My little bit of this big World

Tuesday 2 December 2014

Ho Ho ouch!

I won't keep you waiting, feeling festive and then last Wednesday I did my back in, boy am I in pain, just a strain, stupid thing to do, oh well feeling a bit better today.
 Time to send out my Christmas cards
below how I make them, nice and easy with layers, it's my photo from the summer, I stitched the baubles and put together the stamp for inside, only thing I did not make was to Merry Christmas topper. I hope you all like your card
 Our Magnolia tree is in full drop, poor hubby has an extra task, these leaves are huge, and once cleared up, loads more drop, Oh well give it a week and they will be all gone.
At least we can see the birds feeding in the tree.
 In the greenhouse, still picking tomatoes, 
I thought this plant was over but loads of new growth.
One lonely pepper on this plant 
 In the garden flowers which should not have buds, another crazy winter 
  My best tree, I love the view from underneath
 I did start these guy's whilst waiting for my stash to arrive, but I am unable to get comfortable to stitch, so not much done. Only have a bit of white for their beards and two pairs of shoes, oh and all the back stitching. Still waiting for my stash to arrive did not notice one item out of stock.
I am hoping my back will sort it's self out, work are great, they ensure I am supporting it when sat down and not too much on my feet, but by the time I get home, all I can do is rest. Each day is a bit better, and I am really hoping this is just a one off.
I have not done much in the past week, Fliss helped me with the Christmas Tree, Sam was very excited to see it up. We did manage to get some present shopping done, nothing expensive this year, just nice useful things. Hubby finally found me a couple of gift's, both of which I helped with, one for my craft and a nice new red leather purse.
We hope to go and visit family in Somerset this weekend, I was not able to sit in the car for almost three hours last weekend, I don't want to have to make the trip too close to Christmas.
Paula you have a parcel on it's way to you......


  1. Hope you get better soon, my hubby suffers so I know how you feel.
    We have a big oak tree in the garden, and poor hubby is always out sweeping up the leaves. I like your cards, what a great idea.

  2. The cards are lovely and I cannot believe the veggies that are still growing - it's December!!! Sorry about your back - have you tried a tens machine? You take care. Hope you manage your trip to Somerset. x

  3. Hope your back gets better soon Marlene. Love your stitching.


  4. Not fun at all when the back goes out without you! The cards are pretty!

  5. Hope you're feeling better soon, a bad back is no laughing matter, especially at this busy time of year. I can't believe you've still got tomatoes ripening in the greenhouse, mine are long gone.

  6. Beautiful cards you've designed and made.
    Hope you back is soon healed.

  7. Oh no! I hope your back is on the mend.

    I love having trees in the garden but this time of year they drop an ridiculous amount of leaves! I walked out my door the other morning after a windy night and couldn't even see the path!

  8. Ouch indeed! Hope you feel better soon. The magnolia must provide a lot of pleasure when in bloom.. pity about the leaves falling!
