Happy Christmas!

I bought this shirt for my nephew for Christmas! Cute eh? So is everyone ready for Christmas? I finished work yesterday and am not back until the 4th January! WOooo Hooooo!!! Cant believe i have to go back in on a Friday (my boss wouldn't let me have the Friday off) but i wont think about that now, i have 2 weeks holiday! Ive got lots of stitching planned!!! We also got Sky Plus installed last week so now instead of 4 TV channels we have hundreds, im loving it! I especially love being able to pause/rewind TV, it's such a novelty at the moment :-)

We're going out for Christmas dinner this year to a lovely hotel near here. Will be a nice change. I can only remember one other time in which we ate out for Christmas. There will be 9 of us going. Its the same hotel where my sister was married and the food was so good at her wedding so i have high hopes for Christmas dinner too!

I have only one other gift to buy and then im done my shopping. I left it pretty late this year, Christmas seems to have snuck up so quickly. Havent wrapped anything yet, will do that on Christmas eve. I wish you all a very Happy Christmas!!!

Christmas took me by surprise this year, too! I can't believe it's now just 2 days away... didn't get near as much done as I had hoped.

Have a lovely Christmas dinner, and a very merry Christmas!

What a cute shirt, that will make people smile when they see it. It certainly sounds like you're well on your way to being ready for Christmas, I'm still working on trying to finish my to do list.

Your two earlier finishes were beautiful. The colors on the pincushion were so soft and lovely, and the skating santa made a wonderful pillow.
