Good morning bloggers..you won’t be surprised to hear me say its raining here lol it has also gotten extremely windy, the perfect day for staying in and stitching I think.
Last week I’d made a start on my last LHN ornament I needed for a gift. I got that finished and made up and I have some pictures of all the ornaments I made for gifts this year. These ornaments will be accompanied by a dishcloth set and some mince pies.

With the ornaments out of the way I decided to crack on with getting the stitched pictures I had in mind for presents for the three younger children. With the older ones getting knitted Harry Potter scarves they needed something so I chose three of the CCN Nursery Rhyme Series, Little Boy Blue, Jack and Jill and Little Miss Muffet. With under two weeks to go to get these stitched and framed I’m cutting it fine, but that’s hardly strange to you fellow bloggers either lol. I always seem to be working down to the wire. I say I’ll change and be more organised but I never am, perhaps that can be a new years resolution! lol
Anyway this here is the progress so far on Little Boy Blue. I have the frames already gotten so now I just need to stitch stitch stitch, wish me luck !

This weekend is IHSW (International Hermit and Stitch Weekend ) why don’t you head on over to http://joysze.blogspot.com/ and check it out.
While browsing blogs Vonna at The Twisted Stitcher was talking about some SAL’s she starting and is in so I checked them out and yes..I bet you can guess what happened…I signed up for some SAL’s.
I’m not doing exchanges next year and thought these would be a good way to still get involved with fellow stitchers… these are the ones I’ve signed on for so far, they are no rules, stitch at your own pace ones..check them out

I think with these, my crazy challenge and my knitting challenges and goals next year is going to be equally as busy, so much for the resolution..I didn’t even make it through Jan 1st with that one ! lol
Linda at Stitchin with my Furbabies is doing a couple of the same patterns in her crazy challenge so we’ve decided to do SAL’s along to these pieces, a way to encourage each other to finish. We will be starting with LHN’s Robin Hood and then moving onto LHN’s The Wild West and then onto some Bothy Cut Thru’s. Progress of these as we start in January lol, if Linda can wait that long.
I’m off now to make mince pies for Dominics music teacher this is his last lesson before Christmas, he has stitched her an ornament of his own and pictures of that next week.
