My Love/Hate Relationship

I love this time of year for the most part, the christmas lights going up, christmas films coming on the tv, christmas music, but then there's getting the house ready, writing cards, wrapping presents etc. I'm really stressed at the moment with everything I've got to do, lots of last minute things to buy, cards to write and pressies to wrap before visiting some family at the weekend, work, and looking after a 3yr old. I feel to be running round in circles and not getting anywhere right now. I have managed to write all my cards except the special ones that I've still got to buy today and wrap most of the presents for the family we're visiting this weekend, so I suppose I'm making progress.... Ho hum, hopefully after this week things will get better.
On a stitching front I've finally finished my first biscornu!! This was a kit I got from Mary Kathryn's website which is a free chart from Dinky Dyes for buying a skein of their silk. The kit included the 28ct fabric, and I added my own beads and flower buttons I had in my stash.
I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it yet. I'm thinking of giving it to DH's nan as an extra christmas present, but not certain yet, also thinking as it's my first I should keep it for myself.
Don't know what I'm going to work on next. Think the next few nights will be taken up with xmas preparations, but I do need some downtime so will have to think about it. Need something to take with me visiting this weekend....
