I can't believe it's now November. Where has the year gone?

What have I been up to? I've almost completed a small split stitch sample, yes it's taken a long time because of all the other pieces I've had to start!

I've done a Bayaux stitched small tree, that was finished quite quickly,

I'm half way
through a Goldwork S - for Sheila -

and I've framed up a crewel work piece that is my next start. All these are for my C&G course and are the prescribed samples I have to do for my illustrated history.

In the middle of all this I've been playing with paint, dye, paper etc, written part of my history

and, for fun, I've made a lovely box with one of my embellished pieces - yes it's purple velvet with silk embellishment and I love it.

Oh yes I made a small glass Christmas bauble at the Regional AGM.
