Definitely.......

My last post before Christmas! I had to squeeze one last one in to show two finishes and a WIP before I go offline for a few days to spend some precious time with my DH and two wonderful daughters. 

I finished up the next block on L*K 6 Fat Men so it's another finish for 2011. I love this one. The snowman's friends are just so cute! I'm stitching this with my surrogate sis Lisa
Lizzie*Kate 6 Fat Men Snow Friends

32 count Amber linen
DMC

Started 2nd November 2011
Finished 22nd December 2011 ( wow this took ages!)

I stitched up a little of the extra bit and will finish that before I start another block.

Last night, after seeing this on Michelle's blog I started and finished this TSG freebie ( available at Pattern Mart) whilst watching A Christmas Carol ( the Jim Carrey version) and A Muppet Christmas Carol. I love the simplicity of this. It's not made up yet as I don't have time to get it done.

The Sampler Girl Jane Austen Winter Ornament

Unknown opalescent fabric

Caron Waterlilies Moonglow

Started and finished 23rd December 2011

Last photo is my progress on Tra La La Snowman the December SAL with Chris and Lesleyanne. I just love this piece and am enjoying stitching it so much. I don't want to put it down when I'm stitching on it.

Not sure what I'm going to stitch on tonight. The girls and I will watching the Patrick Stewart version of A Christmas Carol ( our Christmas Eve tradition) after Merlin so I might just pick up the Snowman or maybe CCN Snowflake Serenade.

Here's Father Christmas with my last two days of my wonderful advent calendar from my surrogate sis Lisa :) A very useful diary which I will use to write my stitching starts and finishes in and a lovely Dragon Floss called Everlasting Friendship :) Thank you so much Lisa.

I'm all set for my SAL with Michelle starting tomorrow evening and am looking forward to putting in the first few stitches.

I listed my chart and kit stash but I think I may have missed some. In fact I know I've missed two small kits so will add those later on. I just can't remember exactly what they are!!! Have fun reading and don't laugh too much at the amount of stash I have!

So, once again, Merry Christmas to you all. 

With much love

Sally
