Thanks everyone for your kind comments and emails after my last post. I’m still doing a lot of miles in the car each week. My mother was supposed to have her hip surgery on Nov 28th but a fire at the hospital the weekend before changed that. There was water damage to some of the wards and theatres so a lot of the elective surgery was cancelled. We are waiting to hear a new date, whether it will be before Christmas or not we don’t know, and the longer we don’t hear anything I’ve the feeling it will be January before it happens.
As to stitching? Well, I’ve been doing bits and pieces here and there. This one I actually had stitched months ago but hadn’t got round to finishing it.
SB's Good Cheer Pin Cushion
It took me several attempts to do this ribbon and bead edging but, I got there in the end! At one point I was thinking of attaching a chenille trim round the edge instead but a fruitless search through my stitching stash to find said chenille trim that I knew I had somewhere put paid to that idea. So, I just had to knuckle down and get on with it! I will say I felt like I was getting the hang of it by the end but I don’t know that I’d look forward to doing it again!
Next up is my finish of the freebie that was offered by Nikyscreations which you can find it here.
And finally, another PS Santa from the booklet Old World Santas II. It’s been a while since I’ve managed to stitch one of these but I’m hoping to get one more done before Christmas.

And that’s about it for this time. I hope all is well with you and yours. Seems like Christmas is going to be here before we know it which, of course, leads me to say that I don’t know where this year has gone! I’m starting to get itchy fingers to be working on a larger project. With everything that has been going on these last months my stitching mojo hasn’t been around all that much but I think there’s going to be some stash diving coming up soon to see what calls my name.
Until next time……
