Come visit with me as I stitch and craft my way from one Christmas to the next - I like to have Christmas projects close by me all year. I have a particular fondness for Santas and Angels. If you have the time, leave a comment so I know you've visited.

Back again - its been a while

It's quite some time since I updated my blog.  There's been no stitching progress to speak of in the intervening months.  This is most unusual for me, it must be years since I've had such a stitching slump.  I have stitched two ornaments that have been waiting to be made up for some months now.  This week  I have started stitching another ornament, but progress is slow. I do need to get stitching again, as I still have a lot of ornaments on my stitching list.  I plan to finish stitching the current ornament this month, and also make up the three ornaments. 

I took this photo in my front garden at 1am this morning.  It's a tawny frogmouth, and I was so pleased to see him, as he was hit by a car several months ago and returned to health by the local wildlife carers.  I had been watching out for him but this was the first time I got a clear view of him.  He seemed to be posing for me.  He waited while I got Maddie inside (she was out for her last toileting before bed) and found my camera, then sat there while I took several photos.


And, just so she doesn't get jealous, here's a recent photo of Maddie, doing what she does best - sleeping in her basket.
 and here she is just thinking about getting up for a drink of water.
That's all for now.  I should be back before the end of the month with stitching pics to show.
