Feeling Good


I am pleased that i have finished stitching this lovely design by Natalie Bird  of The Birdhouse designs called Jolly Santa


I have been feeling really good and have been doing lots of baking,i made two Banana Cranberry Bread,one for DD1 and 1 for us.
If anyone would like the recipe just let me know in the comments.


We have been really enjoying our Pear,Apple and Saffron chutney on our toasties and we are now onto our 2nd jar.


Hubby is progressing along nicely with the new shed,then he will fill it with his boy toys lol.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
Cheers Sheryl xx

Red stitching on white is always so attractive. I have a cross stitch piece I made 30 years ago that is red and white and I love it. and that is a big shed. My hubby would jealous as he could use a place that big for his boys toys. Happy new week. Hugs-Erika

I would like that recipe! My grands are visiting for just 4 days right before Christmas and I plan to bake cookies and this sounds like something else they might like. I know I would. Love your Santa stitching. That hubby shed looks to be the same size as my husband's "shed" that is really a 3 stall garage.
xx, Carol
