I have stitched a lot of green this week on Blue Ribbon's Peppermint Twist. I will be so glad when I'm over the other side where the border is red. I am not a huge fan of the colour green lol. I didn't get much stitching time this weekend as on Tuesday evening it was back to school night at my DS2 school and then on Wednesday it was exercise class so missed two evenings where I normally only miss one boooo.

I also didn't get as much done on L*K Halloween Sampler over the weekend as on Sunday we went to Skegness for the day and Sunday is normally a lovely stitching day. We had a lovely day in Skegness though and the weather was quite gorgeous considering how it has been lol. Here's hoping for better progress for this week.

I am quite tired today from all the driving yesterday but I am hoping I can get on with my Lanarte Poppy tonight and the rest of the week. I don't think this one is very far from being finished. I think it might take a couple weeks more of stitching and that it will be hot footing it down to the framers because I can't wait to put it on the wall lol.

I received the JCS Christmas Ornament Preview this week. I brought this because I loved the Britty Kitty design. Having looked through it I also can't wait to stitch the LHN and CCN ornaments, no surpirse there lol. I have also received my LHN Ornie Under the Tree - I am sooooo far behind these I really need to get a move on lol

Do you like my new header? I thought I would try something different.

Thank you to everyone who visits and leaves comments, it really makes my day.

Until next time, happy stitching.

Your L*K Halloween Sampler is looking fantastic. I am sure I have this stitched up somewhere. Better get my DH in the loft to have a look as I think I have a few of the others too!

Peppermint Twist is coming along too. I still love this.

I found several ornaments in the JCS issue that called my name, too, Lesleyanne!

Your new header is very pretty; in fact your whole blog looks very "pretty in pink!"
