Here is the Pie:
Yes, those couched lines on the Discworld Mappe took nearly 2 weeks to stitch. To be fair, some of those days were very short because it was sometimes difficult to get the enthusiasm to start on them. I also stitched the lovely silver stars around the edge of the Mappe. I intend to do a full post this week dedicated to the Mappe, so I will show lots of photos then. In the meantime, here's another full picture of it:
Holly Noel by Just Nan was the first finish at the start of the month and then it took 20 days to get another finish. This is the Alice freebie from Passion Creative:
Another Just Nan was the final finish for the month. This is Jasmine Mix, 49 x 49 stitches but 17 colours and 1 kind of bead:
I did purchase a little treat this month. I saw a former shopowner selling off some Just Nan exclusive kits from when she owned a shop, for a bargain price and had to snatch one up! Then the Just Cross Stitch Hallowe'en Special came out so that's an essential purchase. It is very good this year, now I just have to figure out how to fit a couple of the designs into the rotation!

Finally, with only 2 days left in the month after completing Discworld I decided to pick up a very old project. So old, it's not even on my WIP list as I didn't discover it until I was stash-diving for old finished pieces to FFO. This is Bramble Harvest from Needlepoise charted by Judith Stanley in the days of hand-written charts. This is just the cover, I literally have some blackberries and a row of Fly Stitches and it's a finish!
