Last day of Christmas in July!

& my JCS ornament is done for the monthly challenge. This is by Wildflower Stitchery & More, & it is finally an ornament small enough for a tree, unlike a couple of my others. It was a simple pattern really. Made an interesting job of the finishing though. Not sure about it yet but it is different & was quite fun. I used a silk ribbon for the bits hanging off it. The picture was an interesting colour combination for a Christmas design so it was tricky to find anything in that colour group. But it's ok I think. It is certainly unique! lol
We've been out & about today. Went to the doctors for Brandon again & he is getting better quickly thank goodness. He was really good. I wouldn't let him walk around in the waiting room & he was good though I was tired of playing with him, swinging him around etc, to keep him amused. Did you know that all those anti bacterial hand washes are about 60% alcohol? So you shouldn't use them on kids as they can get alcohol poisoning from them! That's something they don't tell you. I thought it would be good but only for big people it seems. So you learn something new everyday!
We did go to the park for a play too as he was so good. He really needed to burn some energy. Bells Parade is not a good park though with such a little one with the river running right by it. I didn't fancy a dip trying to catch him that is for sure, so we might keep clear of that park for a few years.

You belong in a boat out at sea
You belong with your love on your arm
You belong somewhere you feel free
