Christmas Sampler

As many of you know my Darling Daughter is a lone female buying her own apartment in Nottingham, by the time she had paid all her bills she had very little left for buying clothes etc so decided to take on a weekend job too. So all week she works at the Queens University Hospital and at the weekends she works for the Emergency call out doctors at NEMS. To add to this with the shortage of staff at the hospital she has been working late two or three nights a week in the last couple of months. She came to visit the other week and was looking at all my Christmas pictures and bemoaning the fact that she had not had any time to finish any of her Christmas pictures so I thought I would do her a little sampler to put on her wall and cheer her up. I made a start yesterday and got on quite well so thought I would share my progress so far.

I do have a chart which I am following rather loosely lol and I am quite pleased with the progress so far.

Hope to do some more today though I really must write my Christmas cards today or people will be getting them early for next year instead of late for this lol.

Once again I say thank you to all you wonderful people who take time to read my little blog and even more so to the ones who are kind enough to leave comments. I really cannot tell you how much these are appreciated.
