Is finally finished! This one seems to have taken me ages but it was well worth it as it is just so pretty. I am enjoying stitching each and every one of these and can hardly wait to start stitching the next one!
Cottage Garden Samplings My Garden Journal July's Delphinium

No other finishes I'm afraid so just WIPs to show you. I do, however, have a page finish. Page 3 of QS Spirit of Winter Robin was duly finished on Saturday and a small start on page 4 was made. This page has lots of confetti in it so will take me ages to to! Lisa is making brilliant progress on the piece she's stitching along with me.
As you all know by now Barb and I are SALing several times a week at the moment. Fridays are our Tralala Tricotine SAL and here's my progress.
Mondays is our Halloween SAL and at the moment we're stitching on Barbara Ana Designs Wicked Since.
Thursdays we're stitching ornaments for our private exchange but, of course, I can't show what I have been stitching but will say I want to stitch them both again for me! I have missed my Christmas ornament stitching this year so next year I am planning on one a month and guess what I have done?! After much deliberation I have signed up for auto on the Country Cottage Needleworks Classic Ornaments :) I really think I need my head testing as I have far too many charts to stitch from but I've done very well on Stitch From Stash this year and I still have leftover budget so I'm proud of myself. I don't know if I'll continue with the Stitch From Stash group next year or try and do it on my own. It depends on the rules etc! I am using this month as my free month.
I am still beavering away on CCN Frosty Forest. I am hoping to finish Bluebird Cabin this evening but I still have a lot of white stitching to do! I think I need to buy several more skeins of white!
Finally a little more progress on CCN January Cottage
I really was hoping for a clean slate of projects by the end of the year but it is not going to happen so I will have to make the best of it and it may mean no new start on the 1st January like I usually have. I am enjoying my stitching though so I don't mind. There'll be plenty of time for new starts later in 2015 I hope!
Tomorrow is a big day for Jess as she starts her temporary job. Fingers crossed she likes it and they like her and will maybe keep her on. Abi is still enjoying her job but has been ill this past couple of weeks and struggling. She's got the nasty cold virus thing that has been going around.
I went for an MRI scan on Monday and should get the results in a couple of weeks or so. This is to do with the vertigo etc that I have experienced in the past and I think my consultant is trying very hard to get to the bottom of it. Although I have read recently about some women having dizziness etc during menopause so I am now wondering if it's something to do with that. We shall see.
I really must try and get caught up with blogs this week. I am so far behind again but time seems to be getting away from me at the moment!
Take care everyone.
Until next time.
With much love
