Christmas 2010

The cake. The decorations going up.
The church spire through the window.
The cat.
The dog.
The tree.
The meal.
The pudding.
The game - kübb.
The grandpa.
The memories. Thanks for all your lovely Christmas wishes, and for all your blog posts, which I need to catch up with! We had a happy, quiet Christmas with my father. The hand-outline embroideries were my presents to all the family - thanks very much to Polka Dot Daze for the idea! The hands on the right are me, Ben and the boys, and those on the left are my dad, mum, sister and me. It was quite poignant embroidering them as I sat in the Hospice with my mum, and when I came home.

So glad you had a lovely time with your family. The stitched hands are such a very special idea and so wonderful to have.

Looks like you had a nice day in the garden as well, no snow AND blue sky! ;-)

I'm glad your dad arrived safely and the case not long after. The hands are a lovely idea and more lovely because of your mum. I'm sure New year's eve will be a mixed one looking back but I wish you a Happy new year ahead.

It looks like you had a lovely family Christmas. I hope it wasn't too difficult for you and your Dad. Your cake looked very nicely decorated. Did you remember to cut into yours on Christmas Day? We didn't!

Like everyone else I thought what a wonderful idea the stitched hands were. Reading back through your posts I could see how precious thay are to you.

Thanks for your kind words and my apologies for not stopping by more often. I'm one of those bloggers who fails to find the time to get round all of the wonderful blogs I like, but wishes I could.

Warm wishes for a Happy New Year.

I think your hand embroideries are just lovely and have given me another idea for Christmas presents. Thinking I should probably start about now.
