A YOP finish & 'My Week'

Another YOP finished object to add to my list on the YOP-FO tab

I have finished the Christmassy Cat decoration- what a little cutie. 
My 'someone special' is going to love it.
It's about 6" high and embroidered with DMC floss.
An enjoyable and quick project to stitch. I might do a whole load for next Christmas, lol.


My Summers End crochet mandala has not progressed any this week, but
I have started another 2 crochet projects, but can't show pics yet because they are for Christmas presents.

I enjoyed a lovely Christmas dinner with the Embroiderers Guild group that I belong to.
Lovely company and great food.
 (or should that read)
Lovely food and great company.
Either way works for me.

I went to my local church fair this week. Plenty of nick-nacks for sale, and lovely music provided by a couple of teenagers from the high school, singing and playing guitar and keyboards. They were very good, and certainly in the Christmas spirit. Isn't it good to see the youth of today enjoying making people smile.

One of our junior schools in our little town also had a Country Fair, which was very fun entertainment for all the children. I do so enjoy listening to the happy little voices of children playing and having fun. It was another day of smiles for me.

There is a Market Day at the High School tomorrow, and an evening Crafty Christmas Fair event later in the week. I shall happily be attending those events too. I try to buy locally if I can, and I do my best to support local events and fundraisers. 

The garden has taken up some time this week, so with a lack of stitching related photos to show this week, here are some of my lovely blossoms and blooms purely for your enjoyment too.

Well, that's it for this week folks.
I hope you have a great time if you are attending any functions.

This has been another Year Of Projects post
