Hi everyone! Goodness, I’m actually going to manage two blog posts in a month! Been awhile since that happened!!! I do have some progress to share on a couple of things and I am starting to get a little bit more stitching time these days which I am enjoying!
Here’s the third block from A Sampler Story. I was a bit ‘iffy’ about this block only because it had to be filled in but, when I got down to stitching it, I had a complete change of heart and loved working on it!
Mind you, I’m not leaving myself much time to stitch the next one before the end of the month. Going to work on that block this week and hopefully I can get it completed quickly.
Here’s where I’m to on La D Da’s By Her Hand. A few more of the flowers stitched and each and everyone has had to be frogged at some point when I’ve been working on the outline. I really don’t know what it is about these flowers but I seem to be developing a complex about them!!!! I'm using 32ct LL Vintage Sand Dune and the suggested overdyeds.
My first Christmas stitching for 2013 is BOAF’s Red Santa. I’m aiming to stitch each of the BOAF Santas this year and have made a start on the green one (though can’t say I’ve stitched much of it yet!). If anyone is on Instagram, some of us are trying to work on Christmas themed pieces each Sunday. Search for #santasundayxs and you can see what we’ve been up too. If you want to join in you are more than welcome. It’s a no-pressure SAL, just stitch what you feel like stitching and share pics when you feel like it.

* Now that I've uploaded the picture I've realised I've forgotten to stitch the doll's hands and the bows in her hair!!!!!
Thanks everyone for your lovely comments last time round. The good news is that my parents celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary together, at home, on February 17th! So far, so good, my mother is doing well and she is so happy to have made it back home again.
Until next time…..
