Christmas Is Nearly Here And.......

Only 28 more days here in New Zealand for Xmas to arrive.  I am so not on the ball this year with Xmas presents.  Finding it quite hard to buy for the 14 (nearly 15) year old and the 16 year old this year.  Have got some clothes for Miss 16 as she is out of the school uniform next year for her final year of high school, but that is it.  It does not help either that Mr 14 years is turning 15 two weeks before Xmas, so have had to sort out a birthday present for him.  Any way I do have 4 weeks to sort things out.

Anyway, for this months "1 Xmas Item A Month" over at Pins and Whiskers I have made this lovely cross stitch decoration.  I received the kit last year and finally sat down and made this last week.
