Well I have managed to make it back to my blog within a month of my last post! However my reason this time has been I wanted to finish the page I was stitching on Mini Jolly Old Fellow before I posted and at long last I have done it! I have even made a start on the next page!
I would early love to get this finished for Christmas but if I don't manage it I'm not going to get upset over it. I'll just see how things go. I managed to stitch this page in just over 2 months which these days is pretty good for me! I have one full page left to do and the rest are partials so wish me luck lol!
Back at the end of July it was lovely Julie's birthday but I have been awful with my gift stitching this year so I ended up sending her a belated birthday gift last week. I am very happy to say that she loved it and it cheered her up as she's recently had a fall.

Birthday gift for Julie.
I have done a little more finishing. I wanted to finish Welcome Spring in a different way to the usual simple finishing I've been doing of late so I asked the all knowing oracle Google to help me out and I came across a beautiful finish by Carin. I took myself off to the craft store, bought some fat quarters and set on trying to work out sizes and how to etc etc and ended up with this.
I am so happy with how this turned out! It's not perfect ( why can I never get that bottom straight!) but I just love it!
I also finished off these two ornaments which I'm happy with too.
Typing of ornaments I am still trying to get my August ornament finished! The main bit is done but I have 3 snowflakes now.I think Barb has caught up and Chris is well on her to catching up too. I think I'm going to end up behind lol!
Barb and I are still stitching away on our sheep projects. I still don't have an actual sheep on mine as the snowman took more stitching than I expected! I do love how it's looking though.
Season's Greetings is coming along nicely although I haven't stitched on it for a coupe of weeks or it would have been finished. It might be tonight if I behave and keep on stitching instead of reaching for my tab!
I am still desperately trying to get plenty done on my AotH piece. There is so much to stitch in this bonus block and it seems to be taking forever and of course I have the house to do yet! It is very pretty though and if I can finish this before the end of the year I will be very happy!
Finally I am making slow but sure on SK Dragons History. Another one I would love to finish by the end of the year but we'll see!
On my last post I was saying I was struggling with the book Sourcery. Well I finally finished it! It did get better but it was oh so slow to begin with. Since then I've read The Gospel of Loki by Joanne Harris which was a brilliant read and started the next Discworld book Wyrd Sisters which I am already enjoying. I have so many books to read that it is getting silly! rather like my chart stash lol!
That is all my news for now. I finally made myself sit and visit your blogs and comment which I really enjoyed doing. It was so nice to catch up with you all and I hope to do it again more often than I have been.
Until next time.
With much love,
