Seasons Greetings

Thanks for the comments everyone, I really appreciate them. 

 We are busily getting organised for Christmas. Most of the gift shopping has been done, and this year I don't need to do food shopping as we are having lunch with my family at one of my sister's houses. 

 Joel and Caitlyn finished school today, to much fanfare, they have both done very well this year. Sadly for Luke, and due to an undiagnosed illness, he has failed the second half of the year. There are a few options open to him, but as his health has now returned he is hoping that his part-time employer, McDonalds, will put him on fulltime so that he has something to do while he considers the options that he has. 

As you can see by the picture I have managed to complete the bottom row of pages on Gypsy Rose. I am enjoying stitching on her at the moment and will stay with her until I feel like having a change. She was one of the first HAED that I started.

This picture shows what I have accomplished on the beginning of the next row.
Well seeing that it is close to 11:00pm, it is time for bed. I don't think I'll have any other updates before Christmas, so I would just like to wish all of my readers a very Merry Christmas and a safe, happy and healthy 2013.

Happy and Blessed Christmas
