The Postie artived today with a gorgeous surprise from Claire. A perfect addition to our tree for next year. You see we didn’t decorate at all this year. Thank you Claire, we love it 💕
I should explain. After we returned from our Cruise, we planned to set up the tree first weekend in December. Unfortunately the MOTH & I were both unwell. The MOTH had a cold & I suffered a severe asthma attack. Extra long break from work, many drugs & puffers and still suffering afew days prior to Christmas. After another DR visit my lung strength was finally 69% (which is very low) I was given a new preventer and had immediate improvement. Having air in your lungs & more importantly being able to exhale it instead of coughing it out & wheezing is incredible.
Hence we were not up to our usual effort as shown below. This is just one cabinet which takes several fun hours to prepare.
The we decided to move some furniture, this Christmas weekend. Unpacking China which is now covering the table. Replacing a corner TV unit, dvd rack & cabinet with a free repurposed sleeker unit. The MOTH has pickup up some backing boards & varnish. Which will complete the look soon. Ready to house our DVDs etc. Nice old glass shelves. A nice project for my handyman 😀
This is some of furniture removed from same spot. Last years decorations which did not see daylight 😩
2018 will see further changes. Our kitchen being renovated. I cannot wait. Hopefully that will be completed by end of February / March.
I must go, dinner is calling.
Happy Stitching ❤ Debbierose xx
Merry Christmas to all my blogging friends. My MOTH was busy this evening spreading some Christmas cheer. I took the opportunity to get this festive snap. I wish you all a happy, safe, loved filled Christmas.
I might not blog often, however I have been toiling over a few gifts which have been received. The largest ribg was 20mm,2 strands of perle 8 & #15 crochet hook. A few seed beads, cord & double crochet. These delightful little necklaces evolved.
Happy Stitching ❤Debbierose xx

I hope you are sitting down! Shock horror – Yes I have powered through a lot in the past 3 weeks. I am really enjoying this project. My time has been jiggled, reassessed, rationalised. Looking closely at what I wanted to achieve and how much time was wasted with futile projects that have bogged me down. Regaining focus and clarity was hard and a job on its own. Sometimes you have to step to the side lines and figure out your life. Now I believe mine is more balanced. Several hard decisions being made, I am not one for confrontation however the experiences of late have meant some serious decision making. Any way enough of the boring stuff!
Hope you like my before and after shots.
