I got asked by a couple of people what I plan to do on my day off. Apparently one in particular is under the impression that I will sit around all day. Hmm.
This is one text:
Day off today so menu planning/grocery shop. Vacuum/wash floors. Laundry. Some stitching on my latest project. Mase has a party (I find it odd that the Muslim boy’s party is at Macca’s). Potting up some herb cuttings, planting more seed. And painting mirror frames black so they match my picture frames. It would be more restful at work, except Si took Bran to the Navy league tournament today!
Apart from the party it’s a very normal Mum’s Day Off, isn’t it? Chores are a never ending circle, most of us like to do something to improve our homes, but some of us don’t attack the day with a plan. 90% of what I intend to do will take a half hour chunk and I get satisfaction from crossing stuff of the list.
I’m in between pieces so I picked up my Reindeer parade. Rudolph was stitched a while ago, and I’m now adding Blitzen. The ribbons will eventually connect them.
This is at the three hour mark. I’m planning on beading and doing the snow swirls/trees later on. And I’m not doing the “glow” part of Rudolph’s nose. I like him as is. Plenty of thread conversion too which I will post later on as I’m still working on some.

Gorgeous reindeer, enjoy stitching them 🙂
ooh I am!
It sounds like you have a very busy day. I love your reindeer you have done alot in 3 hours.
thank you! TV binge, kids in bed, hubby out – all the proverbial ducks in a row!
Haha yes. That sounds like my typical “day off” as well ;). Glad to see I’m not the only one stitching a Christmas project in July!
I’ll stitch Christmas anytime! Except on the eve. Because about then I am wanting to strangle Si as he leaves his huge last minute present pile with me
I’m glad you posted this!!! I wanted to stitch the sleigh and some reindeer together but didn’t know how to start. I appreciate you sharing your work. Makes my plan seem more possible!
Hello Nora! Thank you for browsing and taking the time to comment 🙂 I’d love to see your plan!
