Oh dear I seem to have neglected my poor little blog for a couple of weeks! So much for blogging once a week! I've been having a bit of a busy time of it preparing for this event!
Yes my youngest baby, Abigail, turned 21 last Monday! I seriously do not know where all those years have gone but she has grown into a beautiful, caring young woman who I am so proud of. Here are just a few photos.
So at this time of the month I would normally be doing a Stitch from Stash post but, sadly, Mel has had to step down from doing this. However I will still be keeping on with it myself for the rest of the year and also next year. So here is my report.
Spent: £25 ( last Shepherd's Fold )
Earned : £24
Balance carried fwd: £116.94
Onto my stitching now. Not a lot of stitching has been done this week as we went out for a meal at the local Italian / Mexican restaurant on Monday evening to celebrate Abi's birthday then on Thursday evening as an extra treat we went to Sheffield Arena to see Disney on Ice which was amazing!
Barb and I started our next Country Cottage Needleworks ornament which is Fa La La. This is my progress so far. I love this one so much as it has sheep on it of course!
I joined Mani Di Donna's Christmas contest on Facebook a while ago and have finally made a start on it. I'm stitching it on 40 count fabric using Carrie's Creations and DMC Variations. I need to get a move on as we have to have them all finished and made up by the 15th December!
Another one I have to get a move on with is my December Cottage! I do love how this one looks but December is my favourite month of the year!
I added just a few more stitches to Evergreen Lane. This house is huge so it'll take a while!
Of course no post is complete without my gorgeous robin! I'm making even better progress on him since I've stitching two evenings on him. He'll be coming out tonight and tomorrow night then I can get my 100 stitches in for the challenge on the HAED Facebook group. I have done far more than the 400 already needed already but the more I do the faster I can get him on my wall!
That is all for now. I'm going to catch up on a bit of blog reading now as I am way behind yet again!
Take care everyone and stay warm. We are having our first cold spell but no snow yet! Some parts of the country have it and, as always, I am disappointed that we don't lol!
With much love
