P is for Plum Pudding

Not much hand stitching has been happening lately.  But with my P block from my Christmas ABC blocks half  done, it didn’t take too long to get it finished.  In fact, it was rather pleasant sitting at the table, in the sunshine, quietly stitching away as I watched the world through the window.

P is for Plum Pudding

Although we celebrate Christmas in Summer down here in New Zealand, I still rather like a nice helping of rich fruit Christmas pudding with custard and cream on Christmas Day.  Yummy!

I’m working my way through the alphabet from Michelle Ridgeway’s delightful Alphabet Noel patterns. This is my “slow stitching” project, so I’m enjoying taking my time.  And with a long weekend away in the caravan coming up fast, my stitching bag will be coming away with me.  Perhaps I’ll have time for a little more stitching.

Lovely stitching, and I had almost forgotten it will be Labour Monday holiday. Enjoy the weekend away, hope weather is fine, warm, and not too hot or cold.

I love this Christmas ABC!

Plum pudding is one of my favorite Christmas day treats. My mom used to send me one of her homemade ones each year until postage got too high. I may just have to ask her for her recipe so I can make some for myself. :)

Thanks so much for linking up to last week's Stitchery Link Party. Aloha hugs!
