Here's my TUSAL for December. I know, I'm late, but as it's the end of the year and I have collected quite a few ends from this month's stitching of "Butterfly" and "Stitch by Stitch", gathered in my mini thread catcher, I sooooo wanted to join in!
It really looks as if some sewing has been going on here!
But, I guess ..... come January we start a new jar?
If you haven't heard about TUSAL pop over to Daffycat's for all the gen, and if you would like to join in ..... now is the time to let her know ..... ready for 2018! Go on, what are you waiting for!
..... a monthly link party run by Jo of Serendipitous Stitching. We can link up each month from the 15th until the end of the month. If you would like to find out more and maybe join up go HERE!
I nearly forgot to say "Butterfly" and "Stitch by Stitch" were both gifts I've received ..... and, as such, qualifies them for Gifted Gorgeousness - read all about who's joining in with GG HERE (on Jo's blog).
..... has taken a long while to stitch as its been my "travel stitching" this year, and our journeys have not been very long, but hopefully it should be finished any day now!
"Stitch by Stitch"
..... looking back I haven't blogged about this one since July, when our big cat "Tom" decided he was going to claim my lap to sit on each evening. Well, he tired of that idea and I've bought new lamps for evening stitching and its gone from this .....

to this .....
It's only a quarter of the picture and actually I've started another quarter of the picture already, but don't have any photos yet.
Just before Christmas I received a very sweet gift from my blogging friend Benta, of SLIKstitches: a very handy scissor fob (just the right colour for my new purple scissors and a bag with a really appropriate quilt saying. In case you don’t know Benta, she’s really handy with her sewing machine and embroiders lots of badges for people, apart from the wonderful crafts that she teaches. You might not be able to see very clearly in my photo but the panel was stitched on with a very neat sewing machine buttonhole stitch.
There was also a lovely card enclosed ..... a picture of a quilt Benta had made. Thank you again, Benta!
Thank you all for visiting me this year. I look forward to your continuing visits, and to visiting you too in 2018!
I'll take this opportunity of wishing all of you a Very Happy and Healthy New Year!
Take care out there!
