Hello my dears,
I hope you are all well and not too stressed with Christmas preparations?
We are almost there with our Christmas shopping, just a few more bits to get and make and then the food shopping to do. Mr G is off from Tuesday next week until Jan 3rd (yay!!) and so we will do it together next week.
We are going out for Christmas dinner to a pub but we still like to have lots of treats and I'll cook a turkey crown as one of our favourites things is turkey and stuffing sandwiches.
Mr G has been lightening the mood here by modelling a selection of comedy moustaches:
I *really* fancy him wearing this one!!
He says that when he has no hair at all on his head he may indeed grow a 'tache to go with his goatee.
Mr G has me in hysterics everyday, he makes me laugh so much and I fell truly blessed to have such a wonderful husband *gush alert*.
I won a lovely collection of vintage linens on eBay I want to show you:
I won them in two lots for just a few pounds....
I'm quite happy to just look at and stroke them as they are so pretty but I have been making something with a few, I can't show you yet as the recipient is a follower.
I've used a few around the house too, a couple on our bedroom windowsill, the cloth with the lilacs in my sewing room and this gorgeous runner in the bathroom:
It has little birds - I love birds on things!!
The embroidery is really exquisite, it's hard to tell the front from the back!!:
It makes me wonder who it was who spent so much time doing such perfect stitches....
I'm feeling a wee bit down today as a friend had a huge go at me after I thought I done the right thing regarding something (that sounds very intriguing but it's not even anything very interesting or important) - I'm a bit shocked and upset by the whole thing TBH.
Christmastime is often tricky for me with my anxiety/phobia/OCD so it's one thing I could have done without....
Still, I have you lovelies to chat too so that makes me feel a whole lot better.
