Advent Blog Hop - Day 11!

Seasons Greeting!

Welcome to day 11 of the Advent Blog Hop hosted by the lovely Jo at Serendipitous Stitching!

Here is my stitched piece I am sharing with you this year - I finished this last year but didn't take part in the blog hop so thought I would share now as it's a piece I am rather proud of :)

Holly and Hearts by Lizzie Kate
Jo asked what are our Christmas Eve traditions?

Well, if it is a week day then me and my Fiancé will be working! Thankfully we usually get let out early on Christmas Eve so will be home about 4 or 5pm. Once home all the Christmas lights are switched on, candles are lit and a Snowball is made - Christmas Eve is not Christmas eve without a snowball!

Christmas Eve Snowball!
Then, we usually treat ourselves to a takeaway - I will be doing enough cooking on the day so the less I can do on the 24th the better!

After that we will watch a Christmas Movie - usually Miracle on 34th Street - I love that movie!

Then it is usually early to bed - I may be 28 going on 29 but I still always struggle to sleep on Christmas Eve!

Thank you for visiting my page as part of the Advent hop - make sure you check out everyone else and their Christmas Eve traditions too!

  7. Thanks for taking part in the Advent Calendar Blog Hop this year.
    Your sampler is beautiful and framed really nicely too.
    Your Christmas Eve traditions sound great, I haven't had a Snowball for years! I used to be very good at making them when I worked in a pub.
