Unfortunately, I didn't get as much done this month as I had hoped. Poor Adriana, which I wanted to have done by this update, didn't get anymore stitches added. Nor did the Sticklounge Advent Calender or the Old European Sampler. Sigh.
Instead, I spent an enjoyable month on Halloween and Exchanges (one of which is still a secret):
I did finally finish Something Wicked by La-D-Da. It only needed the spiders added but had fallen to the bottom of my pile and was hidden -- until now:
I can't remember when I started this one but it was at least a year ago, maybe more (time flies when you're having fun). I doubt it'll get 'ornamentized' before tomorrow but at least it's ready for the process.
The last piece I stitched on was the Christmas SAL from Carole and I'm happy to report it is up to date:
Carole's original design called for lots of white thread but the white doesn't show up well on my tea stained fabric (at least not stitched 1 over 1, it doesn't). So I picked a light brown for the snow instead -- hmmm, better than yellow, don't you think?
I'm not signing up for any more exchanges or SAL's until after the new year. I need to get more Christmas gifts stitched and will be spending most of my stitching time getting them done.
And I really want to get Adriana finished before the world ends.
