And here's what I've been stitching this week. First up is some stocking fillers for my female in-laws. I bought these little diaries with an insert for a photo and stitched each of their initials from the Sajou Alphabet Carol provided us for her iStitch Mystery SAL last year.
These were a really quick stitch, a couple of hours for each letter and they make a nice little extra gift. One is for MIL, two for hubby's sisters and one for his brother's wife.
My evening stitching has been split between the Scarlet Letter English Transitional Sampler and the Mirabilia RR September Sapphire Fairy.
I've also stitched a couple of cards that I can't show yet because they're still in the post!
Not much else to report - it's busy, busy, work, work, sleep here. The Scarlet Letter sign-ups have slowed down (phew!) and we're going to start a second blog in the New Year so all the extra people can post for themselves. We've had the first prize draw already and one lucky person won 10 skeins of AVAS silks. I'm stitching with these for the first time and they are gorgeous. I've used several lengths already and have only just realised I've not had a single knot!
Finally, I hope you're following the Advent Calendar Blog Hop each day. The trees are having a late spurt and we have one vote for "shoes". It's so much fun reading about everyone's Christmas traditions. Our tree is up at home, it looks beautiful from one side but the other has a large undecorated area exactly the size of the Small Boy's reach despite being behind the boy-fence LOL. Photos will be from the "good" side only this year!
