I just need to finish off the "Merry Christmas" and add some holly leaf beads and some red ball beads either side of the wording. Not sure how I'm going to finish this, the kit is made up as a banner and includes instructions so I might do that. Wish me luck!
Oh, and on the karate front DS had another tournament on the weekend, taking home a 2nd place trophy in kata and coming 4th in kumite. He also graded on Saturday, after training for the state team that morning. He's now 4th kyu, or orange belt.
