A few blog posts ago I showed you an unfinished ornament I had found in the 2006 JCS ornament magazine and I'd left it out to get it finished! Well here it is finally finished.

I say finally finished but now that I look it's not! I have a few stitches in the sleigh that I haven't done! Well it's near enough a finish!
I have a second finish. Yes it is finished! I haven't missed anything on this one. It's my Monday night SAL with Barb piece.

We can now start Patience which I'm looking forward to. I see the ONS I'm getting these from has the next two on site so why oh why haven't I received them yet. I thought the idea of auto was you get each one as they come in stock and not have so long that there's 2 to send? What is your idea of being on auto for somethinG?
I have been managing to keep up to date with Plum Street Samplers Mary's Sampler. Love how simple this design is. So sweet.
I made a start on my October ornament for the Christmas All Year Round SAL. I had a change of mind as I was going to stitch a Mosey and Me one from last year's ornament issue but I ended up with My Big Toe Designs Always in my Heart from the 2011 issue I think. Here is my start on 36 count Vintage Exemplar from Lakeside Linens. I decided on this one as I wanted something on my tree in memory of my parents and my parent- in - law. I'm stitching it with the recommended WDW.
Barb and I have also been stitching up a storm on the Jardin Prive Think Positive SAL. I was determined last night to stitch, stitch, stitch on it as I want to get part 2 finished before part 3 is released at the beginning of November. Nearly there!
I got the big tree trunk and a few flowers stitched on LHN Song of the Seasons Mystery.
A little bit done on HAED QS Spirit of Winter Robin.
Finally more on Lizzie Kate Holly & Hearts Mystery Christmas Sampler. I don't seem to be able to get a good photo of this.
And look at the beauties I received from The Crafty Kitten. The second part of the LK Christmas mystery ( this girl knows how to do autos!) and I'm afraid I could not resist when Dawn said she was getting the LK Stocking ornaments in so I asked her to put my name on one!
Did I tell you I'd received my JCS Ornament magazine? Yep it arrived and I picked out 23 ornaments that I'd like to stitch. Notice I said that very quietly?! It's a pretty good issue this year. I must admit at first glance I thought nope this is not as good as it has been other years but after a good look through it I had a change of heart.
I've been emailing dear Shirlee a bit lately and we've decided on a New Years SAL! I'm so excited for this but alas it means more stash buying ( insert sneaky looking grin here). You may have seen some new stash she posted a while back and one of the charts was Lone Elm Lane Snow Angel. Well I had seen this on Pinterest and fell in love with it and I was telling her that I loved it too so she suggested a SAL sometime so I said why not and how's about in the New Year :). I am going to make it a treat to myself for my big 50 birthday that's coming up in December. It'll be last treat of the year and there will be no more chart buying except for the autos. Once my sheep, Garden Journal and Holly and Hearts autos are done I will just have the Frosty Forest one. I have to do something to make me proud of myself!
That's all my news for now. My doing more regular blog posts didn't work this week! I'm now going to catch up on all your blogs for half an hour :)
With much love
