I have another finish though I don't actually have it anymore. I finished it in time to give away to my band to be raffled off. I will have to try to win it back. I finished the stitching last year it's one of tangled threads penguins which I still randomly LOVE to stitch. I'm glad I have such a good collection.
You can find my angel pattern on my etsy page here please check it out. I hope you like it and the other designs.
I'm almost finished another set of designs of carolers singing I hope to get enough designs to be able to create an advent calendar or something. Though that may not happen this year!
Keep an eye out for my giveaway it will be happening in early December.

I have been stitching away on Tia project for the last couple of days. I just wanted to Finish it. Now I have I think it will be my ornament it took too long and it's too sparkly and pretty to give away.
Without further ado I present to you Joan Elliott's Christmas angel it was one of my crazy January starts.
I used beads from my stash and just used DMC metallics. I was meant to do the tree all the same colour beads but that was too boring! I love the Colours and sparkles.
Also there is a photo of my next project I'm going to have fun and it shouldn't take me long to finish.

I have been stitching... in between fiddling with patterns (keep tuned because I'm planning a giveaway!)
My cousin got married at the beginning of the month so I made her a wedding sampler but didn't manage to get it done in time. I now have until Christmas to get it finished. I apologise for the quality of the photos I'm writing this on my tablet so I tried the camera on it and its not as good as my phone so we shall see.
The sampler is from the book ultimate cross stitch samplers I edited the colours a lot! I'm using an Australian hand dyed thread by country cottage gardens.
I have also been working on one of my crazy January projects one of the Joan Elliott ornaments.
I also started a new crochet project. Its a doily that I'm enjoying stitching for the pretty colours. I will also post up what my little students have been working on they're getting a lot better. Little girl wants to have her sampler finished to put in the show next year. But that will be a new post. Its interesting what I'm finding out and learning as I'm teaching her what to do!
