Will this be you?

Well it certainly won't be me!!
I think I mentioned last time I was going to stitch Gone Sledding by The Sampler Girl .It was a quick stitch but I only got it finished this morning.

Looking at the pics now the snowman seems to have veered off a little on his sled.
Perhaps he has been on the boozy juice,Barb you must not judge everyone by your own standards! I jest of course.
Well folks are you all prepared for the day itself, I still have things to wrap and one thing to post ,but all in all I have got everything anyway.Just need to rob a bank as the grandchildren (older ones)want money.

I have not been stitching this last few nights, I have been -- knitting-- do you remember I started these socks for Martin a while ago. That long I could have sworn I had finished one and told Julie so. However I had not , and only got down to the heel on the first one. So thought I would get them done. Martin is a hole in the sock man ,forever getting holes in his socks. So I have told him with all the loving effort ( wink) gone into making these he had better get his mum to darn them if he gets a hole in them. He says they are lovely toasty warm,tried them on when Ifinished them last night and wouldnt take them off. Now have I started something here,am I going to live to regret it!!!!!!!!!
So here are said socks

Perhaps I could borrow Martins socks to rob the bank lol.

That is my makes for this week .
I did have a couple of little gifts this week though. One is still under the tree which was from Angi, and argh it is tempting me so badly. So cannot show you that .
The other was from my friend SAL Sally , isn't it cute.

I did say to her though I think you are all stuck with the old one I don't think there is anychance of a new me.
It is a Tanya from the sampler girl design in the Gift of Stitching Magazine. Sheep too so well ,what was there not to like. Thanks again Sally a friend indeed.

You may (or may not )be wondering what I have propped the pinkeep up on with Winter Woolies on the inside it is this-

Just had to show you that didn't I.
Well the mug is empty and I really must drink more,forever being told,just not the Gin mother! Hee hee I am now going to put the kettle on and make a cuppa ,want to joing me. If I do not get here again before the 9sleeps are up ,stay safe and have a good Christmas .
Hugs n stuff

Your Gone Sledding ornament is fabulous! The pin keep is absolutely adorable. And the socks look so toasty warm! It's freezing over here, wish I had a pair like that (and not to rob a bank with, although that's not a bad idea!).
Merry Christmas!

Carin said...

That ornament is beautiful !!

Sally said...

A lovely finish Barb. We could go sledding up here as the snow really came down yesterday afternoon and with temps donw to -10 last night and not getting above freezing last night it is still here!!

Glad you liked your little gift!

Love your mug and those socks looks lovely and warm :)

Oh Barb...that is SOOO cute with your additions to finish it! Humm....I will go sledding if you will. We can roll down the hill together laughing. :-) We might look like giant snowmen ourselves by the time we get to the bottom. Lol!

This year has been extra special with you as a part of my blogging world!

Merry Christmas dear Barb!

Christmas hugs,
