I've taken a little break though and just stitched some Christmas gift tags from the latest issue of Cross Stitcher.
We're starting to feel quite festive in the house now, there is quite a danger that the decs might go up this weekend!

I hope you all had a good time at haloween. My children when out trick or treating and came back with enough sweets to keep them going until Christmas. They thought it was very successful.
Over the last few weeks, when Hubby has been away of an evening, I've taken a break from Dragonfly and continued to stitch on the Advent calender. I've now finished through to No. 5 and No.6 just need the backstitch adding. Hopefully, I'll finish that tonight.
I'm still not sure how I'm going to finish them, I was going to cut them out, fray the edges and sew onto littlebags that I was going to make, but now I'm not so sure (just because of the work really). I've stitched them all onto one piece of fabric so they will have to be cut out and turned into something. Any inspiring ideas greatfully accepted. Although why I'm worrying about finishing them at the moment is beyond me - it's taken nearly two years to stitch this many!

I have managed to do a bit more of the EMS Advent Calender (if anybody remembers I was even doing it.) I'll try to get some update pics next time hubby is away. I'm currently on number 5 - it's only taken me two years! I'm only stitching on it when he is away so it's taking along time. It won't be ready this Christmas but maybe next year ?

I will try to post more regularly again, but you know what they say - the best laid plans ....
Happy stitching all and if anybody is still watching this blog, thank you for visiting and your patience.

I'm really impressed with how the eye has turned out. It's got so much depth to it, I couldn't see it while I was stitching but as soon as I stepped back from her Wow. And that's not blowing my own trumpet it's all credit to the charters at HAED and, of course, the original artist, Selina Fenech.

I've still been very busy with Dragonfly and have actually finished page 4 and started page five (the second row of pages - so exciting). I'll try and get a pic in the next few days and update you.

I'm really torn between stitchingon this and on Dragonfly. They are both addictive. For now I'll will stick to a weekly rotation (changing on a Monday), but I might change that to fortnightly so that Enchanted Flute can progress a bit quicker. There are so many confetti stitches in it that it does grow very slowly.
Happy stitching and thanks for your visit.

Yep, I gave in and bought Dragonfly
It's not as extravagent as it looks. To start with there was 30% off the chart, then I've already got the fabric and most of the threads. I've just ordered the rest of the threads from Sew and So they are always very quick at deliverying them so I should have them either tomorrow or Saturday. When I think I'm going to have time to actually stitch this, of course, is a different matter. Watch this space!

Since then I have got going again and put some time into Celtic Summer. She now looks like this.
I'm spending this week stitching on Enchanted Flute so I'll have something to show on that shortly.
Take care everyone and thanks for your visit.
