Being indoors has meant that I have been able to start doing a bit of this
and yesterday saw a bit of this
because it was my sister's birthday. As her birthday is 25th November it acts as a marker for the month before Christmas countdown.
A job that has needed doing now for a while was finding and framing this embroidery I bought a couple of months ago from Etsy. I managed to escape the house for a couple of hours on Sunday and found the frame and yesterday it found a new home on top of the little ledge made by the tongue and groove that runs around our bedroom walls. I think she's so elegant, right down to her little tipped up nose. Please click on the photo to see her properly.
This morning the house has been very quiet with just me and Tilly here. I have tried to get through the household jobs as quickly as possible as I'm planning on a bit more wrapping, a tentative try at some stitching and a little time reading this
with a cup of tea and a caramel wafer, flavoured with cinnamon, placed over the top so it gently warms through and becomes all gooey and delicious.
