Christine even came up with a little song for us:

As you know I completed Nora Corbett's Raven on the final day of October which then left me with that "Post-Finish Indecision" which you get when you've been focused on one piece for a little while.
I wasn't really sure what to stitch next. So I started my Christmas Ornament for this month, another Dragon Dreams and then spent a day beading last month's Ornament.

Finally I did some tea-dyeing today. We had a packet of teabags in the staff room at work which were well out of date so I brought some home to dye fabric. Two pieces here, both 28 count evenweave, which took the colour in totally different ways. One was a pale blue to start with and came out a gingerbread colour. The other was more grey and came out a more classic neutral shade.
