I am queen of the almost finishes this week! You know how it is you can see the finish but it's not quite there yet and no matter now much faster your needle goes it doesn't happen! However by this time next week I * should * have 3 finishes or maybe even 4! Wow! To be fair 3 out of those 4 were started last year.
So first almost is Little House Needleworks Song of the Seasons. Just have some leaves etc and the bottom part of tbe border to do. Hmmmm not sure I can get all that done on my next session on this one but I will try very hard!
Next one is Jardin Prive La Pensee Positive. I am hoping that when I pick this up this evening I can get it done. Barb has finished hers so we'll be starting The Little Stitcher 12 Days of Christmas next Friday :)
Neither Barb or I finished Kindness on Monday but we don't have much more to do so we should get done next Monday then we can start Gratitude.
Look what arrived yesterday! The last sheep and November's Garden Journal chart. So that's one auto done and one more to go on the garden journal auto.
I also had a couple of bits from Crafty Kitten. Dawn said she could get me some finishing forms when I asked about them on Facebook a while ago and they arrived just before Christmas along with the autographed chart I won on the Norden Crafts Facebook page. As I'd ordered a piece of Winter Skies opalescent fabric I had to wait for it all to be sent to me but it was paid for in December so does not count as money spent during Stitch From Stash!
I think I went a little off the WIP track there! Here is another one I am hoping to finish soon. My December SAL with Chris. I just have snowflakes to do and finish another bit as I ran out of thread.
Lastly here's my SAL with Shirlee. I had to frog a little last night and, boy, this house seems to be taking forever lol!
I do have the one finish I can show now. Yesterday was my surrogate sis Lisa's birthday and this is what I stitched for her. I changed some of the colours to ones we both like and I added two hand charms to represent hands of friendship. I am happy to say Lisa loves it. I always get in a panic when stitching gifts!

After over a year of being away from it I picked up my knitting this week. Let me tell you it had become so close to going back in the bag! I took it to craft group with me and managed to get a couple of rows done no problem but then ended up having to take a row back and reknit it several times! Then I couldn't work out hkw to do yarn overs before a purl so asked the lady next to me. I got going with it only to discover I was somehow making 2 stitches with my yarn over each time! So I told her what was happening and she got the lady who runs it to help me out. So in two hours I only got 4 rows done! By the time I got sat down late in the afternoon to try it I'd forgotten what she'd shown me but I worked it out in the end!
That's it from me today. I really must apologise for not visiting and commenting on your blogs. I will get around to it one day!
Take care everyone.
With much love
