I'm doing a Christmas ornament SAL with a few friends on Facebook this year, the first suggested theme was 'snowman'. I sorted my chart, threads and fabric out over Christmas and started stitching on January 1st and finished it quite quickly but put off making it up until last week.
I don't really enjoy the process of making up and since I don't think I made any ornaments up last year i'm out of practice, but he came out ok in the end.

When I went to the Needlecraft Haven meet up back in November this chart was amongst some that the ladies had bought along to either swap or give away. I think this one belonged to either Justine or Julie? not sure, but as it was gifted to me I would like to pass it on.
If you are interested then please say so in the comments and I will do a draw next Monday.
I don't mind where in the world you live but please don't enter if you don't really want it.
When I offered the Mollie Makes issue up for free on my blog a while ago the person who wanted it never answered my email,
(that MM issue has now gone to someone in my book club, I think I waited a reasonable time for her to respond).
My Amaryllis is growing, Yayyyy.
Last year I had a dud bulb. No stem, nothing, so I threw it away.
But this year I have 2 stems :-)
I love marking the progress of these plants, they grow so quickly once they start.
I went for a white one this time, this is how it should look.
That's it for now I think, Oh, I did finish stitching Elizabeth (Carriage House Samplings), but I haven't taken any photos of her yet, I only finished on Friday, so that's something for next time.
