We had a great time at the Nimble Thimble meet up on Saturday, it was nice to catch up with everyone and I managed a fair bit of stitching .too.
I stitched Oliver and Bonnie a birth sampler for their first Christmas and Arthur will be getting the same too. I'm a bit late starting this one but I know that it's a straight forward one to stitch so I'm confident It will be all stitched and framed well before Christmas.
I put the first stitches in on the Friday night sitting while sitting in my little hotel room.
I'm really happy with my progress, I haven't really had a lot of stitching time recently so it was nice to get stuck into a project without and interruptions.
As I mentioned last time, I stayed at Ye Olde Boot in Whittington, which is just a few miles outside Oswestry town. Friday was a horrible wet miserable day but I did stop off in Oswestry and have a wonder round and the rain kept off until I got back to the car, which was good.
While I was there I picked up a few things to decorate for Christmas which I will show you once they come out again when I decorate. I also bought quite a few charts from Chris at the Nimble Thimble, again, I will show you another time as I haven't had time today to sort them out and take photos.
I have finished a few of the twelve (!!!) things I had on the go, I showed you two on the last post so this is the third of those.
When we went to Yarndale in September I also made Bonnie this little poncho. This wasn't a WIP counted in those twelve, this is a bonus finish, lol
My aim is to start 2019 with fewer things stuck in bags so I will have to try and keep focused now.
I do have another couple finished up and I will sneak those into future posts.
For now I'll finish with a few photos of Whittington Castle which sits on the opposite side of the road to the hotel where I stayed at the weekend. On Saturday morning it was only 3deg but the sun was lovely, a perfect Winter morning :-)
That white building you see is where I was staying
See you soon
