I seem to have dropped out there for a while, but at least while I've been MIA I've been productive stitching and finishing ornaments.
Here are all my finishes for February.

I used the stitching fabric for the backing on this one (my preferred method for finishing) and repeated the boarder on the reverse.
I love these little reindeer's, Sharon kindly sent me the charts for her little creations and I will definitely be stitching them all before Christmas.

My own colour choice - DMC 782 and White
Christmas Eve Flight
free design from The Sampler Girl
Again, my own colour choice but I forgot to make a note of them!
And the last one is a Lizzie Kate
This Lizzie Kate one has been waiting to be finish finished for well over 12 months, I came across it when I was having a sort out, I'd forgotten all about it!
I've also been doing lots of baking.
I have pledged 200 cakes to this years Heart Radio appeal, they are supporting 3 children's charities this year with their Bake a Wish, you can read all about what they are doing here. So I've been inflicting my baking on work colleagues for the last two weeks and
demanding asking them to donate 50p per cake .
here is what they have had to endure so far:
Chocolate fudge cake & carrot cake cupcakes
Raspberry and coconut slices & a Lemon drizzle cake
Sultana cake (very similar to Manor House Cake)
I'm happy to say that I haven't poisoned anyone....yet (grin) and they are going down a storm so far.
