Hello everyone! Tuesday night I had a finish and it's a finish that I absolutely love. I enjoyed stitching this very much and it's been a lovely change as I have been a bit bored with my stitching of late.

I think I have become a little bored because I've had so many series going on as in the cottages and the garden journal. Don't get me wrong I love them but I think stitching the same sort of thing for months on end is getting to me! I picked up my AotH again and I'm already fed up of that! I think once I am finished with all these I will have to rethink the way I stitch and make sure I have a better variety ( as in no series or only one series at a time! ).
Speaking of the garden journal I made a little more progress on December's Holly. It is looking rather pretty even if I say so myself. There does seem to be a lot more work in this one somehow.
As for the cottages I made a start on October. I hope to get on better with this one as I'm so last minute with them now.
Clara Ellen is growing a little week by week but it will be slow!
I didn't stitch on my fold last week as I wanted to make a start on the cottage ( I didn't stitch at all on Wednesday when I would usually stitch on it ) but I will be back to that this week. I only have 2 more of the fold to get now so my collection will be complete in October :). I bought a paper mache box last week to mount the first fold on and keep the other bits in but I shall have to cover it to make it look nice. As much as I would really like the proper box I can't justify spending all that money.
Barb and I are hoping to get Holly Jolly finished this week but I think I may have a bit too much to do to. Love this one!
Finally my lovely robin. Getting there with page 5 :)
Last week my DH and Abi were on holiday from work. Jess should have been but because she changed jobs she didn't have it. We worked round her though so she could come the wildlife park. We only normally go once a year but Abi desperately wanted to go back and see the tiger cubs again so we thought why not. It was a little chilly but we had a brilliant day and between DH, Abi and I we took well over 1000 photos! I'll show just a few of mine here :).
That's all my news for now. I must some finishing done before I post again!
Take care everyone.
With much love
