I've been away longer than I intended, again, but I'm here at last, with finishes and starts to share :-)
My ornament for the Christmas ornament SAL was this little freebie by Whispered by the Wind, stitched on a scrap of light blue linen with white DMC.
The weather obliged me with a sprinkling of snow the day I took the photo.
My new start is a Shepherds Bush Christmas Stocking 'Thomas's Stocking' re-named Oliver's Stocking for the little man in my life :-)
I'm still waiting for some of the threads to come that's the reason for the skipping about with the stitches at the moment.
This is 3 Friday nights worth of stitching, yeah, I know, not a lot!
I'm going to try and keep this a secret and give it to Jenny on December 1st when she puts up her Christmas decorations.
The cake baking continues, and I'm beginning to think pledging 200 cakes was a little ambitious, I'm just over half way there though, hopefully over the next two weeks I will reach my target.
Last week was Chocolate Brownies and m&m cookies, they were mostly gone by lunch time :-)
And earlier in the week I made some muffins, but they were a bit disappointing, they tasted OK but didn't have muffin tops :-(
If anyone can share a tried and tested muffin recipe please tell me.
That's all for now, I want to thank you for all the lovely comments on my ornament finishes in my last post, as someone who finds finishing a bit of a challenge your encouragement really made my day :-)
This weekend is the Hobby Crafts Show at the NEC in Birmingham, so that's what I'll be doing this coming Saturday, I've got my wish list ready and money saved so I can treat myself, can't wait!
Until next time x
