I NEED TO GET WITH THE PROGRAM!!!!

I have the book for the Tis the Season as a very good friend sent it to me all the way from AU!!!  And---And---And-- I am going to do them--and I have been thinking about colors--BUT---my poor little mind hasn't made a decision yet---guess I had better "feed" it some more chocolate--then maybe it will come up with something "great"!!!!
Ahhh--Chookyblue--we can eat chocolate when we are stitching -- can't we?????
Hugs, Di

Isn't eating chocolate whilst stitching a requirement?

yes you must eat chocolate............but don't blame me if you put in kg's...........lol.........alcohol isn't advised as it makes your needle go wonky..........

LOVE the attitude! Have 10 days to find the perfect chocolate!

I'm sure chocolate was on the requirements list, & if it wasn't, it should be. Perhaps all the chocolate eaters should be working with brown fabric & threads so you don;t notice any chockie marks. :-)

I have also found that chocolate in any form aids all forms of stitching.
