Well, that's Christmas over for another year....Christmas Day itself was pretty quiet, just us and the kids. Mum & Dad had been supposed to be coming but changed their minds a few weeks ago. We had a pleasant day though. Little Pete was extremely excited about the whole thing, and the kitties got a bit hyper. Boxing Day we drove up to my parent's place...what a nightmare - we live at the furthest southern tip of Sydney and my parents live about an hour's drive north of the top end of the city, so we have to drive right through Sydney. The trip normally takes a couple of hours but the traffic was diabolical! It was nice when we finally got there, both brothers and their families were there and we had another Christmas dinner, sitting outside on the patio.
Stitching hasn't been on the agenda much for the past week, so my latest pic shows pathetically little progress (for me) on Pompeii Garden....I've been working on the house on the right. Sorry about the crumpled look - it could use a good iron but I won't bother till it's finished. This piece has become a bit of a chore, but I'm determined to finish it. Apart from anything else, the kit was too expensive to allow it to become a UFO. And I do like it, I just don't like stitching on it.
