I don't have fireflies in my garden - which is a shame... only cats, bees, a dog and the odd dragonfly!! So please settle down with a cuppa, put your feet up and enjoy!

Christmas Stitching Round Robin Style

We may be still 2 months away from Christmas, but I have already started my Christmas stitching.  Some online friends and I have been partaking in a Round Robin (RR) over the last few months and now as October comes to an end so does our Round Robin.  It has been very exciting waiting for the parcel to arrive each month.  Now I am just waiting for my RR to come home.

The design I chose to start off my RR was "Christmas Chickadee" by Valerie Pfieffer. I found the design in Issue 118 of The World of Cross Stitch.

This Round Robin has been a lot of fun to do and I am looking forward to getting my finished RR back from Yvonne.  I will post a picture of the completed RR once received.

What a way to spend a Sunday afternoon.....

Well, what started as a quick "play" this morning has turned out to be an all afternoon thing....

I decided after seeing a number of different Crafters' blogs that I would do my own.  What fun you can have once you start.

This blog is still a work in progress and I will no doubt change it a few times before I am happy with the layout, but it is at least off the ground and published!

So now that I have done my first page and my first post, it is back to seeing what else I can add.... the mind boggles or should that be blogs!!!
