Full of Virtue

Firstly I have my Garden of Virtues, which I finished last weekend.

I loved stitching this pretty little design, and it certainly did the trick in luring my mojo back home.

Having said that I still had to grit my teeth when I retrieved The Quiltmaker, but it paid off and I am now back (plus a few stitched) to where I was before those pesky frogs made an appearance.  With all the rain we have had this week I am hoping the frogs decide it is more fun to play out in the garden that come and visit me again for a while.

So here is where I am now with The Quiltmaker
There is just one more blue pleat on her dress so I am hoping that I will get that completed and out of the way this week. 
Things seem to be going smoothly (fingers crossed it remains that way) with the sale of Mums house.  I have also managed to get most of my Christmas shopping done.  Just cards to make for December birthdays and a couple more special Christmas cards.  So hopefully before we go on holiday everything will be done and I can come back feeling relaxed.
I have sorted a small sampler out for holiday stitching, but now I am having second thoughts.  I am not sure about it so might pop one of my small Heritage Silhouette designs in too - they wont take a lot of room in my case and its nice to have a choice anyway. (or a spare in case I get a lot of stitching time).
I am sorry I have not had much time for visiting blogs, well I have hardly had time to write my own in the last couple of months, but I am hoping that after Christmas things might start to get back to normal here and I will have fun catching up with all your beautiful stitching again.
Love and Hugs to all, and many thanks to those who have taken the time to read my ramblings and a special hug to those who leave a message, which mean so much to me.

May your frogs stay in their ponds.
