More Ornaments and A New Start!

Now that the other two ornaments I stitched for friends have been received I can show those:) The first one is JBW Gingerbread Christmas which I stitched for Lisa. This was stitched on an unknown fabby ( it was in an ornaments cut bag) using DMC and Kreinik. This was a lovely little design to stitch.

Next is Paw Printings Penguin Hugs which I stitched for Karen as she loves penguins! No idea of this fabric either but it was stitched with DMC.


Last night I finished Twisted Oaks Designs Merry Noel which I am SAL-ing with Chris. It's all to cut out and stitch up yet but I loved stitching this and was determined to have it finished. I do still have the needle minder to stitch but that was separate to this piece so if I don't get it done I'm not too bothered. They don't take long to do though so an evening stitching would see it done:)
Finally I have had a new start! Yes I know it's very naughty but I couldn't resist this one. Any ideas what it is???? Chris you're not allowed to guess as you know what it is! LOL!
I still haven't received my SB needlerolls from JJ's so I am getting a bit worried now that they've got lost in the post. It's nearly three weeks since they were posted and they were for my birthday so I'm really disappointed that they didn't arrive in time and that they're still not here. Keeping my finger's crossed that they arrive before Christmas now. Yet my birthday order from Drema arrived in a week but thelast order from her took two weeks! It's ridiculous!

Short post today but I want to get some stitching in! LOL! Hope you are all ready for Christmas and not getting too frazzled in the run up to the big day. I have an appointment at the hospital in Hull on Tuesday afternoon for a scan which I could well do without so close to Christmas but didn't want to cancel in case I was ages before I got another one!

Take care everyone. Thank you to those of you have sent Christmas cards:)

Hugs
