well first off I am going to show off my dd Neve's first trophy for her skating - she only skates at the weekend doing her Skate UK badges but really enjoys it and this was for first place in the bagdes 8,9 and 10 classes, she was so happy, it was really lovely to see..
I also received two lovely packages this week - one from Nicky for my F&S Christmas round - a lovely Lizzie Kate design which fingers crossed i will get made up into an ornie in time for this Christmas and secondly a lovely christmas tree filled with lots of sparkles from Janice from Friendly Stitchers for our Christmas ornament exchange - and this is already up on my tree. This is also my squares for Nicky for F&S
i've been managing to do a little more stitching on a couple of other pieces but between working two jobs and overtime, getting sorted for Christmas and trying not to go insane , stitching time has been missing somewhat - still got a few days off over the Christmas period so will catch up then hopefully.
thanks for all your comments, always much appreciated

Sent off a couple of exchanges what seems like ages ago, thankfully one of them has finally arrived - this was an exchange with Janice from Friendly Stitchers - i used a Sweetheart Tree design of a holiday fob, it turned out quite pretty..
Thanks for all the comments re finishing, so glad to know i'm not the only one out there who has a problem with it lol!
fingers crossed my F&S square will turn up soon. Now working back on my friend's baby sampler and a little Thomas the Tank engine which my wee boy has been asking me to do for ages - he was so impressed with his ornie that he now wants loads done! i will add WIP pictures soon..
hope everyone has a good weekend and aren't bankrupting themselves too much with christmas shopping.. bye for now
