Just a quick post about what I have been up to over the last week.
So I am going to start with where I have got to with the Lizzie Kate Holly and Hearts Sampler.
I am now onto part 2 of the 3 part project and would have got a little more done if I had not had a visit from the FROG !!
Last night I finished stitching my first Christmas ornament for this year. Every year I like to make a couple and add them to my growing collection ready for my tree which this year I intend to put up on the 12th December. I just need to finish the ornie off and need to purchase some black felt as I want to complete the design as it was on the chart book. It is from Book 103 Blackwork Angels by Prairie Schooler. I stitched it on 28ct white Jazlyn using DMC and Petite Treasure Braid.
At the beginning of last week I had the desire for cake as it was really cold. So I made a very nice Carrot Cake with Quark, Honey and Orange/Lemon juice filling/topping. I have decided this is what I will cook for Christmas as none of my family like traditional cake and this is easy enough for me to do as I don't bake very often. Below is a photo of me enjoying said cake with a lovely cup of tea.
On Saturday we went to Bath to look at the Christmas markets it was a lovely day out and the displays were great. It was really busy but I am glad we went. Below is a photo of the river in Bath I presume it is the Avon but not 100% certain of that.
