Just before I had my surgery, I signed up for the Mega-Mini Month Madness SAL hosted at Pull the Other Thread. Pick a small or smalls, stitch and post about it each week in October - simple. As I am home for the month of October it seemed like a bit of extra incentive to get myself going on my ornament/small stitching again. I am hoping to finish a couple of pieces, but will be happy with just finishing this one:
This is Fondant Icing from The Nutmeg Company's Christmas Collection - Gingerbread Houses. These are great kits that include everything you need to stitch and finish that cute little gingerbread house shown in the picture. This is the last of the four Christmas themed ones I have in my stash but I do have four seasonal ones that I will eventually finish.
Here is my progress on the roof:
The only piece on my YOTA list that I stitched on this month was Chatelaine's Secret Victorian Garden. I started this piece in 2007 when it was the big mystery project. I kept up with it until July or August of that year and then I moved. I pulled it out and put a few stitches in here and there, but nothing that amounted to a lot. Then the Stitching Bandits Chatelaine Challenge started and I decided that it was time to give SVG some quality time. Not a lot was done this month, but I did go from here:
This has another day in the rotation and then on to Elegant Doily for a week.
