I have finished Autumn at HRW. At least I have finished all I am going to stitch on it. There are two more blocks but I decided that I did not care for the one with tombstones and ghosts so it had to go. Then of course I had to get rid of another one to keep the rows even so Tom Turkey was sacrificed. Anyway I have a finish that I am happy with !

So it would appear that I have just completed the only easy part of Ella's Christmas stocking. Everything else is complicated with quarter stitches,frequent colour changes and I think some blended threads. Therefore I am going to give it a rest for today and go on to something less demanding like knitting a sock instead of stitching one.
2015 is off to a good start though. I am hoping that perhaps this will be the year ( OK maybe the month) that I will actually stick to a rotation....I think I have said that before.....

If this "bib" looks amazingly like a towel, then perhaps,that is beacause it is a towel, not a bib. I obviously was not paying attention when I plucked it off the wall in Walmart the other day. I also was not paying attention while I stitched the name,although I did wonder why the stitched band was wider than most bibs! So now Ella will have a towel as well as the bib below. I had to go to Joann's for the bib, but isn't it cute?

I am coming along on my Mystic Stich piece. All my other stitching is packed away in the car in anticipation of leaving at a moments notice so really unless I started something new, this is it. The baby is expected by Dec 3 or sooner so as soon as s/he puts in an appearance and we have a chance to ooh and aah we will be on our merry way to warmer climes.

Šo here is the famous baby blanket I have made for our new grandchild who is expected early in December. The original plan included a baby sweater to accompany it but ... That is not going to happen. Fortunately I have seen the baby's closet and the absence of a clumsily knit sweater will go unnoticed. Hereafter I will stick to socks.
At some point when I finished the ornaments in my previous post I may have mentioned that I was finished with ornaments for awhile. Well not so. I saw these from Sissortail Designs and had to stitch them up. It is amazing what you can do with B5200, some unknown leftover fabric and beads from a previous project!
Father Winter is progressing slowly. I finished the alphabet at Joyce's this morning and will do the back stitching on the letters tonight while watching TV.
