Miss-tree

I know Christmas is a long way off but I have made a start for this year's tree at church. I am still doing a cross stitch tree with this year's theme being everything and anything to do with being a "girl". The title of the tree will be "Miss-tree" (you need to say it out loud to get the pun).

I have just finished my first ornament - which will also be my ornament for the JA Christmas Ornie SAL. This is my first box finish and I think it has turned out ok.


Last night was JA UFO night and I managed to do the next flower on my Perennial Garden. This one is iris which was my grandmother's favourite flower and her middle name.


I had a bit of a strange day at work today. This afternoon I went back to college to a meeting with the bosses I used to work for. Not to see about going back there to work but for school and some new qualifications. It felt a little weird to be back in the old rooms and on a different level this time with the people around the table. I know one thing - I don't miss my old job or working at college, but it will be nice to work with them on this project.

Happy stitching everyone.

Clare,
Is your email address current/correct? I tried to send
you an email and it was returned
as 'nondelieverable'. I would like
the details about ornaments for your church tree. I would like to
stitch one.
thanks, Denise

It's usually the spellings that cause trouble, hope it works for you this time.
