Christmas X-stitch finished
Finished, including the edging. This lovely Mistletoe design came from the Just X-Stitch Christmas designs magazine that Maria (Dotty's Daughter blogspot) sent me after our recent meet-up in Newcastle Emlyn. It's been a good while since I last did x-stitch and I thoroughly enjoyed making this. I am now stitching a little house design from the same magazine.
I am feeling completely bejeebered today as I have been sleeping badly and last night just got a total of 2 1/2 hours' sleep in all, due to stress (our daughter is in a tizz at the moment) and then just after I HAD dropped off (after coming downstairs to read for an hour), my mobile phone jangled to tell me that the batteries were getting low. I never normally have it on at all, and had forgotten to turn it off. Then my OH had a nightmare where he was kicking and punching someone again, so I had to wake him up to stop the dream. I thought I turned my phone off, but, many hours later after I had spent half the night downstairs and seen 4 o'clock come and go and then 5 o'clock too, I was just dozing off again when it did it again. How it avoided being embedded in our bedroom wall I'll never know . . . but I had to get up and take it to where there was a light (we leave one on in my office so we can see our way to the bathroom in the wee small hours) and turn it off properly. How I am still awake now I'll never know!
Anyway, T is home tomorrow and I can take her mind off her worries, and we will make the Christmas wreath together, and go for walks etc. Her sister is just home for Christmas day and night because of work commitments, but we will make the most of our day of freedom.
I hope you are all sorted for Christmas. I'm nearly there . . .
