"Tis The Season to Stitch......

I think I should celebrate with a little pre-Christmas drinkie.....  it's getting cooler in the evening now so a glass of mulled wine may go down well..... I might even have some Christmas mince meat in the cupboard.....


I haven't stitched such little pictures before - I am finding it a bit of a challenge.... a challenge is good isn't it?  Maybe I need some brandy butter with the Christmas Mince Pie
