It's Christmas!

First of all I want to thank everyone for their wonderful supportive comments on my blog and emails after my last post. Although I still can't quite believe it is happening, I am slowly coming around to the idea that in the end my redundancy might be for the best. Two major things I have noticed in the last couple of weeks are that I am not comfort eating anything like as much as I was, and I'm not getting horrendous indigestion everyday, so I think that could be trying to tell me something. I am still going to be sad to leave my job in a way (I'm now leaving on the 19th, not the 23rd), but I am looking forward to having some time at home to get myself together and decide what I want to do next.
Anyway, onto what this blog is supposed to be about, stitching, and some pics to show!
Firstly Amy received the ornament I stitched for her in the private exchange we did, and I received the most gorgeous ornament in return which is taking pride of place on my tree already.

Next up I've been in a stitched stocking exchange on the Tranquil Stitches BB and I've received my stocking and my partner has hers!

I've just finished off the last of my gift stitching and that will be going in the mail tomorrow, and then I can hopefully get back to stitching the ornament for our tree.
We go to Lapland a week today and I'm like a little kid at christmas with excitement! I'm also panicking trying to make sure we don't forget anything important, but I wouldn't be me if I didn't worry about something lol.
So if I don't get chance to post again before we go, I hope you're all enjoying the build up to this special season, staying warm and cosy in this cold and snowy weather, and still fitting in lots of stitching. Hugs.

It's great that you are coming to terms with the situation - it must have been a tremendous shock. Have a great time in Lapland and post lots of pics so we can share.

Enjoy lapland.

The ornies and little stockings look great. Love the gingerbread man one, but maybe that has something to do with my love of eating gingerbread men.

What a lovely Christmassy look to your blog Lisa:)

Lovely ornaments and stockings both sent and received.

Have a fantastic time in Lapland! Wish I was going too!

I hope everything turns out OK, maybe it is a blessing in disguise.
Great ornaments.
Have a great time in Lapland. Enjoy the festive season.

Glad you are becoming more settled in your mind & seeing some positives over the redundancy.
Lovely exchanges, both sent & received. Have a fantastic time in Lapland. :0)
