A Post Christmas Finish

Well I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and are looking forward to a bright New Year. I personally cannot wait for the new year as 2012 was not a good year in general for me and I am looking forward to seeing the back of it.

Anyway I did manage to get nearly all my Christmas things done. I got the chutney made and jarred, I got the flavoured liquors bottled , all the tags made for each one and most of my cross stitching done. I didn't get one totally finished, however it was for my sister and she was very understanding about it.

So to try and get it done as quickly as possible I worked on it over the last few days and got it finished so here it is in all its glory:

Ultimate Maria Diaz Collection - Floral
This is the last of the Maria Diaz floral mini's I was working on and while I had them in a frame for the gift giving I told my sister I could finish them off another way if she wanted so she decided on the scented hanging ornament. I will post them when they are finished off as requested.

Here is one of the flavoured drinks I made, all bottled and tagged. This one is called Christmas Spirit and is a vodka based drink with cranberries, clementine, cinnamon and sugar. I made this last year and it went down a treat
