Christmas Preparations

Emily has been busy christmas baking in her food tech lessons at school. Last week she made a chocolate log and decorated it beautifully. This week she made biscuits which are delicious. We've decorated the tree and now the house looks very festive. Last night the English Department had their Christmas Meal and at the same time said farewell to Jo who is leaving us to spend time with her baby girl. The sampler I was stitching was for Jo and she was delighted with it. We also gave her vouchers for a pampering session which she loved, as well as an enormous bunch of flowers. It was a lovely evening but tinged with sadness at Jo's leaving. We finish school on Friday for Christmas which will be lovely as we will then have time for all those little things which still need doing. Jane x

Hi Jane, Happy New Year. I love the sampler you have made, truly beautiful.
Have you used any kind of pattern for it? The reason I ask is my daughter will be leaving her current school in the summer to go to secondary school. The school she is at is fabulous and we will miss her attending there, I have been thinking of what she can give to the Headteacher/school when she leaves that is different from chocolates. I thoght that something like this would be greatly appreciated but was not sure if you had used a pattern. Would you mind letting me know.

Many thanks,
