Moonlight Visitor................

Is finished! I wasn't sure it was going to get done as I was unsure of how to do the personalisation. I even stitched a bit over one and had to frog it as I realised it wouldn't work so in the end I just stitched my parents first initials, the date they were married and mine and my sister's first initial. I'm really pleased with this one. Farm House will be next. * I forgot to say that my Mum's initial on this one is actually the initial of her middle name because both her and her Mum had the same Christian name she was known by her middle name*

I had another small finish on Sunday evening. I desperately wanted to get Red House in Winter finished so I can start another SB ornament this next Sunday and I did it! I plan on getting my sewing machine out this week to finish it and those fobs up:)

Finally my new start ( yes another one!) from last night. I really enjoy my SB SAL night with Barb and Colleen so decided on Family Sampler for last night and I LOVE it! I don't seem to have been enjoying my stitching as much of late and I've really had to push myself some nights to pick it up ( unless it's AND night with Lisa) so this was a refreshing change as I didn't want to put it away!
I am soon going to have to say to hell with the rotation for a bit as I have a few birthdays coming up plus I have just become a member of the sisterhood as I won the travelling pattern from Michele so will start that as soon I can ( probably when I've finished AND) so that I can get it on it's way again. This one is Waxing Moon My Needle and Floss They Comfort Me which is oh so true a saying for me right now!

Well that's me done for today. I'll be back later in the week hopefully with my fobs and ornament all finished :)
Take care everyone and thank you for continuing to visit me and for all your wonderful comments. I know I'm not at my chattiest but it's hard to see the wood for the trees just lately.

Love & hugs
Sally

Hi Sally. I like the way AofH turned out as my house is yellow in color also. Love the way LHN piece. My rotation has gone awry, but hope to get back on, and knowing the rotation will go off course again.

Grats on the finishes Sally, and on all the progress!! Love the colors in your new start. That rosey pink is lovely. I know you're having a rough time, but try and keep your chin up and keep on trucking. It will all be worth it in the end!! PS I love the butterfly in MV. It's gorgeous!!
