En(JOY) my seventh ornament.

Christmas Eve and I have lots to do.
Some last minute supermarket shopping.
Preparing food and sweets for tomorrow when we spend the day at my brother's.
Get prepared for Monday's day trip with the Drama Club.
And at the same time hubby is down with a very bad backache so I have to look after him, too, and get preparing all by myself.
So there is not much time for anything else or to linger on the computer.
Here I will show you some things I had made a blog about and didn't publish.
It is for the Christmas ornament challenge and it is the seventh and I suppose it will be the last one as I have no time to stitch any more.
Anyway I made it from Sam Hawkins' 50 cross stitch Christmas booklet using whatever leftover fabric and threads I had and some beads and some beautiful pink lace trimming from Melissa of Tiny Happy.
It ended up quite beautiful although I should have used lighter green and I decided to keep this one as I love keeping one handmade ornament each year for my tree.

And here are pics of my blooming bulbs. They smell wonderful!
