I hope you are well. Last week I mentioned that I wasn’t feeling well. Unfortunately I then had to take some time off work because I wasn’t feeling better but worse! I’m still off at the moment & have my fingers crossed that i’ll be able to go back into work tomorrow. You’d think being off work would mean lots of TV & Cross Stitch. I admit lots of TV happened but absolutely no cross stitch 😦 You know you’re ill when you can’t face stitching!
Today I have felt a lot better which means that I’ve been able to finish my gingerbread Christmas card pattern I mentioned in my post last week which you can see here.
I’m glad that I’ve been able to get some stitching done today because I was going stir crazy & very mindful of the stitching commitments I have made between November & December! Here it is:
I’m not sure if you can see it in the picture above but I added some silver metallic thread to the design, around the buttons & on the candy cane. I felt it needed it bit more sparkle & I’m happy with the outcome! I still feel like i could maybe get some sequins around it before I attach it to a card but I don’t have any, so would need get some. What do you think?
I also got some stitchy post back today which was just what I needed! I’m sure I’ve mentioned it before but I few months ago I started to take part in a ‘Round Robin’ with a theme of Fairies. There were some delays with it but it’s come back with one box left to stitch which I’ll be doing. I’m really pleased with it so far!
I now just need to find one more fairy patten to use in the final box, so that means digging out my magazines again 🙂
So what have i got planned this month?
November’s stitching goals
**Christmas tree ornament exchange**
**I’d like to complete some more of my ‘Teddy Sampler’ Most recent progress you can see here**
**To start the border of my ‘Magical Creatures Calendar SAL’ ready for January- you can see all the details if you click here.**
Ideally I want to stitch some more Christmas cards or tree ornaments OR stitch more of the toy shop WIP I have in the background at the moment.
What are you all working on? As per WIP Wednesday share your stitching!! i look forward to seeing it!
Love Kim x
