My rotation update!

Sorry I haven't posted for a while, it's been a hectic month making Christmas cards and even did a Christmas fair yesterday. I didn't sell much but it's useful knowledge as to what sells if I do any more.

Back to stitching, I started the month finishing 10 hours on Beverley's Owl. I'm actually stitching her again as she came out of my bag again so there's actually quite a bit more done than shown here. Anyway here she is!

Next out was the return of Frogs Kissing. I actually finished this column which I'm so pleased about! I love how this is stitching up even though it's been a pain to stitch!

Another of my SAL pieces came out this time, although as this SAL has now finished, I call it one of my WIPs now. So Sammy Squirrel came to play and as you can see I've nearly finished page 2 now. 

Last Friday I went to the Knitting and Stitching show at Harrogate. I go every year and always have fun but thought this time the prices were higher than I can get online. Possibly why it seemed quieter than usual. Anyhow, here's what I bought! Along with some toppers for my cards, I got Love Tree from Bothy Threads and a Hello Kitty design since I'm a real fan! Oh and some magic guide to start a new design on! 

And finally, tonight I got out my row of penguins advent calendar which I stitched years ago. It's so much more homely than a cardboard one I think. 

I hope you all have a fab Christmas, but I hope to post an update before then!

Happy Stitching! Xx


  1. Lots of goodies :). I love your advent calendar it's adorable!

  2. You've made good progress on your WIPs and were very restrained at Harrogate! Love you advent calendar too. Can't believe it's already 1st December!

    1. Thank you - my hubby had a lot to restrain me! I really wanted Aurora Cabin, but it was a lot more than I know I can get it for online! And as for December - it's sneaked up so quickly!

  3. Love all your projects, and that Advent calendar, too!

  4. Lovely update Sam. I really like Frogs Kissing, the detail is amazing! Your advent calendar is lovely too. I can't believe it's December already either.

  5. Your projects and your new goodies look great =) I love your advent calender, it's really cute =)
