I hope you all had ...

A fantastic Christmas

We had a lovely time, simple but lovely :D

I think the biggest task was all the cleaning up and making sure nothing got lost in the mountain of wrapping paper lol Not many presents but they sure produced a lot of wrapping paper lol!! This was me by Christmas night ...

Christmas Jumper Photo :)  I just love this picture!
Baby Abby is trying to 'escape' us crazy people lol

A family photo using my 'Selfie-stick' that Santa
brought for me!!  Santa knows how much I love my photos
I think I need a bit of practise though!!
So, today I am going to finish sorting out my stitching list for 2016 then get some studying done!! (That's boring and not as much fun as stitching but hey ho it needs done!!) 

I have joined DUCJFC2016 in memory of Debbie.  This group has been set up and hosted by Linda. This challenge starts on 1 January 2016 so i had better get my skates on and finish my list!!  

Then do the usual ... out with the old and in with the new for New Year!!  I love going into the New Year with everything neat and tidy!!  Maybe I have a touch of OCD!!  

Have a safe journey into 2016 everyone!

Seeing Santa :)

Good Evening,

This evening we went up to the local Youth club for a Christmas party and to see Santa! (Ryan and Conor were 'bar-humbugs and didn't want to go!) 

Katie with Santa

Mark with Santa

Cara with Santa

We had an excellent evening!!  The youth Club is on the housing estate that we have moved to so it really is local ... all out neighbours!  I think we have 'hit the jackpot' with this house!!  Maybe all the stress was well worth the wait :) 

I am in the process of sorting out my stitching list for 2016. A lot on my list will be to finish off WIP's that I have on the go for me and the kiddies, start new projects that the kiddies have wanted for a long time and teacher gifts for end of the school year in June!!  

But for now ...... I think it is bedtime!!  

Goodnight all xxx

Oh what madness there has been here but hey we are nearly all ready for Christmas and are very excited!

2016 had better be a great year for us as 2015 was just a little too stressful for us all!!

I have had a play about on my sewing machine in between my Uni assignments and the children not being well!

I made Mark a tunic (well thats what its meant to be lol) as part of a Viking costume that he needed for school!!!

I must admit I am pleased with myself!! Not bad for the first 'proper' thing I have made!

I have also managed to pick up my stitching again .... whooop go me!! With luck I will be back to my normal self in no time ...

Take care
Love to all
