I hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas. It was very quite here. We did manage to speak with DD who is in the UK and DS & wife who were in Melbourne.
I woke to a lovely email to tell me that I had won the weekly competition on Prarrie Grove Peddler Blog . I have wanted to do a candle mat and now I will have the opportunity to do one. Cheryl runs a weekly competition so pop over to her Blog to see what the prize is this week.
I didn't think I would make the cut with December goals but I did with 4 days to go - oop not quite I just remembered that I was going to start a new piece after page 4 of Crabby Crush QS - I changed my mind and decided I wanted to finish off Crabby Crush before starting the new one.

I am really pleased with how this is coming together. It is nice to be able to stitch blocks of colour after confetti stitching with Crabby Crush and Leaf.

I just love the richness of the colours of this one. I only have one more full page and the rest are all part pages - that is why I decided to continue stitching on her. See the lovely Crab claw appearing - though I friend Kim keeps telling me that for a Lobster to be that colour he is aheeemm not alive - I now cannot stitch this without laughing.
We are finally getting some decent rain - it was always just missing us and even though we only just caught the sides of it it has been enough to give the ground a good soaking.
Are you all gearing up for a big finish to the Year 2009. I cannot believe that in a few days it will be 2010. I am considering what goals I will set for the Year 2010. So look out for the post later with more stitching pictures and some goals.
May God Bless you all till next time.
