NOW CLOSED ** It's my blogoversary coming up in just a few days so I will be holding a drawing for something stitched by me. If you would like to be entered into the draw please say so on this post and I'll draw a name on Thursday.** NOW CLOSED
Well it's not long to December and I'm just starting some ornament stitching! I do have to make them up yet but I may see if I can get another one stitched this afternoon and set on making all three up tomorrow.
The first one I am sending to Clare. Clare is doing one of the decorated trees in her church this year and asked for help so I was happy to stitch one up. This is the design I chose and I hope you like it Clare. If I can get it made it tomorrow it'll be in the post to you Wednesday

Last night I decided that I wanted to do another ornament so decided upon this one from this year's JCS ornament issue. This was a quick, fun stitch.
My Mark Designs Be Merry
28 count Quaker linen
Friday night I started my stocking. It's only a small start but at least it's a start! This one is Bent Creek Christmas Carols and to those of you who know me well it'll be no surprise that it's snowmen!! Lol!
Finally my progress on HAED TT Sampler Letter J. I'm quite well on with page 3 now so I'm itching to make even more progress and get this finished now!
Future stitching plans are a SAL with Chris. We were chatting on MSN on Friday and she was saying she NEEDED to start Twisted Oaks Designs Merry Noel so I said I'd like to. Anyway she asked if I'd like to do a SAL so I said YES straight away! We've decided on a 1st December start so that gives me time to finish Bygone Stitches A Quaker Christmas. I'm really looking forward to this as it'll be my first ever SAL with Chris and we'll have the added bonus of actually being able to see each other's stitching in person as we're meeting up again in December:) We've also decided to do a private Christmas ornament exchange and I already have what I am stitching for her picked out.
Thank you for all your good wishes regarding my headaches/ migraines. I am still not completely headache free but I am not going to let this get me down if I can help it although it's not easy at times. I haven't picked my prescription up as yet as I'm still in two minds. I have been doing some research on the Internet and found something else that is also used to try and prevent migraines/ headaches which I have used before for tension headaches so am thinking about leaving a message for my doctor to ask if I can go back on those and see if they help. At least I know what to expect with them. I seem to be very hormonal at the moment as I can cry at anything and feel so silly! What doesn't help, I think, and what is probably a lot of the cause is I am 8 weeks late with my not so monthly monthlies! This is the longest I've gone other than when I was pregnant!
That's all from me for today! Please take time out this Remberance Sunday to remember those who have lost their lives fighting for our freedom.
