Don’t faint....

No, really.  Please don’t. 

You’re likely to break or spill something. 

I know - it’s been a while since I was last here. Six months, in fact.  But I couldn’t let a Christmas slide by without wishing my fellow WOYWWers all the greetings of the season. May it be a happy one for all of you!

Me? It’s been a bit of a busy year with the old CIPD Studies (hence not joining in with WOYWW). And work. Work has been....hard work. Data cleansing around 1,500 staff members’ details and uploading them to new HR database software. I’ve estinated it to be around 200,000 individual pieces of info by the time I’ll have finished. And then what?  Who knows?  My current contract is due to end mid-March, so we’ll see which way the wind blows me. 

Creatively it’s been a bit quiet but I am actually working on one of my seasonal favourites - a Mill Hill Charmed ornament.... getting to be a bit of a tradition, it is!

So, brightest blessings to you all!  Hope to see you all around in the New Year!

Morning Morti. Good to see you today. I like the stitching!! I thought my stitching days were over (advancing old age!!), but new specs have opened up new, and old, vistas! Yippee.
Have a lovely Christmas season.
Take care. God bless.

That ornament is beautiful! Having just made a beaded Christmas tree, I can safely say that beading isn't my forte, so I really admire anyone who can make it look so lovely. Hope the Bromilows have a wonderful Christmas!!

Hi Morti, fingers crossed that work turns out as you want it to. Love the ornament. That embossing folder is by Cuttlebug, called 'Baby'. Google that and you will find a few links to some really cheap on E-bay, also available through Amazon. Just double check the image - Cuttlebug have a few called things like 'Baby Love' & 'Baby Shower' too. Have a lovely Christmas, Love & Hugs, Shaz #5 XxX

Hello Morti! Your last blog must have been just before I joined in WOYWW in July! So, I'm very pleased to meet you! The beading is lovely, something I haven't seen before! Hope you have a lovely Christmas, Heather #32

Great to see really are a gifted and patient beader, that ornament is lovely. I’m sure the studying on top of work will reap dividends ultimately, well done you. Hope you 3 have a fab break, happy winter!

You know, I have (physical) friends who I might not see or ring for simply ages but then suddenly I do and it is as if it was only yesterday we spoke. Same goes for WOYWW, time does not matter and we all get things in our lives that cause us to take a vacation. Lovely to see you here and all the more special because you made the effort to come and wish us all the best.
Happy Christmas to you and yours.
Hugs, Neet xx
