I got distracted while at home on my extra long weekend and I did some stitching..
This is from the new pattern which I purchased on Friday last,
and so is this one.
Some words that appealed to me - I stitched them up to remind me it is time to get started on Christmas gifts.
The two following are part of a free pattern available over at Red Brolly, she has lots of free patterns available over there.
I love how the little snowman is all prepared with his umbrella - there has been a lot of rain around lately.
Of course all this staying at home and stitching has meant that the ripple has progressed very slowly, but I am getting back on track now with a couple of days at work before the weekend.
