Here is my part ten nearly done – just need to add the beads and add the metallic gold to the border. It looks pretty cool. I am happy with it. Is it really obvious the initials are not centred? (They are one stitch out)

This morning I went out and bought an awful amount of chocolate santas because tomorrow I am hosting the first of two Christmas parties at my library service. I broke down at 2pm and breached the first box of 72 pieces and now there are 70 in that box. 🙂 it was worth it!!
I’ll probably eat plenty more tomorrow in anticipation of the great event. I’m always nervous about doing these programs.
