A finish and a RAK

I think my book has seen a lot of interest, I have 136 views of my previous post, that's a record for me.

I have finished stitching my Christmas ornament and added the 3 large buttons, I do still have to add the smaller seed beads to the tree, which is not in the design, but I wanted to add them. This was fun and quick to stitch, and it's for my daughter Fliss, she will finish it.
For my RAK, I want to pass this design on. With the pattern, I have the three buttons and Weeks Dye Works, thread Noel, which the word Christmas is stitched in, so all you will need to add is the canvas and a few threads from your stash to finish it. If you would like this little package, just add a comment here, please do not add it to your blog, I am not looking for more followers, I just want to say thanks to those who are already here. I am happy to send it anywhere in the world. I will pick the winner next week.

 We have a busy weekend and are out for the next two nights, so I have had my nails done, I normally don't bother, just a bit of varnish. But I love these, there are loads of golden bubbles and inside is pale colours, such fun. It is like a peel off wrap added to my nails, I tried one on my little finger nail for a week, and then removed it and they do not harm your nails.
Tonight we are all going out for a meal, our daughter Su was 30 on Thursday, she did not want a party so we are getting together with Gav's parents and Fliss her sister, to have an evening together.
Tomorrow we are at a wedding, which will be at 12.30 so we will be out for the day, we are staying at the hotel, so we have Monday off work.
Tuesday I have my hospital appointment, it's the check up after my recent operation, so fingers crossed I will be signed off, I have already said I feel great and will not have any more operations.

So a busy few days, as you can see I have done almost no stitching, I have been thinking about Winter Watergarden, and I am thinking  I will go back to it after Tree of Life is finished. It's another sunny day here, soon I am out with Su, just time together, we will pop in and see Fliss and her boys.
