Some stash & a finish

Hi all

Well I've been a bit absent as my kids got me side-traked playing this game called Virtual Villagers! What a time waster it is! Amusing though, that's for sure. So for about a week there I didn't put a single stitch in!

Have managed a bit more of late although no update pics yet! Today I even started something new to kick start the mojo a bit, Just Nan's In The Tin - Hop Needlebook fob. It 's only little so shouldn't take too long to stitch up. Otherwise I've been working on my VS Jingle Bells Xmas Tree Farm and have almost finished part 4, just a bit more of the over one lettering to go, then I'll post another pic.

I do have a couple of pics for you this time around though, wouldn't be the same without a pic or two now would it!

Here's a stash order I made the other day when I was bored at work! Courtesy of ABC Stitch and their clearance page as well as a few other additions! No affiliation etc etc...
Just Nan Over The Top Snow & Grow, Just Nan Wicked & a Just Nan Bell pull.

I also did th e finishing on a fob, this was my ïn the car"project so took longer than it would if I had done it at home. I filled the fob with some of those plastic pellets which are normally used for filling bears, they work well and give a good weight to the fob too. Thanks for the tip Lynne! Here's apic of it attached to the Kelmscott Love scissors which have been waiting for a fob for a while now!

Heart in Hand Wee Flowers scissor fob.

Well that's all for now, hopefully it won't be quite as long between posts!

Oh, almost forgot, I was asked by one of my readers which project was my favourite or if I indeed had one. I don't really have a set favourite and tend to enjoy whichever project I am stitching on at the time.

Happy Stitching all
