Things I have been up to

These were the three pillow cases that I embroidered for my two nieces and my nephew. I can show them now,since they came over for a small holiday gathering, and they decided to open their gifts from us. We also celebrated Pierre's birthday.
Tea towel I made to go along with the apron that I made my sister.

Caitlin modeling it
Pierre's birthday was December 20th, and we decided to get him this giant chocolate cake to celebrate.
Make a wish!

Well folks, it is nearing the day. Hope everyone has all their chores done and gifts wrapped! I'm almost done,with last minute things and final menu preparations for Christmas dinner.
I put the pictures of Pierre up for his mom and dad who read the blog from France. I hope they enjoy the photos,there will be more to share after Christmas so come back again Michele and Jaquie.
My next post will be after Christmas....So, here is wishing everyone out there in blog land a very Merry Christmas!
