Wahoo I have another sheepie finish to add my growing flock :). This time it's the sweet Patience. I just love this one but then again I love them all!

So next week Barb and I will be starting Wisdom :). I can hardly wait to see what the last 2 series are like.I will have to get myself sorted to get some supplies to finish these off. I still haven't quite made up my mind just how I want to finish them but I know how I want to display them.
I have almost finished part 2 of the Holly & Hearts Christmas Mystery Sampler :) So pretty! Part 3 is just as beautiful. No I don't have it yet but I have seen it!
I don't have any other stitching to show right now as I've been stitching on my ornament for my annual exchange with Chris. Almost have it finished!
I was looking through my email from Bloglovin the other day and came across a Christmas challenge here and as the photo showed a rather sweet snowman I thought I'm having a go at that! So I sent off an email and the next day I had the two charts you can stitch from in my inbox. You can stitch either chart or combine elements but it think I will just do the snowman. I won't be able to show any of my progress until Christmas Day as that is one of the rules. It shouldn't take too long to stitch but will have to get it made up as well!
Anyway today is my blogoversary so today is the day to pick a winner for my little LK Love-ly Pincushion. The finishing is far from good but I do hope the winner will like it :). The entries were popped into my lovely Jenny B tin.
The winner is....................
Yesterday I was very impressed when postie delivered my GC order from 123 Stitch which I won in Shirlee's birthday, not blogoversary, giveaway. Brain was not in gear. Sorry Shirlee. I'm sure you're all itching to know what I bought so........
The Scarlet House A Sampler Grows and Lizzie Kate My To Do List. These two have been on my wish list for a while now, in fact A Sampler Grows has been on it since it was shown as a retreat piece on Tanya's blog over a year ago, so I had to have these two! Thank you again Shirlee. Love how 123 Stitch are so quick at shipping out and they were so helpful when I couldn't find the box to redeem the GC!
I have been thinking about my stitching plans for next year and planning to try and not get snowed under like I have a few times this year plus if I'm not really feeling something I'm stitching on to put it away sooner rather than later. My HAEDs will be kept to a minimum with QS Spirit of Winter Robin being my HAED focus and will possibly be stitching Sundays only on Mini Jolly Old Fellow as a SAL with the Dona Gelsinger group on Facebook but if it doesn't work for me I will stop. Once the sheep are finished Barb and I are going to carry on with our Monday SAL, Barb with the Calendar Girls and me with Frosty Forest. I aim to get back to and finish my Anniversaries of the Heart, once I have borrowed the charts, as that has been wallowing waiting for me to pick it up again. Going on the chart stash wagon next year will be good for me as I will get some of the lovely charts I have had in my stash for a while stitched! Fingers crossed. I haven't actually made stitching plans these last few years but I think I may make a list from my stash and see how I go. I'm determined to do this stash wagon, even though I'm getting the Frosty Forest series, as I'm not proud of myself for not doing this year other than the sheep. I feel like a complete failure.
Christine asked if I would show some of my sunrise photos so here are just a few of the ones I took along with others I have taken. I'm still trying to get to grips with my camera but I think I'm getting there!
The weather has certainly turned chilly here now and we've had the odd frosty morning. I love frost! We may get our first icy blast in about a week so wondering if that will mean snow!
Until next time.
With much love.
