stitch for my blogoversary draw too so don't forget to check back for the draw posting!

We have visitors coming tomorrow so I don't expect to get any stitching done tomorrow.

Thanks for visiting
Take care

    Glad you had a nice Christmas Carol.

    Love the photos of the Christmas lights. Our street is fast becoming the most popular street in the region for Christmas lights.

    Someone sent all the residents a joke letter this year saying they were from the Civil Aviation Authority, and the lights were causing havoc with flightpaths and people had to turn them off. LOL

    They are pretty bright though, you can see them for miles down the valley.

    Congratulations on putting the last stitch in Hannah. I'm new to blogging but very old to stitching, so I'm learning a lot from you and some other bloggers. Thanks for all of the inspiration!

    Carol I'm glad to hear you had a lovely Christmas!

    Yup I'm back on plan as of tomorrow as well. Actually I stayed on plan as best as I could, counted on every bite that I enjoyed and I'm moving on!
