December SAL is Finished!

Yay! I have a finish! Yes it's my December SAL with Chris at long last. I was determined to get it finished last Thursday so I stayed up until it was all done. I found some bits that I'd missed so couldn't go to bed until I was sure I had filled them all in!

SAL with Chris.

I'm not sure how I'm going to finish it off yet. Maybe framing,  maybe a wall hanging or maybe a cushion! I really love how it turned out.

I've also been doing a little bit of making up so here's Dear Santa and Spell of the Moon.


Both charts are still for sale along with Angels if anyone is interested. Just email me :).

I thought I might have a new start now the SAL is finished but I remembered I have my NH four seasons SAL to finish and the  Blessed ornament as well as an SB fob I started ages ago so I think I'll concentrate on those for now.

I've been busy stitching away in the virtual parlour on Wednesday evenings with Barb and the other ladies and here is where I am at with Frosty Forest :). I finished Snowy Reindeer last night so that will be some pennies earned for Stitch from Stash this month! It's going so well and I'm getting quite excited as it's almost done! This has been so fun to stitch.

My sweet robin is growing slowly but surely. There is a fair bit of confetti in that tree which drives me a bit mad so I shall be pleased to see the back of this page!

More progress on September's Morning Glory. These flowers are rather pretty and big!

Barb and I are still stitching away on our Halloween pieces.  Barb will be starting another one on Monday as she has finished her witch but I am still on Owls in Moonlight. As you can see I just have the border to do. Loving this one!

I made a start on the April Cottage last week and stitched a little more this week. I really like these cottages and the colours in them. March is up and on display :).

This Friday Barb and I will be starting our next ornament Snow Love which is snow cute!! I've been looking forward to this one ever since I first saw it! Love the fabric it is stitched on.  It's a shame these ornaments are put away in a box for much of the year.

That's all from me for now. I have another finish but as it is a gift I can't show it until it has been received.

Until next time take care everyone.

With much love

What a pretty finish, Sally--it sounds like you enjoyed stitching it so much... And your little Dear Santa and Owl pillow turned out so cute! It's so nice that you are stitching along with your friends--it definitely inspires you to keep going on a piece, doesn't it?

Have a lovely day!
