Hello my friends.
 My birthday month already!!
This year is another big 0 one.
Laura of `The Little Stitcher` has a 
Mystery SAL.
`Christmas all the year vintage toys`
It`s a set of three when finished. 
The patterns come once a month,
12 in all.
I ordered the linen 32ct  Vintage Country Mocha
from my local stitching shop.
This took a few weeks to come,so last week I started. :)
The first step of one.

This close up showed me I had missed back stitching his coat.

Back stitching complete. He` so cute.
Pecan Pie threads is giving him a well loved look.

The colours are  The Gentle Art - Pecan Pie.
DMC: 310,3031,3865,3777,420 AND 935.
My start on step 2 with two extra DMC`s 829 and 520.
Loving how these colours are stitching up.

This last weekend we had our youngest grandson and his parents
staying with us. One of our daughters is sitting at the table 
looking on.
He will be 6 months the day after my birthday.

This year I hope to finish some works in progress plus others I could not say no too.
So back to stitching my mystery,
then onto one of the others.
Also my patchwork projects.

I don`t think I put block 4 in December .
Then below is block 5 for last month.

Time for me to go and stitch some more before tea time.
It has been so nice this afternoon as with getting some rain the 
it has cooled down quite a lot.
I will say it was a mad dash to get a woollen blanket of the line.
Happy Stitching,
