The Ornament I Received and Other Things

Well as mentioned at the end of my last post here is a picture of the ornament that my partner sent me....the stitching and finishing is beautiful :)
I really want to learn how to finish off ornaments more beautifully rather than the slap dash methods I  tend to use due to running out of time.

The end of November MOTH and I had been together for 22 years and after dropping a hint the night before I got home from work and found these waiting for me.....
They were amazing!!
I was talking to my mum the next day on the phone and the conversation went something like this.....
Me " I had a wonderful surprise waiting for me when I got home from work yesterday"
Mum " Oh what was it ? "
Me " A large bunch of flowers"
Mum " Who were they from??"

WHAT THE LOL. So my response was "from the butcher" then she clicked and said "what did "N" do? "  LOL

Oh and finally here is a photo of the extent of my Christmas decorating so far....

I think I am going for the minimalist look this year LOL


  1. The ornie is sweet. Love the colors. I need to learn to finish. I try but I'm really too scared I'll mess up my stitching if I fail.

  2. Beautiful flowers from the butcher lol and I love the decorations.

  3. Minimalist works for me. It says it without oversaying it.

  4. That's about what we do to. makes it so much easier when it comes to be taken down..Lovely flowers! You're a good hinter!
