After a little deliberation Barb and I decided to change from our Blackbird Designs SAL. I hadn't wanted to say anything to her that I wasn't really feeling it for BBD at the moment but thankfully she said it to me :) She still wanted to SAL and as it was on Christmas ornaments or With Thy Needle Wordplays I said yes please!!! So Monday we both started a Little House Needleworks ornament. Here's my wee start. This one is Snow in Love and I have been looking forward to stitching this since I bought it but just never got around to it.
I also made a start on Sunday on my October ornament for the Christmas All Year Round SAL. The theme is snowmen so I chose Peace by Sam Sarah Design Studio. I think I'm into snowmen at the moment!
On Friday and Saturday I picked up HAED Guardian. I didn't make quite as much progress as I would have liked but if I could stay off Facebook and the PC I'd be well away! I am still enjoying this so much though and am so glad I have my love of HAEDs back. Hmmmm I probably said this the last time but after everything we've gone through this past few years I am more determined than ever to keep going and finish him no matter how long it takes. Plus after seeing a WIP picture of Spirit of Winter by Josephine Wall, which I have, I want to finish Guardian so I can start that! We shall see!
HAED QS Holly Fairy is coming along pretty well. It wasn't until I got my photo up on the PC screen that I saw how gorgeous the holly in her hair is. It seemed to take forever with all the different shades in it but it is so worth it.
Finally my progress from the parlour with the ladies of Needlecraft Haven. I almost scrapped this last night to restart it on different fabric but decided against it! By the time I put it away I was feeling happy with it again.
Having a small giveaway now for two charts that I was gifted with and have stitched this year. If you would like to be in with a chance of winning them please say so in your comment. Please don't post this on your blog as I would it like to be just for regular commenters. I'll pick a winner next week :)
Thank you for all your wonderful comments on my last post. I appreciate each and everyone of them. No productiveness on the finishing front this time but hopefully next time if I get the chance!
Until next time.
With much love
