Season's Greetings :)

Would you believe that not only has Christmas come and gone....but 2015 is just about on the brink of being a distant memory too! I do hope that all who celebrates Christmas had a wonderful day with family and loved ones, and if you don't celebrate the holidays, that you at least managed to get some rest and have a wonderful day too!

I've been rather busy (so what's new huh!) with family and pets and just about everything!

My younger sister and her kids as well as my brother has been visiting from Cape Town so it was a whirlwind of busyness and eating.....oh my.....the eating!!! I've never felt more like a stuffed porker than these past few weeks! My youngest niece is still with us as it's also our summer holidays.

I have been stitching.....promise! Still plodding away at "Serenity". Plodding along does make it sound like it's an unpleasant task....but it's not! It's just that the piece has such a high stitch coverage - rather like HAEDs! I've finished Part 5 and have made some lovely headway since taking this pic 

Sorry about the rather crappy quality of the idea why it's shrunk!

Donna has designed a gorgeous needlebook kit as well.....I'm so excited about it!

There has also been some knitting taking place....

This will eventually be a monkey for my new nephew. 

I also had a visit from the postman a few months back....just never got to blog about my lovely haul 
from Rosey be honest the stash has been claimed by my youngest who will no doubt get to working on it once the temperatures drop (we're still experiencing mostly temps in the mid 30s celcius). I have however claimed this one.....

I had originally planned on stitching a LK design and using it as a birth sampler, but when I saw this in the mail I decided that this would make a sweet sampler :) 

Hope to be back in blogland soon!

Take care

Serenity looks great. Congrats on the gifts. I think the bear will make an adorable sampler.

Oh yes, Thoeria, you are right. This little teddy bear will make a wonderful birth sampler. He looks so sweet.
And nice progress on Serenity Harbour. I have seen that there is a lot of solid stitching in it but it's such a great project- no wonder that you love stitching it so much.
Have a great new stitching year. I'm looking forward to seeing what you will be crafting this year.
