TUSAL NOVEMBER / FRAMING HAPPY DANCE

This is my TUSAL for the month of November. Mostly orts from my christmas gift stitching and Lizzie Kate Baby Sampler. I have signed up for the 2012 TUSAL and if you want to do so just click the link and it will take you to the sign up page.



Here is the Lizzie Kate Bably Sampler all framed and ready to go to my cousin who had baby Sophia on Friday 25th November. I am really pleased with how this looks and hope the new parents will be too. Sorry for the mark on the picture it appears to be on my camera!



I have stitched one christmas gift ornament and started another one and will show what I can next week when they are completed.

I got on quite well with my Christmas shopping, I only a few gifts to get but am waiting for them to be released so hopefully it wont be too long. Then its the wrapping and christmas card writing.

Until next time, happy stitching

Congratulations on some beautifuol finishes, they're lovely!

Good luck on your HAEDs, what did you get? I don't know if I can give you much advice on them. Don't get over faced by the size of them, because it is pretty daunting if you haven't done anything that big before. Do a tiny test piece to see what fabric and stitching you want to do, tent or cross, 1 strand or two.
Some people stitch 10x10 squares at a time, personally though I can't break the cross country habit, I prefer it that way.
And happy stitching, obviosuly :-)
