A blog trying to focus on all the nice things in life, those moments when everything turns out right. Finding the perfect fabric for that chart you love, the ideal sampler quote, just the right picture in all the 1000s of magazines you own. Meeting people who share your interests and obsessions and totally understand why you NEED that chart when you already have enough to last until you're 104
It's TUSAL time, the Totally Useless SAL where we all show our ORTS and link-up on Daffycat's blog.
Here is my TUSAL jar with two projects:
The current rotation is as follows:
1. Christmas Ornament
2. Hallowe'en project
3. Gardens of London
4. Discworld Mappe
5. Something from my 19 in '19
So you can see we are on item 2 - my spooky conversion of Lavender & Lace's Enchanted Alphabet.

I completed all the letters last year and now I am adding various motifs to fill the gaps in. Last month I added the gate and this month some cats are appearing. The plan is to use Just Nan designs as much as possible so everything goes well together. The gate came from Jardin Prive though.
The design on the right is my third finish for this year and my second Christmas design. This is Poinsettia by Ink Circles from the 2008 issue of Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornament Special.

Behind it is the backing paper I am going to be scrapbooking this piece on to. You'll see that on the 10th for Rachel's Fully Finished Gallery SAL.
Finally, you still have time to sign up for the Secret Stitching Sweetheart Blog Hop due to take place on Valentine's Day. See previous posts for more details. And if you have already signed up, don't forget to email the photo of your secret piece to me! Obviously I can't take part in the Hop myself but I do enjoy seeing all the hearts and love in my Inbox in the run-up to the Hop. So thank you for that.
