My little bit of this big World

See the birds

I have just another branch and bauble on this section to stitch,
below two birds to finish, then the top 2 pages are done. 
 This is how I stitch, normally with just one page tucked under the frame, but I have to work over the join in the pages. I hope to finish the 2nd page this weekend. 
 These are a case of need, the tops look huge but I think it's the angle of the photo, they fit perfectly and are immediately very comfortable. I love the lower heel.  
It's been a bit of a nothing week, work, home sleep, which is not a bad thing, we often try and get too much done is too shorter time. 
Later tonight I will stitch some more of the Christmas tree, I don't expect it finished much before Christmas is here, but I am enjoying the festive stitching. I do most of my Christmas stitching in the early months of the year. I love this design and will use it each year. We are also having a treat of Pizza tonight, we have a local shop who deliver wonderful tasting Pizza's. 
I hope to get my sewing machine out over the weekend, we are at home with no plans. Sunday looks as if we will have heavy rain all day, so we will pop out tomorrow in the morning. We have a new Lidl opened about 10 mins drive away, it's not a supermarket we go to often, our next nearest is only a small shop and when we visit we could not get all we need. It will be nice to pop in and see their range. 
I'm off to catch up with blogs, so many of you with wonderful things happening, I can't wait to hear your updates.
