FNSI....or in my case all day Friday

 Friday saw me cutting these out to make up into journals, I did go to spotlight today to get more lace and ribbons to finish them off but I got side tracked with the 40% off wool sale happening there and came home with a bag of wool which means another trip tomorrow for them.....and maybe another ball or two of wool???
 I also found myself working on a secret project so here's a sneaky peak, sorry that's all I can show you for now :)
 I also picked up this very neglected stitchery and worked a few more stitches onto it to keep me motivated, I'll be working on this one today I think so I can finish it before Christmas....no promises mind you!
I also discovered these in a forgotten project tin so finished them off as well, I have another seven traced stitcheries of the Christmas tree to finish so may work on them as well today and tomorrow my crochet has been taking up a lot of my time lately and I decided my hands needed a bit of a hooky break, don't know how long it will last as I can hear my hook calling me to come crochet LOL......
Well I'm off to visit a few more of my sewing buddies blogs and see what they've been up to, I hope you too got a chance to spend a little time doing something you love last night :)

Doesn't it feel good when you get several projects all cut out and ready to sew! Lots of lovely Christmas stitcheries happening there too. Of course you'll be finished for Christmas!

Lovely stitching - isn't it annoying when you get home and realise you forgot what you went out for? but then you have another excuse to shop.

Lyn said...

lovely stitching, it is nice to have a change sometimes, and even nicer to really want to get back to what you were doing, lol. Glad to have a Christmassy friend :)

You inspire me to try some hand stitchery!
I just don't know where I will find the time though.
*sigh*

I love Spotlight!
