My sewing machine has been working overtime so I actually have some finishing up done. I can't show all of them though as two of them are winging their way somewhere as I type so will show them once I know they've arrived safely at their destinations.
First proper finish is Shepherd's Bush Feed My Sheep. I just did a simple finish with a bow on the top. I put this one with my little collection of sheep :)
Next one is another simple finish for The Sampler Girl Jane Austen Winter. I added a ribbon for hanging and a couple of Mill Hill Snowflake Treasures. This will hang on my Sampler Girl on my stairs:)
Last one I can show is Shepherd's Bush Merry Be. I have to say that I LOVE how this turned out. I certainly don't want to put it away and not bring it out until next Christmas.
I finished the stitching on my January ornament for the Christmas All Year Round SAL. I really love this one and am so glad that I chose it.
Sisters & Best Friends Believe ( JCS Ornament mag 2000)
Unknown fabric ( think it's 28 count Polstitches)

Started 15th January 2012
Finished 28th January 2012
I had chosen my next one but changed my mind and am now going to stitch this one from The Cat's Whiskers.
Friday evening I made a start on the next BBD Aoth Swan Lake. I'm using DMC for this as I didn't have enough of the GAST. I wasn't sure I was going to like this one but I really like how it's stitching up.
Finally last night was SAL night with Barb and Colleen and we went to Barb's cosy abode where we had tea, coffee cake and choccie biscuits. ( virtually but oh how wonderful it would be to do it for real :) ). I had a small new start of the SB 2011 Fob. The piccie is a little blurred as I took it in a hurry this morning before I went to craft club. I think this will be my last small SB for a while I fancy something a bit bigger for my next one.
I can't believe it's February tomorrow. Where did January go and where is the snow??? We have had a mild Winter so far but it looks as though February might be the big chill. I long for some snow! So as it's the last day of January I have survived my first month stitching from my chart stash ( yay me!). One down, five to go!!! I have to admit that late last week I was close to caving but I stayed strong as I'm determined not to let myself down! I do it too often.
That's all for this time. I really need to spend some time catching up on blogs in the next few days to see what you've all been stitching:) Thank you all your lovely wonderful comments on my last post and for visiting me:)
Until next time......... keep stitching!
