shortest day

...doesn't even feel like it is daytime, however am in a good mood
My reaons to be cheerful:
D's eye is healing well, went for a check-up yesterday and the doctor's very pleased!
have at last managed to finish something since the exhibit: two small cloths;
we will be eating at my sister-in-law's on the 25th and at my sister's on the 26th, so no cooking stress or planning;
apart from the 24th I'll have two weeks Holidays, the boys will be home around midday after two weeks of school/tests: they are Tired and Need a break! I'll be here with Tea & Cake;
went for a walk with Tungsten


'sun-moon & leaf' ca.19x27cm

'moon-star & flower'  ca.19x29cm

instead of a christmas card, I'll be sending these small cloths; the red one to my parents and the white one to Mia

thanks Nancy, what will you be up to? Will check out your blog and see. Merry Christmas and good health and happiness for the New Year to you.

Lovely stitching. I can see a bit of Jude's influence but also your own sensibilities, especially with colour and pattern. Hope you will be doing more in the New Year.
Merry Christmas from an equally gray and misty place on the other side of the world!
