Do you know how close Christmas is getting !!!!! The bad thing about having exams and Weddings before Christmas is that they draw my mind away from the things I need to be doing to prepare for having a huge family Christmas at my house and sooner or latter panic sets in as I realize once again I will run out of time to complete all the things I had planed to stitch as gifts ,OH why can't I be one of those people who cleverly start stitching at the beginning of the year ?LOL
Last night I stitched the first couple of rows of the roof on Welcome Home Spot ,but then decide that the little flower garland would make a nice little scissor fob so I stitched that instead and will take a photo if I stitch it together today.I forgot to add that the fabric I have stitched this sampler on was a gift from Karen it is 28 count Lakeside Linen ,by the way Carol I have loads of finished pieces waiting to be framed or finished in some way but I do hope to frame this piece LOL ,maybe that should be a challenge for me next year to a actually finish or frame each piece as I stitch it hmm thats definitely worth thinking about especially since I I theory should be saving money by stitching from my stash .
Lastly HI Namuelle glad you dropped by , we have finished all your cookies now they were sooo yummy .
Well thats it for now so Take Care and Happy Thanks Giving to everyone in America.

15/50 projects.
