Christmas times with Ria

A few days for Christmas Ria invited me over to her house for lunch - I know how much Ria love Christmas but I didn't realise she would make me such an amazing lunch.

First course was baked chicken, cranberry jelly, beans and asparagus.
Second course was pavalova, berries and cream.
Here's a photo of the Christmas tree at Ria's house - its super fancy.
We spent the afternoon hanging out, eating delicious food and watching Adventure Time.

We also exchanged presents - fun times. This is the very cute handmade card I received from Ria.
She also gave me a very lady like cup and saucer set in a lovely shade of green.
She also gave me a film camera - the photos print out with vintage frames on them. I can't wait to finish up this film and get them developed. 
What did I give Ria for Christmas? Well a few weeks back I started working on an Adventure Time cross-stitch project for Ria. I do really love cross-stitch, but its the kind of craft I won't touch for months and months then I will suddenly get inspired to complete a project. Here's the finished project - I bought the pattern for the project from Esty.
Once you make a cross-stitch the next decision is how to you actually present it - whilst I would have loved to have made this into a cushion, I just didn't have time. I decided to frame it instead, I picked up a fun glass frame from an import shop and added some sparkly stickers and the project was complete.
Ria said she's going to put the cross-stitch on her work bench at costuming school - hurrah!
Here's a photo of use by the tree at Ria's house, fun Christmas times.
I hope you've all been having a fun Christmas time so far xoxox

That is a lovely pic of you and Ria and I love your prezzies to each other. Due to Riley I'm a fan of Adventure Time, I'm always singing the cute theme tune, though now we don't have Sky we can't watch it anymore, sob. xx
