Happy Sunday everyone.
Well, it is official.
I am actually behind in my own SAL! I guess helping my children with hospital visits, lifts to work and finally emigrating took it's toll on my stitching time. Real life hey? Gets you everytime.
Never mind. I have stitched the wee maid before so I knew she would come out ok: I wanted to make sure I could pre-stitch areas which might need tweaking..and to an extent the horse did. I had to change the colour of his mane and tail but you know what? I am really pleased with him. I have never charted a horse before so the fact it looks like a horse is quite impressive!
Before I reveal him I have two wee reminders.
If you look at my sidebar you will find a link to my last post in which I have announced my Christmas giveaway. Please leave a comment to be put into the draw...I promise a box of goodies to make you smile..I did some shopping today and have started to put it together...gee...I wish I could enter!
Secondly, I have an offer of a new free design featuring two of my favourite animals for a Christmas ornie on my fb page..it will only given on my fb page (just as the heart chart on my last post will only be offered on my blog) and I have to get so many likes before I will release it! There is a link to my page again, on the side bar. Please feel free to pop over and 'like' my page xx
Ok: shameless plugging over!
Here is where I am at:
You have to have something horse drawn for a Victorian chart really don't you? A typical Victorian Christmas would involve the family all going to church before returning home to the Christmas Goose! And what better way to travel than by sleigh?
The chart is on the blog's Christmas SAL page along the top bar.
Finally for this week, I took part in my Irish Yahoo Groups Secret Santa and it arrived this week. I know you're meant to wait until Christmas but I have no will power and we were allowed to open them early if we wished!
I love the little snowman ornament: I love snowmen full stop! Thank you Secret Santa!
Right, that's me done. Have an amazing week everyone and thank you for reading my wee bit of cyberspace xx
