We are two weeks into the new term here and the small fry have finally got back into the school and after school activities routine. I'm back to feeling like I am going to meet myself coming back along the road!
Stitching time in December was in short supply as I started a new contract and I'm currently working four days a week. The projects that I worked on during the month are firstly Dorothy Walpole from The Scarlett Letter. I'm still working on the bargello band but as I have got the top filled in and am working my way down, I think I am approaching the half way point of this band now. I am stitching this in DMC on 40 count Pearlised Barley Lakeside Linen.
Then I stitched Christopher his ornament, the ungrateful little sod had loudly declared that he didn't want a stitched ornament this year but I did one for him anyway. I chose to stitch him Dragon Dreams Santa's Unexpected Gift from the 2006 Just Cross Stitch Ornament Edition. I used the recommend threads and linen.
I also managed to get Rosie's Ornament 'finished' - A Star is Born by Needleplay Needlework Designs also from the 2006 Just Cross Stitch Ornament Edition.
