Some Sewing & Some Eating...

With the school holidays happening here, I have taken advantage of mr13s help & got doing a few chores around home I had been delaying... so not much sewing getting done...

I have unearthed the big cross stitch that's a long-time WIP, and started work on it again... I am having to work around an error that I can't quite pinpoint; fortunately it's in an area of the design where it won't be noticeable anyway.  I do love my cross stitching, despite the slow progress of it, & am happy to be working on something again. I have a couple of small Christmas decorations on the Plan too...

I finally decided to do something with some strips of fabrics that have been kicking around in my Scraps Box for nearly a year now... leftovers from previous projects... Perfect for a Christmas Through The Year project, & an extra one to keep...
On the weekend we visited my folks, who have just completed a 19,000 kilometre journey around this Wide Brown Land... so I made Vanilla Slice for after lunch. It's just the recipe on the pack of Arnott's Lattice biscuits, & they are so yum!
We are finally getting some proper wintery weather - rain and wind and cloudy and cold - perfect weather for evenings spent stitching & watching all those crazy dudes amazing athletes slog it out all over France on their bikes!

Don't forget that Friday Night Sew In has a new home & is on again this week... pop over HERE to sign up.

Those vanilla slices look delicious! I agree about the crazy dudes! It's as much as I want to do to have a short walk first thing in the morning! I've signed up for the Friday night sew in and as I shall be sewing in the afternoon here, might even be sewing around the same time as you! Not sure what the time difference is though.
