December IHSW

I can't believe it's the last one this year! These past few months seem to have flown by...

This weekend I decided to concentrate on Gorjuss Laundry Day as she is stitching up fast. Arms are finished along with the teddy bear and her face. All that's left is her hair, socks and all the backstitching.

Gorjuss Laundry Day as of 22/12/13

I've added a page at the top for the Crazy January Challenge 2014. I can now show you the final item that was kept secret. It's for Steph from Show and Tell.


The chart was a free one for Facebook fans of Dragon Dreams. The front is not straight, I couldn't find my cutting mat so just had to do my best with scissors. I enjoyed making this :)

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all!

I'm slowly getting back my stitching mojo.

Here's an ornament I made for an exchange:

 Today, I did some more work on Gorjuss Laundry Day. Her legs are finished and her arms are half done.

I have also partly worked on HAED TT Kitten 2 but will wait for a decent amount of progress on that and the Trio of Poppies before I grab photos. There's just one more finished project that I can't show you until it's reached it's recipient. Have a lovely weekend!

December TUSAL

Unfortunately there's not much to show for this month's TUSAL but I do have a few finishes to show you :)

First up was for an ornament exchange on the cross stitch forum. This design can be found in The World of Cross Stitching Issue 209.

There was also a birthday card for my other half. This Margaret Sherry design which came as a free kit with an issue of the World of Cross Stitching.

Last but not least is Tatty Teddy Graduation. It may be a bit late but it was still received with love and appreciation.

I'm really pleased with how it turned out in the end. There's one more exchange piece that I'll be able to show you next week. Now all I need to do is try to get two more Christmas themed smalls done and then the plan is to just work on whatever takes my fancy.
